Men's college golf is as competitive and talented as ever. Scores are incredibly low. Golfers from all over the world are recruited to compete for teams throughout the country.
The Division 1 golf scene in New England is made up of 11 teams that compete in various conferences. They play against each other at times and also travel as far as Hawaii for matches against teams from around the country.
The makeup of all of these teams is different. Some are young. Some are veteran-laden. Others are a mix, with myriad players stepping up each week. One program is brand new this year.
Local players like Jared Nelson and Will Lodge rode hot summers into the fall season. There are players with scoring averages in the 60s and teams with multiple wins.
The spring season is about to kick off, so let's take a look at each Division 1 men's program in New England — with a glance at where they stand in Golfstat's national rankings.
