The 2010 Region lll Mens Golf Championship was held Monday May 17th and Tuesday May 18th, 2010, and the Genesee Community College Golf team qualified and competed.

Playing for GCC were Jeff Marcy, Matt Ferdinand, Ryan Winchip, Mark DeCook, and Alex Muench. The Robert Trent Jones course at Cornell University measured 6900 yards from the tournament tees, and it proved to be a good test of golf for the many talented players in the field.

Mondays round was played in good weather, but the scores ballooned for Tuesday's round which was played in a steady rain for the whole day. The GCC team was in fifth place after the first round, but fell to 8th place after the final round.  GCC's Jeff Marcy had an especially bittersweet experience, missing qualifying for Nationals by one stroke, but making the 2010 All Region Team by the
same margin. A couple of big numbers on the par 3's on Tuesday proved to be his undoing.

The GCC team completed it's season after Regionals, and finished in 6th place out of the 14 teams in the region.  Although disappointed with it's performance at Regionals, GCC hopes to move  forward next year with some more experienced returning players, and some new, more experienced players coming in.
