Business Club seeks used golf club donations

The Fredonia Business Club, a student group open to all majors, is developing a program to provide basic golf lessons and course etiquette for students.

Recent studies have indicated that women and minorities feel that they are excluded from the informal networking that happens in their workplaces, especially the networking that often occurs on the golf course. To address this issue, the Business Club has started a new program with the goal of helping to improve students' golf skills. Of special interest to the club is providing female and minority students with the opportunity to develop skills that will better prepare them for the relationship building and networking that oftentimes take place on the golf course.

If you have gently used golf clubs and bags and wish to donate them, please email advisor Mark Nickerson at

The goal is to make this an annual program with lessons in the fall and culminating with actual course time in the spring. The Business Club has run golf tournaments in the past, and may plan a similar outing for “graduates” of the golf program, alumni, and stakeholders next year.
