Hunter Brown is the first head men's and women's golf coach at Goucher College, taking control of the programs in 2016.
After a year of recruiting, Brown led both teams in their respective inaugural seasons in 2017-18. During the year, Brown guided both teams to unprecedented heights for a first-year collegiate program.
On the men's side, Brown led Goucher to the first Landmark Conference Championship, as the Gophers bested host Scranton with a two-day score of 649 (315-334) by three shots. Two of Brown's players went on to earn All-Landmark Conference First Team honors in the event, as well.
The Landmark Conference Championship earned Brown and the Gophers a bid into the NCAA Division III Championships in Greensboro, N.C., where Goucher ended an incredible first year of intercollegiate play with a 35th place finish.
For his efforts, Brown was named the Landmark Conference Men's Golf Coach of the Year in his first year as a collegiate head coach.
Meanwhile, on the women's side, Brown led the Gophers to a third-place finish, with three student-athletes going on to earn All-Landmark Conference honors at the end of the season.
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.
