Iowa Lakes Men’s and Women’s Golf Team has a great tradition of success with 39 participants in the national tournament since 1997. The Laker men have finished 2nd 5 years in a row from (2007 to 2011) in the Region XI tournament. The team has been ranked consistently in the top 18 in the Nation for the last 5 years. Coached by Andy Soper, who is entering his fourth year as head coach, the Lakers' hard work both on the course and in the classroom have contributed to the large amount of success the program has had.
Since 2007, the Lakers have had 25 all region performers, a two-time Ping and NJCAA All-American, another NJCAA All-American in 2012 and 35 Academic All-Region performers. Scott Benson from Jackson, MN earned a Division 1 scholarship to Alabama State while winning the Region XI tournament individually as a freshman. Many Lakers have continued their academic / golf careers at four-year institutions ranging from NCAA Division I, II, III as well as NAIA.
