The Amherst men’s golf team traveled to North Carolina’s Pinehurst Golf Resort for spring break to train for the upcoming spring season. Although the players were excited to leave the frigid northeast, the team still braved 30-degree chills and rain while taking on the Trinity College men’s golf team. Although Trinity placed ahead of the Lord Jeffs in the NESCAC tournament this fall, the Jeffs defeated the Bantams by a score of 4-1.

“It was fun to get back on the course competing. The conditions weren’t great, but we played really well as a team. I think the win gives us a positive start to the spring season,” James Line ’16 said.

Harrison Marick ’17 describes the Pinehurst Resort as “golf heaven”, as the resort features eight golf courses and a state of the art practice facility.

“I think we all had some rust to knock off from the winter, but everyone made significant progress by the end of the week,” said Marick.

Coming off a successful spring break and a big win, the men’s golf team is focused on both Little Three’s at Williams and the NESCAC Championship at Midd. Amherst suffered a close loss to Williams last year in a tiebreaker and looks to reclaim the Little Three title they won in 2012.

“I think our team played really well this week, and our games are showing a lot of promise,” said senior captain Nicholas Koh.

“I think I speak for everyone on the team when I say we are excited for the snow to melt and eager to get back on the course. We definitely need some fine-tuning, but overall, I think our spring season looks promising,” Liam Fine ’17 added.
