Show Your Support for a Top HBCU

This summer, the DC Aggie Athletic Foundation is proud to continue supporting North Carolina A&T (NCAT) State University’s tradition of academic and athletic excellence with the upcoming Annual Dr. James R. Lanier DC Aggie Golf Classic. Since 2008, the classic has provided vital support for Aggie student-athletes, funding academic counseling, study skills, and tutoring programs, as well as career counseling and scholarships.

An HBCU with a Triple Crown

At the classic, you and fellow golfers and supporters of NCAT athletics programs can come together to champion the university’s outstanding reputation as the nation’s largest Historically Black College and University (HBCU). NCAT is also the state’s only HBCU to hold the triple distinction of being a doctoral, high-research activity, and land-grant institution.

A Proud Tradition of Athletic Excellence

Among its athletic achievements, all of NCAT’s sports teams were able to successfully transition to the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) in July 2022. In July 2023, the university’s football team joined the Coastal Athletic Association (CAA) Conference, on the path to becoming the first HBCU to join the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS).

With your help, NCAT Athletics can make this dream a reality.

The DC Aggie Athletic Foundation is dedicated to supporting NCAT’s Athletics Department by promoting its student-athletes’ progress in sports and academics. These efforts include raising funds for athletic scholarships, facilities, equipment, and other resources to foster high performance in varsity sports and to provide high-quality experiences for both student-athletes and supporters like you.

This year’s Dr. James R. Lanier DC Aggie Golf Classic will take place on Friday, June 21, 2024 at the Oak Creek Golf Club in Upper Marlboro, Prince George's County, Maryland. As a golfing participant, you'll enjoy excellent conditions on the club’s semi-private, championship course, featuring a classic, 18-hole, par-71 layout of 7,000 lush, tree-lined yards.

Enjoy Golf as Part of a Team or Solo

If you join as part of a golfing team, you and your team members will have the chance to win trophies all around. As an individual golfer, you can compete for hole prizes, like the longest drive and closest-to-the-pin. There will be chances to win door prizes, too, so all participants will have the opportunity to come away with a memento of this memorable day.

Not Golfing? You Can Enjoy Board & Card Games, Too

Even if your golfing game isn't quite on par, you'll still have a chance to compete and win prizes at board and card games inside the club while the golfers golf. When the games are finished, everyone will come together to share a buffet lunch.

“We invite you to join us for another delightful day of golf at the picturesque Oak Creek Golf Club,” a foundation spokesperson says. “Your participation and support contribute to the legacy of excellence and opportunity that defines NCAT and its commitment to fostering the holistic development of student-athletes.”
