HACC's home golf matches take place at Dauphin Highlands.

How did the 2015-16 season go?
The golf team had a very successful year.  They won the Lehigh Carbon tourney and the Regional Qualifier tourney.  They scored the lowest score ever for HACC Golf with a 302 at the Regional Qualifier.  At Regionals, the team struggled just a bit and finished 5th of 9 teams.  Kent Umberger qualified for Nationals and Stephen Rulis is the second alternate.  Kent will be going to compete in Chautauqua, NY, in June.  The team will hope to have at least 4 returning golfers for the 2016-17 season and are poised to once again qualify for Regionals.  Coach Birney is excited and pleased with this season and is looking forward to building on this next year.
