St. Aug's brings back men's golf

Posted August 7, 2014

— Saint Augustine’s University announced Thursday that men’s golf will be re-instituted beginning during the 2014-15 season.

Robert Hinton will serve as head coach.

“I am very happy we have golf back,” said St. Athletic Director, George Williams. “I would like to give thanks to our [Interim] President Dr. [Everett] Ward for bringing back the sport. I think we have a young man who can get the job done for us.

“I want to thank [Interim President] Dr. Ward and Coach Williams for allowing me to lead this program,” Hinton said. “I am very excited about the opportunity to help our student-athletes be successful in the classroom as well as on the golf course.”

The men’s golf program was started in the 1960's by Earl Curry, a coach at then Saint Augustine’s College. The sport was a staple in the athletic department for over 37 years before it was put on hiatus in 2013.

Hinton, a former Garner High School and NC State football standout turned to golf when his NFL career was cut short due to injury. He was an assistant golf pro in Raleigh, N.C. for five years and a pro golfer on the Hooter’s Tour for another two years. Hinton is currently the general manager of Meadowbrook Country Club, a position he has held since 2011.

Hinton says he plans to seek advice as he prepares for his first season as Falcons’ golf coach.

“I’ll lean heavily on Coach Coleman’s expertise as I move the program forward,” Hinton said. “I want to continue the tradition of excellence that he built.”

With the addition of men’s golf, Saint Augustine’s University increased its number of varsity sports to 14.
