National Competition

Our location in the central United States allows us great flexibility when putting together a schedule every year.  We are able to schedule tournaments all across the country while still minimizing time away from the classroom.  We benefit from traveling to warm weather climates in the early spring and late fall to help lengthen our playing season.  Each year our schedule includes tournaments that pit us against some of the best teams NCAA D-I golf has to offer.   The events include playing some of the best golf courses in the world. 

The men’s team gets to travel annually to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to play in one of the best collegiate golf events in the country – the Cabo Del Sol Intercollegiate.  The strength of field, golf course, location, lodging are all top-notch at this event. 

Academic Awards

-        13 WGCA  All-Scholar recipients (3.5 or year GPA and compete in over half of team’s events)

-        Multiple All-League Scholar recipients (25 men have been recipients since 2007-08)

Family Atmosphere

With Coach Baszler leading both the men’s and women’s Jackrabbit golf programs, a true family feel has been formed.  All practices, workouts, meetings, goals and expectations are formed as one.  Often times the teams also get to travel together and compete side by side – including both the Jackrabbit Invitational and the Jackrabbit Fall Invitational.  The teams also have an opportunity each year to compete side by side each year it the annual Dakota Cup. (The Jackrabbits are 4-1 in the Dakota Cup since the 2006-07 season.)  Most recently, the two teams competed together and won the co-ed trophy awarded in the spring of 2013 at the Cal-State Bakersfield Roadrunner Invitational.
