The Linville Cup will feature multiple opportunities for players to interact with the coaches and staff. Mentorship is a big component of this event and we hope
the players will take away many life lessons, confidence and friendships to build their golfing career on.
Our coaches will be ex-collegiate golfers as well as women business leaders who will
share their experiences with the girls. This event will provide a unique experience for players to compete and develop in a team environment.
2023 Team Coaches:
