The Patrick Henry Community College Men’s Golf Team is on its way to the national championship tournament on May 19 in Scottsboro, Ala. 

Golf Coach Robert Weinerth is credited with much of the team’s success, according to Christopher Parker, vice president of institutional advancement and senior athletic administrator at PHCC.

“Robert has served as the golf pro at Chatmoss Country Club for 31 years and has coached at Carlisle School for 22 years,” Parker said. “When recruiting him to lead PHCC’s golf program, I knew he had the perfect skill set and background. I didn’t know how fast he would lead the golf team to the top of the ranks.”

Parker added, “Robert has done a phenomenal job with these young student-athletes. But this is a group effort because Brian Henderson and Enda Crehan have helped Robert solidify this nationally recognized program through international and local recruitment, and academic success.”

Weinerth, who was named the 2014-2015 Region 10 Coach of the Year, said the most rewarding part of his job “is the ability to open doors for student-athletes to transfer to a four-year college to continue their education and playing careers. I look forward to continuing to build this program, and I hope this success will bring notoriety to the college, community and these young men.”

The Patriot linksters won a total of six tournaments this year that include both the fall and spring region championships.

PHCC is prepping for the national tournament over the coming weeks and will host a community meet-and-greet at Chatmoss Country Club, 550 Mount Olivet Road in Martinsville, on May 13 at 6:30 p.m. for anyone who would like to meet the PHCC golf team.

“Coach Weinerth represents our college and our mission in everything he does, and for that we thank him and look forward to possibly bringing a national championship back to PHCC,” said PHCC Athletic Director Brian Henderson.
