Join the world's leading young golfers in the American Collegiate System!
With the opportunity to compete at the highest level against the world’s top amateur players there is obvious that many of the European elite amateurs are heading to the USA on golf scholarships. At the start of the 2013 PGA Tour season over 82% of its members competed at the collegiate level before turning professional. A golf scholarship in America gives you the opportunity to greatly reduce the costs of your education by representing the university or college team. As a student-athlete on a golf scholarship you have access to top class practice facilities, professional coaching and world-class competition. America can also offer year round golf due to its climate and the schedule your coach will set the team. Some NCAA D1 universities even have their own private plane that transport players to tournaments.
As a client on our golf scholarship programme, you can be assured that United Sports USA will continue to exceed your expectations until you receive a scholarship offer that meets your needs. Places on our golf scholarship programme are limited to 12 male and 20 female clients for each recruiting class. You will work closely with Jamie Alexander, former student of Savannah College of Art and Design to find the right university or college.
At United Sports USA we understand that every client has different criteria when selecting a university or college and want to make sure that we manage your expectations from day one. United Sports USA prides itself on the fact that we tailor our service to meet your needs, not ours.
We hold golf assessment days throughout the year for applicants interested in pursuing an American golf scholarship. Our golf consultant Jamie will also be attending various National and Regional Tournaments identifying prospective players. He will assess the performance of potential clients as well as review academic credentials and explain the recruitment process and what the scholarship entails. Our current minimum handicap requirement is 3.0 for Male and 5.0 for female golfers.

"At United Sports USA we can afford to be very selective when choosing to work with a player. This enables us to achieve an unrivalled level of funding for our players in an environment that they are going to be successful. I am here to provide any additional support that a client needs during the selection process. This can be extremely daunting process when deciding where to spend the next 4 years of your collegiate career. I also keep a close eye on all of our players once they leave for America and I am delighted to see them improving each year. As a former student-athlete I can honestly say that my years spent in the USA on a golf scholarship were a fantastic and an experience that I would highly recommend."
