Men's Golf

The University of Dubuque men’s golf team offers you plenty of chances to play and compete on some of the Midwest’s best golf courses. The Spartans compete in tournaments in the fall and spring semesters.

Each year the squad travels south over spring break to enjoy warmer weather and a chance to prepare for the spring conference season and the Iowa Conference Championships held in April and May. There is not a better way to hone your golf skills than being a member of the Spartans golf team and learning from legendary coach Jon Davison. Davison has spent most of his life coaching and mentoring student-athletes who want to achieve their best on and off the course.

Biography - Click to close

Jon Davison (C'61), retired as Clarke's head basketball and men's golf coach and returned home to the University of Dubuque in 2007.

Davison will be entering his 45th season in the collegiate ranks as he coaches the men's golf program for the Spartans. He spends time re-connecting with Dubuque Alumni as special projects coordinator for the development office.

Davison, a native of Aledo, Ill., has spent nearly 50 years in the coaching and teaching profession. He started his collegiate coaching career at his alma mater in 1966. Davison logged over 300 wins in 27 seasons as head basketball coach at UD. His squads posted an overall won-loss record of 371-320 and had four 20-plus win seasons.

During the 1980's, Davison's squads dominated the Iowa Conference, compiling the best won-loss record over that 10-year period. His 1986, 1988, and 1990 squads won the Iowa Conference championship. The Spartans qualified for the NCAA Division III tournament in 1981, 1986, 1988, and 1990.

Davison was named Iowa Conference Coach of the Year in basketball in 1986, 1988 and 1990, and in golf in 1975. In 1990, he was awarded the Paul Maaske Award as Iowa's Small College Coach of the Year. He coached eight Conference Players of the Year at UD.

Davison served as director of athletics, head men's basketball coach (27 years), head golf coach (15 years), head track coach (6 years), head tennis coach (3 years), head cross country coach (10 years), head baseball coach (1 year), assistant football coach (8 years), associate professor of physical education and department chairman (20 years) at UD at various times from 1966 to 1993.

Davison lettered in four sports at the UD, where he garnered four letters in both football and track, two in basketball, and one in baseball.

After a three-year hiatus from collegiate coaching, Davison joined Clarke's coaching staff in 1996. He guided his 2005-06 squad to a 17-10 mark and its first Northern Illinois - Iowa Conference championship. Clarke finished 11-1 overall in league play. The Crusaders' championship season came on the heels of a 20-7 campaign in 2004-05.

Davison guided Clarke's men's golf program to seven straight Northern Illinois - Iowa Conference championships from 1999 to 2005. Davison was named the conference Coach of the Year in 1998-99, 1999-2000, 2001-02, 2002-03 and 2003-04. He was named the 2004-05 NIIC Co-Coach of the Year.

Davison met his wife, Nita, while a student at UD, and two of their children received their degrees from the institution.
