In the short six-week season, the Augustana Golf team carried five men and one woman: Braxton Fox, Darion Geddes, Chase Martin, Brandon Gacek, Cole Feth, and Celine Amundrud. Coached by Camrose Master Pro, Bill Penny, and Assistant Coach, Neil Hepburn, the Vikes had a successful second season in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. The first Regionals Tournament (South) at Magrath Golf Club and hosted by Lethbridge College saw the men finishing fifth out of eight teams. At North Regionals, hosted by NAIT at Goose Hummock Golf Resort, the men finished third out of eight teams. Conference Championships were held at Cardiff Golf and Country Club and hosted by MacEwan University. The men finished fourth as a team, falling just short of qualifying as a Team for the CCAA National Championships. Braxton Fox qualified as an individual golfer for Nationals, held in Loretteville, Quebec at Club de Golf Lorette. Fox finished in 61st place with a score of +17 over two days.

Moving into the off-season, the team will begin training using their golf simulator and will continue developing their skills in hopes of a team National qualification in 2015. Coach Bill Penny plans to bid for 2015 North Regionals, as a great opportunity for showcasing our beautiful golf course and the City of Camrose.
