John Colgate golfing

Join us as we salute Dr. John Colgate

Dr. John Colgate was the Coordinator of Campus Recreation and Professor of Physical Education at Western Illinois University from September 1964 through August 1994. Over the years, Dr. Colgate has mentored hundreds of students and professionals here at Western.

“Doc” is passionate about the game of golf. He has played in several amateur events, and attempted to qualify for the USGA Senior Amateur 12 times. “Doc” still plays golf year round, and can be seen in the Spencer Student Recreation Center when not on the course. The “Colgate Classic” is a tournament to honor Dr. Colgate and his contributions, and to raise money for professional development opportunities for Western Illinois University students interested in recreational sports.

Thank you to our sponsor
