NAIA Men’s Golf Schools

Student-athletes who are looking for athletic scholarship opportunities, high competition, smaller class sizes and a well-rounded college experience may just find their dream school in the NAIA. Plus, these coaches don’t have to follow the same restrictions as NCAA Division 1 and Division 2 college coaches. They can manage their own recruiting process and reach out to student-athletes at any point during high school.

Which schools play golf for NAIA?

There are 250 NAIA golf schools across the country. Like NCAA Division 1 and Division 2, student-athletes at this level compete for equivalency scholarships. The average NAIA team is made up of 10 golfers, and coaches can award a maximum of five scholarships per team. Therefore, they usually divide their funds into partial scholarships across several athletes. From a competitive standpoint, the top NAIA golfers are averaging scores in the low 70s, while mid-to-low tier programs see scores in the high 80s. This level is also a great option for student-athletes who decide to pursue college golf later in their high school career, as NAIA coaches often recruit into senior year.
