Ole Miss began a new era in women's golf in 2015; bringing head coach Kory Henkes to the program.

Henkes comes to Oxford after a four-year stint as head coach at GRU Augusta. She had six years of head coaching experience under her belt prior to coming to Oxford.

Henkes was successful in building GRU Augusta into a perennial top-25 program over the course of her four years at the helm. The Jaguars advanced to the NCAA Regionals in three of Henkes' four years and the former South Carolina standout hopes to have that same kind of success to Ole Miss.

There have been successful runs in the Rebels’ program in recent memory. Ole Miss appeared in four straight NCAA regionals from 2009 to 2012 under head coach Michele Drinkard. During that run, Dori Carter became the first ever All-American in the history of the program.  Carter, a native of Valdosta, Ga., ended her career as one of the top golfers in the history of the program. She ranks in the top two in nearly every category, including the lowest stroke average in a season with a 72.84 in 2008-09.

Overall, Ole Miss has been to NCAA Regionals in 1998, 1999, 2003, 2004, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.  Eight Rebels have earned All-SEC honors, including Carter as the only two-time All-SEC first team selection.

Several improvements have been made to the University Golf Course, including top-notch facilities providing the best environment for the student-athletes to grow their game and compete for championships.

A new driving range for both the men’s and women’s teams was added in 2006, as well as a short-game facility in 2009.  The latest addition to the teams is the Herrington Golf Center, which opened in January of 2012.  The Clay and Elinor Herrington Charitable Remainder Trust provided a gift to construct the 3,600-square-foot indoor-outdoor practice facility with hitting and video bays that enables the collegiate golfers to continue their practices regardless of weather conditions.
