The King's College men’s and women's golf team, started as a club team in 2010, is now in its third year as a program competing in a variety of events. Seven members of The King's College Golf Team traveled Springfield, MA in October for the College Golf Alliance Regional Championships.

750 colleges and universities nationwide take part in this competition all hoping to make it to the National Championships in Las Vegas in June 2014. Reese Evans and Sean Spurlock shot a 67 to take first in the event and earn a spot out in Las Vegas. For the Fall of 2014, The King's College Lions, will join our varsity-level teams as members of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association(USCAA) and National Christian Collegiate Athletic Association (NCCAA).

They are a group of students dedicated to the team and excellence of every kind, and strive to serve the Lord in the classroom as well as on the course.

Thomas Palmgren

Head Coach, Golf

Coach Palmgren has most recently coached at NYU-Polytechnical here in New York City, and he is also the founder and president of the non-profit Harlem Golf Alliance.

"I believe that young people need to understand that in all of sports golf is the sport that will give you great opportunity. You enter the work force and the BOSS is not going to ask when are we going to shoot hoops or kick and throw the ball around, he or she wants to know do you play golf and that lets you in to socialize with the people that can help you move upward. Golf is the coorprate game the net working sport not to know how to play is to take yourself out of the loop. That being said let me help you develop the skill that could help your career."
