Ole Miss Women's Golf History
Ole Miss began a new era in women's golf in 2007, with the hiring of Michele Drinkard as head coach.
Since her arrival, the Rebels have made four consecutive NCAA Regional appearances, won a tournament title for the first time since 2004 and had two individual tournament winners. 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.
The Lady Rebels have 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 the addition of the Whitten Golf House, home to both the men's and women's golf teams.
The center houses team meeting rooms, locker rooms for both teams, coaches offices and areas for storage.
A new driving range for the 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.
