KALAMAZOO - A year ago, the Milham Park Golf Club proved to be a stumbling block for the Calvin men’s golf team. On Thursday, the course became a potential building block for the Knights who are making a strong bid for a big push up the MIAA standings at the mid-point of the conference season.
On Thursday, Calvin posted a third place team score of 298 strokes at the fourth MIAA Jamboree of the league season, hosted by Kalamazoo at the Milham Park Golf Club, allowing the Knights to move into a tie for second place with Adrian in the overall team standings. A year ago, the Knights closed out their 2008 MIAA campaign at the same course, fading to a sixth place team score of 329 strokes, leaving Calvin in fifth place in the final league standings.

After a sixth place conference finish in 2007 and a fifth place finish in 2008, the Calvin men’s golf team is seeking to continue to move up the MIAA ladder this fall. Whether that will happen or not remains to be seen but the Knights do return three individuals that cracked the top-25 in the final MIAA individual rankings last fall.
“The building process is working with our program,” said Calvin men’s golf coach Brian Bolt earlier this summer. “We will be deeper and more complete this year, as this is the first year in three that we will have seniors on the team and have made room for a strong freshmen class.”
