July 5, 2018 – Davidson County Community College’s Storm Athletics program is expanding with the addition of men’s and women’s golf teams starting Fall 2018.
With the successes of the basketball and volleyball teams, DCCC Athletics is setting high expectations with the goal of competing against high level teams and eventually qualifying for the National tournament.
“We’re excited to be expanding our athletics program to include men’s and women’s golf,” DCCC Storm athletics director Kenneth Kirk said. “DCCC is excited to offer local and graduating high school golfers across North Carolina the chance to continue playing on a collegiate level with scholarship opportunities.”
The golf teams will find their home at the Winding Creek Golf Course in Thomasville. As a member of the National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA), the new golf program will be playing as a Division II team in Region 10.
Head coach Adam Buie is a Davidson County native who has dedicated his life to college golf. He has been a college golf coach for the past eight years: two years were spent as an assistant coach, and six as a head coach.
“To be able to do it and coach here in my home county at a school where I took classes is great,” Buie said. “I can already say we are going to surprise some people in year one. Most people will not expect much in terms of competitiveness and results, but with the players we have signed and the players I have that are interested, we will be able to hang with most of these teams.”
Previously, Buie served on the coaching staff at UNC Pembroke, West Alabama, Lyon College and Tusculum. He has been a part of 23 winning teams and 22 individual wins.
“I know these players are going to work hard and are just as excited as I am to get out there and play,” Buie said.
The teams will be hosting upcoming events in September or October in the fall, as well as March in the spring. The public is invited to watch these events and cheer the DCCC Storm golf players. The team’s fall and spring schedules will be posted on the athletics page of the DCCC website.
