Hunter Brown is the inaugural head golf coach at Goucher College and is tasked with founding the Gophers first-ever men’s and women’s golf programs. Both teams will commence play in the fall of 2017 and Goucher is very excited about this new era in athletic history.
Coach Brown played collegiate golf at the University Texas at Arlington from 2009-2013 garnering three-time all-conference honors, two-time All-America Scholar honors, a Southland conference team championship, and the opportunity to compete in multiple NCAA regional championships. Brown served as a team captain for the Mavericks and was known for his outstanding short game, committed leadership, and tireless work ethic.
Since graduation, Brown has competed professionally at various levels. Notably, he was a Monday qualifier for the 2014 PGA Tour’s Valero Texas Open. Though Brown has shifted his full-time focus toward coaching, he still enjoys competitive golf and hopes to qualify for future events. Coach Brown sees his past and ongoing competitive experience as a major asset in his role of developing golfers at Goucher.
Additionally, Coach Brown has worked with the organization College Golf Fellowship and through this experience he developed a passion for positively influencing student-athletes on and off the course. Brown is committed to creating an environment at Goucher that allows his players to develop and succeed athletically, academically, and personally.
In May of 2015 Brown married his wife, Amberle, and since then they have been residents of Baltimore. Brown is also an active member of Freedom Church and a part-time graduate student at the St. Mary's Seminary and University in Roland Park.
