12 Campbell PGA Golf Management students partook in a retreat to the Pinehurst area last week to play the famous par 3 course, The Cradle, at Pinehurst Resort and Country Club.
“It was very cool to be able to get on the links in a non-competitive atmosphere and enjoy being with everyone,” said Tyler Reeves, a first-year PGA Golf Management major from Clinton, North Carolina. “It was great to focus more on having fun rather than being competitive.”
Students, along with Program Assistant, Quentin Cummings, and Assistant Director, Kevin Nagy, could not have asked for a better morning at Pinehurst, enjoying each other’s company, building connections, and playing golf.
“I thought it was fun to spend some time away from campus with other PGM students,” commented Jack Wredberg, a sophomore PGM student from Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina. “The Cradle is the best and a day spent there is a day well spent.”
Pinehurst is considered “The Cradle of American Golf,” so we are fortunate to only be an hour away from such a historic and amazing place in the golf industry. With 9 different golf courses, the Cradle Short Course, and the Thistle Dhu putting course, golfers can easily lose track of time with the amount of fun they can have at Pinehurst.
“Getting the students together to play golf at The Cradle allowed for fellowship and camaraderie between cohorts. This was a laid-back way for first year students and returning students to get to know one another on the golf course. We cannot thank the staff at Pinehurst enough for their generosity and we look forward to hosting another major retreat next fall,” said Quentin Cummings.
