Dancing Rabbit Golf Club
The 21st edition of the PGA University Championship—the National Championship for PGA Golf Management University programs—will be played Nov. 14-15 at Dancing Rabbit Golf Club in Philadelphia, Miss. The Championship, supported by Srixon/Cleveland Golf, is a 36-hole, team stroke play competition. Teams from 16 PGA Golf Management University programs consist of five players, with the four lowest scores counting each round.
The 16-team field is competing for the Jones Cup, which is named after the first PGA Golf Management University Program Director at Mississippi State, Dr. S. Roland Jones, who held the position from 1985 until his passing in 1997. The event provides a platform for participants to display professionalism, integrity, character and camaraderie—all characteristics Dr. Jones instilled in PGA Golf Management students.
All participating universities in the PGA University Championship are accredited by the PGA of America to offer the PGA Golf Management University Program for aspiring PGA of America Golf Professionals. There are currently over 1,600 students enrolled in the program nationwide.
