Vanderbilt Golf Camp is designed to accomplish two things…to have fun and become better golfers! Campers will receive instruction from the Vanderbilt men’s and women’s golf coaches on basic golf fundamentals, skill and technique, course management, rules, and etiquette. Campers will have the opportunity to apply what they learn at camp as they compete against each other in team competitions and in one-on-one competitive golf situations.

Since his arrival prior to the 2012 campaign, Limbaugh has quickly established himself as one of the nation’s preeminent coaches. He has mentored four first-team All-Americans, four Palmer Cup selections, a Walker Cup member and 13 total All-America selections, all while also garnering six consecutive NCAA Regional bids and five consecutive NCAA Championship appearances from 2014-18 for the first time in program history. Under Limbaugh, Vanderbilt has won 20 team tournaments — the most by a head coach in Vanderbilt golf history — and garnered 16 individual tournament winners.
