Golf Scholars, the global website for US scholarship recruitment, has been the talking point amongst young golfers over the last couple of weeks. With 43 coaches already signed up, player members are taking advantage of the platform to build their profiles and search for colleges that suit their academic and golf requirements.
The platform works by providing players with the opportunity to take ownership of their own profile page. The profile is unique to each player and acts as a promotional page. It is here that academic information, swing video, player image, a personal statement and a number of other indicators are uploaded. 
Each player also has their own stats program, where they can upload the competitive rounds they play. From the rounds played, 20 golfing stats are produced and presented on the player’s profile. Coaches can then search profiles and contact players that fit their academic and golf program requirements. 
Players can also contact coaches at colleges they are interested in attending.
The college recruitment process has numerous strands and Golf Scholars has provided comprehensive information about the process, even down to helping the player plan when to take the required tests depending on their desired enrolment date.
The website has been built with member security as its key fundamental. All college coaches who become members are vetted to ensure they have joined the site legitimately. Players can also only view college profiles and no player can view other player profiles. 
In addition, no member emails are visible on the website.
 In depth help information is available to assist players at all times
Membership is for 1 year from date of full registration, although Golf Scholars is currently providing 2 years for the price of 1 as a loyalty offering for members who sign up before the 2nd of September 2013. Even without this offer, the pricing philosophy has been put in place to ensure it is a young golfer’s academic and golfing ability that gives them the opportunity to gain a scholarship, not financial resources.
An “Info for Parents” page is available on the homepage in order to answer any questions they may have. Gavin and Liam can be contacted at or via the contact form at
