Advisers Dr. Stanley Viltz and Dr. Gwendolyn Bookman

The Bennett Golf Club is an intramural program through which the student athlete may obtain knowledge of the game and ability to play golf with integrity; while using the sport as a means to physical fitness, personal well-being and development of social and business consciousness. General Education credit courses in Beginning and Intermeditate Golf instruction are available. Membership in the Bennett Golf Club - an approved student organization according to the policies of the Office of Student Activities, allows students and staff to obtain non-credit golf instruction and the ability to participate in the annual UNCF/Bennett Golf Tournament. Creation of the Bennett Belle Golf Team as a collegiate level sport for the student athlete is our ultimate goal and focus.
