Went on Saturday morning. Walked the whole course, it was amazing. Stopped by the NIU hospitality tent. Wish there was a little more NIU singe around for the TV cameras.

RE: NCAA golf championship
Went out to today and also was impressed with organization and friendliness of the operation. Saw President Baker in the gallery, modestly playing the part of casual fan.
Only drawback was my 83-year old father having difficulty traversing a 340-acre course. But, staff would occasionally come by in carts and ask if people needed rides.
Loved seeing all the different colleges represented and the school colors worn by fans and players.

Pat on the back, thank you and appreciation to folks like scottiep12, Diehard Huskie, golf4501, HuskieFamily, and numbersdontlie, for volunteer work and to all those supporting with their presence, but disappointing that the article linked above (and other Golfweek coverage) doesn't even mention Northern Illinois University as the host.

Probably because Illinois is playing and all lol. there is an NIU logo on every flag which is nice. But honestly, what are you looking for? There is a big NIU flag at the entrance, one on the course, there is an NIU logo on the scoreboard, and an NIU logo on each hole's flag. Or are you hoping more for the golf channel to say: "This tournament is of course hosted by NIU, the finest institution north of the mason dixon line if you ask me."

Totally agree. Very well run and lots of great exposure for NIU.
