The OG Green

SCU Men’s golf fans set foot on the holy land of golf this summer capping off a trip of a lifetime.

The OG Green

“An experience for a lifetime” is what SCU Men’s Golf Coach Andrew Larkin calls the opportunity to catch his sport’s oldest championship on one of its most famous greens. A full weekend at the 150th British Open capped off a six-day golf trip to Scotland for 32 Bronco golf supporters in summer 2022.  “It was an absolutely amazing opportunity to be able to experience the home of golf at such a historic event,” Larkin says. Larkin, along with SCU Women’s Golf Coach Krystal Kelly, Athletics Director Renee Baumgartner, Jim Lyons, vice president for University Relations, and 28 golf team donors and supporters played golf in-country in the run-up to the open. “We were lucky to get outstanding weather for all six days on the golf course and play six of the best courses not only in Scotland but in the world,” he says. A fan of the team? SCU looks for a repeat performance in summer 2023.
