Northeastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania


Recommended Posts

My buddy is looking to play college golf fall of 2014, I think he would like to stay somewhat local and he is definitely wanting to at least go on a partial scholarship he shoots 38 average during high school (I know it doesn't matter), but he went to the Ohio State Golf Camp and played pretty well against some really good golfers told me he shot 37 with a triple on 9 holes on the Scarlet, he shoots high 70's low 80's in virtually every tournament he plays in qualified for districts last year, his academics are iffy around a 2.7 is my guess takes some advanced courses, but know that he knows the importance on grades he is picking it up.

 

The main college I thought of is Lake Erie College, I know there are others and his golf coach is Joe Allen who coached Jason Kokrak who is on his sophomore year on the PGA Tour.

 

I know there are others and his academics definitely need improvement, but as a freshmen in college it is so much easier than high school and I am taking 17 credit hours.

My buddy plays for Tiffin an them seem to have a pretty solid team and facilities.

Best thing I could suggest is find schools with the major he is interested and then contact the coaches and maybe set a visit up with them.

Unless you are recruited you will not play....I walked on in college and made the team. I was beating 2 out of the top 5 players but the coach told me i would not play because I was not recruited. I was like wtf and I just quit....but NCAA says you must hold open tryouts.

Look into LaRoche, Point Park, California University of PA, and Westminster. I've had friends who have played for each school; some the academic requirements are lesser than others, some have more aid than others, but all will provide an education and have decent programs.

[/quote] LaRoche seems like it could be a good fit, the captain before me got an offer from Point Park, went to Cal for a open house thing the campus was really nice but it was in a strange location, but he might want to major in PGM so thanks for the feedback I don't think I even heard of Laroche when I was looking too bad I had such a horrible senior year.

Even if Herb Page recruits you is no guarantee you'll play. If he lands a higher recruit and you out play him to make the traveling squad... doesn't mean you make the traveling squad.

Few schools give "full rides" for golf.

I had been talking to Westminster for college. They have a great school, they play at a really nice facility at New Castle Country Club and play some good courses throughout the year. Penn State Behrend is a really great option if you want to stay DIII as well. My best friend played there for 4 years and they went to NCAA DIII Championships 2 out of the 4 years as well as the year following my buddy's graduation. LaRoche is right by my house and they play a pretty nice home course too. Point Park is kind of a rough place to try and golf because of it's location right in downtown, nearest facilities are kind of junky, not even really sure where they play. Clarion is DII and has a good program. I went up against one of their guys in some tourney's and he was pretty solid. RMU is DI but that might be tough to get on even though they're very minor in the golf world. IUP is one of the best DII programs in the country year in and year out. Really any of the branch campuses of PSU and Pitt are good if you want to golf but can't or don't want to be apart of the DI lifestyle.

Baldwin-Wallace in Ohio is another nearby DIII option, I knew someone who went there and really liked it. John Carroll is another ohio choice as well.

Baldwin Wallace, Lake Erie isn't a bad option, I know that for a d3 program you just need to apply to the school and show intrest in playing to the coach. That is what I am doing and it is working very well. Lots of d3 schools will show intrest. Just inform the coach. Email him call him and show him stats. Set up a visit. Most important thing is showing that your going to the school to learn and golf will be a bonus if you can play. What is your friends name because I'm a senior this year in high school from North Roaylton, Ohio and have played varsity for 4 years. I know a lot of people.

At a lot of D3 schools it comes down to not whether or not you were recruited but the potential of how big of donors your parents are that will determine playing time. I've seen it happen in a lot of sports including golf where the more talented player gets passed over for the one who comes from more family money because the school knows post-graduation that they'll get more $ in the form of donations from the family (and eventually the graduate) in return for playing time for that kid. They'll keep the talented players on the team for practice benefits but the game/match action goes where the $ is.
