In 37 seasons of New England Championships, HCC has finished first or second on 17 occasions (11 firsts and 6 runners-up). Greg Strattner, the first HCC golfer to be named first team All-American, was ranked #2 in the nation in 2008. The team has participated in national tournaments in Arizona, Florida, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas, as well as the annual New England Tournament in May. Golfers come together in the fall and train for the spring season throughout the year in the Bartley Center. The team uses golf courses throughout the Pioneer Valley, with Chicopee Country Club currently serving as HCC's home course.
The 2008 season was one of the best in the history of HCC golf. The team was undefeated in Region 21 play (18-0, 31-2 overall), won the Cobleskill Tournament for the first time, and finished ranked #10 nationally by the NJCAA. Individually, freshman Greg Strattner finished ranked #2 nationally by the NJCAA, and was the first HCC golfer ever to be named 1st Team All-American. Both Greg and fellow freshman Tim Fanion were named to the All-New England Team.
Holyoke CC's current golf coach is Chris Stoddard who has led the Cougar team very successfully since taking the helm in 2013. In 2016, HCC hosted the New England Championship Tournament at The Ranch Golf Club. Cougar golfer, Colby Manning, qualified for the NJCAA National Championship Tournament in 2016 by way of his tremendous performance in the New England Championship Tournament.
