The recruiting process for college golf can be grueling. Typically the process starts with deciding what you are looking for in a college: division level, academics, location, size and even the culture of the school. Once that is established, you then begin reaching out to college golf coaches through recruiting questionnaires, emails, phone calls and campus visits. Coaches then decide whether or not you are a good fit for the school and the program through evaluating your golf game, academics and overall character. One item that every college coach will check is your social media accounts, and it’s important to keep these clean, professional and relevant. This article will be your guide on what not to post on social media if you want the opportunity to get recruited by good schools.
As we all continue to enjoy the summer months, families across the country are looking for vacation ideas that will be fun and enjoyable for the whole family.

A few months ago we wrote on why caddying at a golf course is a great job for high school students. Caddying in the summer time can provide you a flexible schedule, a chance to form meaningful relationships with area business leaders and influential figures, and even free golf. One of the most prominent golf associations in the country today, the Western Golf Association, implemented the Chick Evans Scholars program in 1930 with an ambitious goal of sending deserving caddies to college tuition free. Today, the Evans Scholars program is the nation’s largest scholarship program for caddies.
A few weeks ago, we wrote on the Basics of the College Golf Resume. I wanted to show examples of both good and bad college golf resumes to send college coaches. This first example is a resume format/template that you would want to replicate. A few keys to a good resume include paying attention to detail, making it easily readable, and keeping the length to around a page. Including a picture of yourself or a link to your personal website or swing video is a nice addition that a coach will appreciate.
This past weekend marked the 2018 Spring Nationals for the NCCGA (National Collegiate Club Golf Association). 348 of the best collegiate club golfers from across the country competed at Norwood Hills CC and Bogey Hills CC in St. Louis, MO.

Are you a junior golfer who is aspiring to play collegiate golf? If so, you have probably thought about reaching out to college coaches, but you may be unsure of the best way. Similar to applying for a job, if you want to play golf in college, you need to create a resume that can highlight your success on the golf course and in the classroom.
