2018 Board of Visitors Tennis and Walking Golf Tournament
Methodist University is home to a beautiful 6,200-yard, 18-hole golf course and one of the country’s top PGA accredited Golf Management Programs. This is one of the most unique and challenging golf courses in the region. The practice facility at MU was ranked in 2014 by the Golf Range Association of American as one of the Top 50 Private Ranges in the country.
MU’s Professional Tennis Management Program is one of only four programs in the U.S. accredited by the Professional Tennis Association (PTA). The new courts at the Gene Clayton Tennis Center were recently featured in Tennis Industry Magazine as a Distinguished Facility of the Year and was ranked one of the top nine hard court facilities in the U.S.
The Board of Visitors Tournament is the once-a-year opportunity for the public to play these distinguished, private tennis courts and golf course. We invite you to spend the day on our beautiful campus with MU students and experience tournaments like none other in our area.
The 2018 tournaments will be played on November 7, 2018. Click here to register.
