“We hosted our National Collegiate Club Golf Association’s Championship at the Birck Boilermaker Complex. With over 300 golfers traveling from across the country to West Lafayette, the Kampen and Ackerman-Allen courses couldn’t have been in better shape for a great challenge. This was the second time the championship was hosted here and we will be sure to come back in the future.”
