EMU Men's Golf- Spring Training Trip
The EMU Men's golf team is looking for donations to help fund the annual spring training trip, January 26 - 28. This trip is important to the program as it allows our team to practice on an advanced course. The course that the team is traveling to for this trip is Lake Jovita Country Club 20 miles north of Tampa, Florida. Lake Jovita offers two courses; the South Course and the much more wide open and scenic North Course. The South course at Lake Jovita sits on a 220-acres and was designed by US Open Champion Tom Lehman and renowned course architect Kurt Sandness; the plan for the south course was to take advantage of hilly terrain to create a course that was of professional tour quality. The North course sits on a total of 263-acers and was also designed by Kurt Sandness; the North course takes advantage of elevation changes and is the more scenic of the two courses. From the second tee box you can see five to six miles to the north east. Lake Jovita is a beautiful and challenging course that will allow the EMU Men's Golf team to practice on a challenging and difficult course that will benefit the individual golfers on the team throughout the season.
The Spring Training trip allows our Student Athletes to gain experience at a course that is unfamiliar to them. The experience gained on this trip will carry with our Athletes throughout the coming up season. The specific courses at Lake Jovita will bring a challenge to our Athletes that is not accessible at every Country Club, and will be the host site of the Eagles first tournament in the spring. Lake Jovita was created by a US Open Champion and will give our Athletes the ability to play on a course that will challenge their skills and improve their versatility, which will benefit them well into our season. Lake Jovita will give our Athletes the ability practice well before the season ends, and the courses around Ypsilanti open again after the winter. Please help us get to our final destination by donating at an amount which you are comfortable.
Thank You for your time,
