Field of Dreams XC Course
The home site for Houghton College Cross Country is located on the east side of the campus just off State Route 19. The course was built under the direction of retired Head Cross Country Coach Bob Smalley and is built solely for cross country. Athletes run entirely on a grass course that includes rolling hills and wide open fields for great spectator viewing.


Golf Tournament

This scramble is a two-person per team format. Both players tee off. The one with the worst shot picks up his/her ball, and then both players hit their next shot from the where the best ball is. Every shot is played from the best ball location. It's great fun! So there is one score per team. We will be sending people off four at a time (two teams per foursome). If you would like your twosome (make sure that you both register) to be paired with another specific team, please note that when you register for the golf scramble. If you wish to play and don't have a partner, we will be happy to set you up with one.
Each Par 3 hole (there are four of them total) is a potential HOLE IN ONE Prize Winning opportunity. Win great prizes for an ace, including a $10,000 hole!

There will be prizes for the winning team.
