How do I get a college golf scholarship?
Earning a golf scholarship is more than just about shooting low scores; it’s about shooting the scores in the right tournaments. Don’t expect to be found just because you are playing in tournaments. You must make the effort to get in contact with college golf coaches and continually update them when you have significant tournament results to report. 

How do I get a college golf coach to see me?
Coaches will only come to your tournaments once you have established contact and proven you are a serious recruit. Often times coaches are very particular about the tournaments they visit, so be prepared to go to those tournaments first. 

How do I improve my chances of earning a college golf scholarship?
With golf being a non-revenue sport, having good grades will help open up more opportunities. The more schools you can qualify for academically the higher your chance will be of earning a scholarship.

How do I get recruited for a golf scholarship?
College golf coaches want to recruit athletes who have great potential and strong fundamentals. Showing your potential goes beyond just playing golf.

The academic requirements for what a college golf coach is looking for changes based on university and division level.

NITIAL-ELIGIBILITY CLEARINGHOUSE

A central clearinghouse will certify your athletics eligibility for Division I and II. If you intend to participate in Division I or II athletics as a Freshman, you must register and be certified by the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse. The following web links will better clarify this process and start you on your way to being certified. This process will cost you $30 and can be done with your school or on the web (credit card needed). This eligibility clearinghouse basically is verifying that you took the required approved NCAA Core Courses while in high school. Since the NCAA is verifying your Core Courses, it is recommended that you apply AFTER your Junior year. When you take your SAT's, be sure to mark code 9999 on the test and your scores will automatically be sent to the NCAA Clearinghouse.
