Girls Golf Scholarship Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to shoot to get a college scholarship?

This is probably the most asked question when it comes to girls golf scholarships.  According to Junior Golf Specialist Frank Mantua,

 

"With all this opportunity, what does your daughter need to shoot to play at the college level? The standard as of 2010 is this: If a high school girl can shot around 95 in tournament conditions, college is a possibility. If she's in the 80s, there will probably be some scholarship money available.


Keep this in mind - if a female golfer has a scoring average under 80 in college, she is considered an excellent player. Remember, that is for Division I golf. There is also Division II, III and the NAIA. So you can see, scoring for females in college is very different than males
."
