Management
Superintendent,  James Laubach

Mission
We strive to provide the best possible playing conditions. Our focus is to provide consistency from green to green and hole to hole. We are able to do this because of the support we receive from the Green Committee, Board, and general membership.

Our recently begun tree management program allows us to harvest diseased trees, establish turfgrass in areas of rough where no soil or turf is present, and replant trees where voids occur.

Environmental issues are always at the forefront here at BGC. Our spray programs are preventative and curative. We try to spray only when the prevailing weather conditions tell us there is the potential for a problem or when we see a problem.

About the Course

The Bucknell Golf Club is a semi-private golf club, as well as the home course for the Bucknell men's and women's golf teams. BGC has the distinct honor of being ranked as one of the top 7 college golf courses on the east coast while also having the privilege of being selected to host multiple US Open Qualifiers over the past 15 years.
