Notre Dame Women’s Golf became a varsity sport in 1988. Since that time, the team has been led by 5 coaches—George Thomas, Tom Hanlon, Ross Smith, Debby King, and current head coach Susan Holt.
The program has made 11 all-time appearances in the NCAA regionals and also advanced to the NCAA championship in 2011.
Notre Dame finished in the top five at its conference tournament in eight of its first 10 seasons under head coach Susan Holt, a decade highlighted by three titles during Notre Dame's final six years in the BIG EAST (2008, 2011, 2013).
In the 2016-17 season, Emma Albrecht qualified and finished 13th at the 2017 NCAA Columbus Regional, marking the second-best finish by a Notre Dame women’s golfer in NCAA regional play.
Since 1990, Notre Dame golfers (past, present or future) have participated 42 times in one of the three main women’s golf tournaments sponsored by the United States Golf Association (USGA)—the U.S. Women’s Open, the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, and the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship.
