Methodist University Founders Council Golf Pro-Am Tournament

Founders Council Golf & Tennis Tournaments

November 1, 2023

Methodist University is home to a beautiful 6,370-yard, 18-hole golf course and one of the country’s top PGA-accredited Golf Management Programs. This par-71, recently renovated golf course located on the MU campus, is one of the most unique and challenging in the region. The practice facility at MU was recently ranked 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 seven programs in the U.S. accredited by the United States Tennis Association (USTA). The courts at the Gene Clayton Tennis Center were 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. by American Sports Builders Association.

This event 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.
