The deadline to register for the 2023 PWCC is Wednesday, March 22.
The PWCC, the most culturally significant championship in collegiate golf, annually hosts student-athletes enrolled in Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and other Minority-Serving Educational Institutions.
“The PWCC showcases the immensely talented student-athletes at HBCUs, HSIs, and other Minority-Serving Institutions around the country,” said Scooter Clark, PWCC Director. “After having over 200 students and 68 schools compete in 2022, we are excited to host another competitive field in 2023. Alabama contains the most HBCUs and HBCCs in the country while the historic and transformative city of Birmingham is a tremendous location to host the PWCC as we continue to spotlight these student-athletes and promote diversity in golf.”
The PWCC was created in 1986 to highlight golf programs at the most underserved and underrepresented Minority-Serving Institutions on a national stage, and educate and inspire student-athletes to pursue career opportunities in the business of golf.
The Championship is a 54-hole, stroke-play event contested across five divisions including: Division I Men’s Team, Division II Men’s Team, Women’s Team Division, Men’s Individual Division, and Women’s Individual Division.
The individual competition is open to all minority women and men student-athletes playing collegiate golf at the Division I, Division II, Division III, NAIA and NJCAA level, or minority women and men enrolled in one of the PGA of America’s PGA Golf Management University Programs.
