PITTSBURG — The Pittsburg State University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is expanding once again.
After announcing the addition of women’s soccer last August, the University will restart its men’s golf program in 2024-25 and launch a women’s golf program beginning in 2025-26.
Pitt State suspended the men’s program following the 2013-14 season. The program will now return to campus following a 10-year hiatus. Pitt State will begin the process of creating a first-ever women’s golf program to launch in the 2025-26 seasons.
Both programs will practice and host home meets at Crestwood Country Club.
“This is another exciting day at Pittsburg State,” Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Jim Johnson said. “When we made the difficult decision to suspend the men’s golf program in 2014, I was confident this day would come. It was simply a matter of time to take all the necessary steps to re-launch the program with the resources for success. Not only are we confident we have accomplished that goal, but we believe we are ready to begin the process to launch a women’s program as well.”
Pitt State is in the process of identifying and hiring a full-time coach to lead both programs.
With the addition of women’s golf and the re-launch of men’s golf, Pitt State will offer eight women’s sports — basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, volleyball and indoor & outdoor track & field — and seven men’s sports — baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf and indoor & outdoor track & field.
