The Myth of the College Golf Scholarship

Golf ScholarshipsI love golf. But not everyone is motivated by love for the Masters and a birdie. A "tiger mom" reads a newspaper article about unused golf scholarships. The next day she has signed her six year old up for golf lessons. A decade of green fees and lesson expenses is an investment that is going to pay off in a big way. Or is it?

There are 289 NCAA Division 1 men’s golf programs and 210 in Division 2. For women there are 235 NCAA Division 1 programs and 128 Division 2 programs. There are 178 NAIA men's golf programs and 163 women's golf programs.

That sounds like a lot of opportunity to get yourself a “full ride” golf scholarship.
