Our students learn from the pros – winners from the world of golf who are keen to share their knowledge and love of the game to educate and inspire.
The Humber Hawks have won 10 of the past 13 Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) championships. This past year we set the all-time record of 9, for most consecutive championships (over all sports) for the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA)! 12 of our student athletes have competed in world championships and several play on professional tours.
April 2015 - Congratulations to Barrett McCarthy (Humber second year student) for winning the NCAA Division 1 tournament at Saint Francis University in Loretto, PA. This win qualifies McCarthy for the Ontario Amateur Championship.
His inspiring performance in the spring of 2011 at the RCGA's University College Championship lead the Hawks to their 3rd title since its inception in 2003. In a field of 103 of the country's best collegiate golfers; Humber Captain, Mark Hoffman would dominate the tournament from start to finish. With scores of 73,74,71,69, he would finish as the only golfer under par for the tournament.
Mark would build on his successes from the collegiate season as he would go onto win the 2011 Ontario Amateur by 6-shots at Brampton Golf Club. He earned his PGA Tour Canada card in the spring of 2012 and an induction into the Hawks Hall of Fame. We wish "the Hoff" the best of luck in the 2016 season!
In the fall of 2011 the Hawks captured their 9th CCAA Championship in PEI at Brudnell Golf Club. After bogeying the 17th hole, Adrian held a 1 shot lead over team mate Hoffman heading to the par 4 - 18th. A birdie on the last made Cord the third Humber player in a row to win Nationals (David Lang and Mark Hoffman).
In 2013, following two seasons on the PGA Tour Canada Adrian became a member of the CPGA and began as Assistant Coach at Humber.
In the summer of 2011 four Hawks flew to Shenzhen, China to represent Canada at the 2011 Universiade. Ray Chateau, Adrian Cord, Mark Hoffman and Greg Belsito added to the list of 15 Hawks to represent Canada at the FISU games, this was Ray's 6th time as Canadian Coach.
The Canadian Team finished 8th out of 17 countries and the tournament was won by current PGA Tour star Hideki Matsuyama.
Maggie, in her two years at Humber, was a winner.
To prove the above statement is easy, as she won back to back OCAA Provincial and CCAA National team championships. She was a key factor in these wins, as individually, she won OCAA Gold and Silver and 2 CCAA Silver medals.
She then went on to win the most prestigious individual award a golfer can get in the college ranks, and that was the 2009 RCGA University/College Gold Medal.
Humber fast tracked her entrance into the Humber Hall of Fame, as she was inducted in 2009.
