Rick Lucas is director of the PGA golf management program and senior lecturer in Clemson’s parks, recreation and tourism management department. Lucas sees the camp as a means to make Clemson the most diverse program out of 18 golf management programs in the nation and help prepare prospective students for the overall higher education experience.

“African-American women are sorely underrepresented in the sport of golf,” Lucas said. “We want prospective students in this camp to enjoy golf instruction, but we also want to provide insight into the curriculum and what it means to be a college and golf management student in general.”
