Vancouver, BC – The UBC women’s golf team is pleased to announce the addition Emily Creaser and Eunice Hong to the program. The two new recruits will join the team for the 2015-16 season.

Creaser, from Edmonton, AB, was a National Girls Order of Merit Winner in 2014 on the Maple Leaf Junior Tour. She finished second at the 2014 PGA Alberta Junior Masters Invitational, is a member of Team Alberta girls high performance team, and is the reigning Metro Edmonton High School Golf Association City Champion playing for Harry Ainlay High School.

Hong joins the Thunderbirds from Thornhill, ON. She was ranked in the top 10 on the Ontario Order of Merit, finished fifth at the CN Future Lins Prairie event, tied for the 10th at the GAO Ontario Junior Girls Championship and tied for 27th at the Canadian Junior Girls Championship. 

“We are very excited that Emily and Eunice have chosen UBC,” said UBC head coach Chris Macdonald. “They are both excellent students, have proven to be good teammates, are community leaders and have both been ranked at the top of the national leaderboard for their age group in golf. I look forward to them joining us next September.”

Under the guidance of Macdonald, the UBC women’s program has won four NAIA National Championship Titles (2012, 2010, 2004, 2001), 10 Canadian Women’s University/College Championships, four straight Association of Independent Institutions Conference Championships, and are coming off a seventh place finish at the 2014 NAIA Championship in Lincoln, Nebraska.
