Men's Golf

 

Introduction

The Green River men's varsity golf team plays on two of the finest golf courses in the South Sound Region. Partnering with Meridian Valley Country Club and Washington National Golf Club as their home courses has proved to be a great relationship for the Gator golf program. Green River has won the NW Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) Championship in 1998, 1994, and 1987.

In 2012 and 2013 the Gators finished as a team in second place at the NWAACC Championships due in large part to Broc Johnson's back to back medalist performances at the championship tournament. The NWAACC Player of the Year, Johsnon will continue to play college golf for NCAA Division I, Arizona State University in 2013-14.
