G’day Rebel Golf Fans!
Often announced “On the tee from Las Vegas & Australia”, sophomore sociology major, Jack Trent, took a big stride closer toward his dream last week when he captured The 2019 Southern Highlands Collegiate.
Here he is pictured with his trophy, Coach Knight and Shriners Hospitals for Children PGA Tournament Director, Patrick Lindsey.
By virtue of that epic 3 hole playoff win versus Cole Hammer of Texas, all UNLV and Las Vegas golf fans must highlight their calendars to go out to support Jack and other Rebel Golfers who will qualify to compete at TPC Summerlin October 3-6, 2019.
This story is unlikely to have escaped your attention last week but in case it did, you can actually watch the final round events as they unfolded thanks to a live stream broadcast produced by Thaler Media using innovative technologies and distributed via The USA Today/ Golfweek Network.
Rebel Golf has a rich tradition and a fine track record for producing #RebsOnTour but such Cinderella stories would not be possible without the generous support of our Las Vegas Community and our Rebel Golf Foundation members.
Founded in 1987, our foundation’s mission has always been to support competitive golf opportunities of UNLV Student-Athlete Golfers and we are gathering some momentum toward our goal of bringing more Championship trophies (Conference and NCAA) home to Las Vegas.
Many thanks for considering membership which includes many opportunities to interact with our team and current/future winners on the world golf tours.
Our community events include Rebel Golf Day scramble golf tournament (this year on Monday November 4th at Las Vegas Country Club), NCAA Selection Show Party, Short Game Clinic at Shadow Creek, Alumni Match, Collegiate Am, Champions Circle Dinner, travel opportunities with the team and other outings yet to be determined. In addition we will provide you with swagbagfuls of exclusive team uniform apparel items along with personalized updates from the team’s national and international competitive golf campaigns.
Next up for the Rebs is our first of three trips to Arizona. We will tee up in the National Invitational Tournament hosted by the University of Arizona at the OMNI Tucson National Resort over spring break. We will play 36 holes on Monday March 18th and a final 18 holes on Tuesday March 19th.
