Valkyrie Birdie Club


The Converse Valkyries golf team invites you to be a part of the excitement of our 5th year program by joining the 2016-17 Birdie Club!  We are thrilled to report that for the third year in a row, we finished third overall in the Conference Carolinas Championship!  We are looking forward to an even stronger finish in 2017.  

 Here is how it works:

  • Our team will play a total of five events in the fall, five regular season events in the spring, and the Conference Carolinas Championship for a total of 23 regular season rounds. With your support – we soon hope to qualify to compete in “post-season competition” at the Super Regionals and eventually the National Championship.

  • We are asking you to pledge a dollar amount for each “birdie” our team makes during the fall, the spring, or both seasons combined. The choice is yours!

  • Five golfers compete in our tournaments and most of our tournaments are two day events. If our team combines for 10 birdies in the first event and you pledge $5 per birdie, you would agree to contribute $50 to our program for that event.

Your contributions will be used to:

  • Help the Valkyries golf team reach the team goals that we have set like: Win the Conference Carolinas Championship this Spring!

  • Allow us to expand our tournament and travel schedule so our long-term goals of advancing to and contending in the NCAA Super Regional and National Championship events can become a reality.

  • Help finance necessary team equipment, uniforms, and individual player development cost.

Here is what you will receive in return:

  • Tournament updates on our website and Converse Golf Facebook page, as well as email updates throughout the Fall and Spring seasons.

  • Members of the Birdie Club will receive a Converse Golf gift of appreciation for being a supporter of the Valkyries Birdie Club.  

  • The pleasure and excitement of knowing you are an integral part of helping to grow an extraordinary golf program at Converse College.


At the end of the season, supporters have a chance to win a unique prize for the closest guess to the number of Birdies made in the 23 regular season rounds.

Your support is appreciated more than you know!
