Our camp provides a collegiate training experience like none other — bolstered by the experience and expertise of PGA and LPGA certified golf professionals, college coaches, a sports psychologist and an athletic trainer. Not only do campers get access to resources and facilities that a college player at Texas would, but they also get to know college players during the week. Rounding out the staff each year are student-athletes that represent the University of Texas. Getting to know college athletes on a personal level is typically one of the highlights of a camper's experience.
The 2019 Camp staff will not be announced until later in the spring but in the past, it has featured collegiate coaches from: Baylor, TCU, Houston, University of Alabama-Birmingham, Southern Miss, St. Edward's and Concordia to name a few.
Head Coach Ryan Murphy
In four impressive seasons at the helm of the University of Texas women's golf program, Ryan Murphy has returned the Longhorns to among the nation's elite, culminating with back-to-back Big 12 Conference Championships for the first time in program history and the school's best finish [T12th] at the NCAA Championship since 2004.
Murphy, who as an assistant coach helped the Texas men's golf team to the 2012 NCAA Championship, was named the fourth head women's golf coach in program history on May 29, 2014. Murphy's efforts have resulted in bringing some of the nation's top prep golfers to the Forty Acres and putting the Longhorns on a steady ascent to national prominence. He has been named the Big 12 Conference Coach of the Year in each of the last two seasons.
