What is the college golf experience like? Depending on your school, division or coach, answers will vary greatly. However, there are many commonalities. Let’s understand some of the basics of college golf across seasons, tournaments, practice schedules and a ‘week in the life’.

Most college golf programs play two seasons: fall and spring. The fall season lasts from September to early November and the spring season lasts from late February to late May. Most schools play roughly 4-5 tournaments in the fall and anywhere between 4-8 tournaments in the spring.   The spring season is generally regarded as the more important of the two seasons as it contains your conference tournament which is the most important tournament of the year and can lead to a NCAA tourney bid.   Lastly, in the off season most programs strongly encourage the team to both workout and practice on individual time over the winter months and play a competitive summer tournament calendar.

A Week In The Life


To give you an idea of what a typical weekly schedule is like based on the components talked about in this article, see the above graph.   It may seem like a lot, but once you get used to it and use tips talked about in our time management article, it becomes very manageable and a fun time!
