The annual National Junior College Athletic Association’s Division III Men’s Golf National Championships are set to take place at the Chautauqua Golf Club from June 6-10. Jamestown Community College has been holding this tournament through the Chautauqua Golf Club since the year 1999, and this year is going to be another really exciting tournament!
This special event is a 72-hole tournament fun for people of all ages to go and watch outstanding young talent at a beautiful golf course! There is free admission to the tournament, so if you are a golf fan or just want the chance to explore the amazing atmosphere this tournament brings to the Chautauqua Golf Club, make sure you make it down for some high quality competition and fun!
“Each year we host close to 50 colleges, 100 qualifiers, 100 college coaches and hundreds of family members, college dignitaries and friends” said former NJCAA Division III Men’s Golf National Championships Director Greg Fish. “Also in our 17th year, we are now the fourth longest continuing championship site in the entire NJCAA, behind Division 1 Basketball in Hutchinson, Kansas, Division 1 Baseball in Grand Junction, Colorado and Division 2 Basketball in Danville, Illinois.”
ERA Team VP Real Estate & Vacation Rentals has been a proud helping hand in this tournament for many years. Our company has hosted the golfers in company owned condos since 2003, and we are looking forward for their arrival on Saturday, June 4th! Every 3 years the NJCAA has the choice to move the location of the tournament, but they have kept coming back to Chautauqua for 17 years straight because the area has done such a great job with the tournament.
The economic impact of this tournament for the Chautauqua area is close to $500,000 annually. At the end of this year’s tournament, JCC and Chautauqua Golf Club will be putting in a bid in hopes to renew another 3-year contract for this outstanding tournament, and we can only hope that it stays in the area.
