Colorado State head women’s golf coach Annie Young is in her fourth season at the helm of the Rams in 2016-17, and each year has drastically improved the program.

In 2015-16, her third year in Fort Collins, Young helped several record-breaking individual and team perofrmances, including a school-record 297-72 season stroke average – more than four strokes better than the previous best. Additionally, the Rams had three single-round scores rank in the school’s top-10 of its record brook, led by a school-record 9-under 279 at the Las Vegas Collegiate Shootout. That score was part of a three-round score of 849 (15-under) – also a school record.

Young mentored freshman Katrina Prendergast, who’s remarkable freshman season included setting school records for a single-round score and season stroke average, in addition to finishing runner up at the Mountain West Championships and qualifying for NCAA Regionals.

In her first season in Fort Collins (2012-13), Young led the Rams to six top-10 finishes, the most by a CSU team since 2003-04. The Rams averaged 308.1 strokes per round, more than a two-stroke improvement compared to the previous year. A year later, CSU dropped 56 strokes and moved up two spots at the 2015 Mountain West Championships. The team shot the fourth-best single-round score in school history at the Bay Area Intercollegiate (2-under 286) and on the season held the fourth-best season stroke average in program annals (304.52).

In her three seasons, Young’s players have garnered 15 Academic All-Mountain West honors, in addition to five WGCA Academic All-American Scholar accolades.

Young, who starred at Oklahoma State from 2001-05 and earned a degree in marketing, began her collegiate coaching career at OSU where she guided her alma mater for three seasons (2008-11). She then spent the 2011-12 season as the head coach at Cal State Northridge, before taking over the Rams program.

At Oklahoma State, Young led the Cowgirls to a pair of top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championships, as well as the 2009 Big 12 Conference title. She coached OSU’s first NCAA women’s individual champion in 2010 when Caroline Hedwall took home the top honors, also garnering 2010 GolfStat Cup Player of the Year and NGCA Player of the Year accolades. Five players earned All-America honors under Young’s tutelage, including Pernilla Lindberg, who finished third at the 2009 NCAA Championships.

Young's impact as an instructor was also key for the Matadors in her one season at CSUN, as she guided her squad to three individual tournament titles, and helped Clariss Guce earn second-team All-Big West honors – the highest such honor for a Matadors golfer since 2008.

One of the most decorated players in Cowgirls' golf history, Young earned first-team All-America honors and was the Big 12 Conference Player of the Year as a senior in 2005. She was the individual medalist in leading OSU to the team title at the Big 12 Women's Golf Championships and helped the Cowgirls to an eighth-place finish at the NCAA Championships. Young's career also included a 2004 Big 12 individual title, and she was a three-time All-Big 12 performer (2003-05). In 2004, she helped OSU to a second-place finish at the NCAA Championships, which marked the best finish in Cowgirls golf history.

As an amateur, Young competed in the U.S. Women's Open in 2003 and led the United States to a win in the 2004 Curtis Cup. She won the 2002 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship in Sunriver, Ore. The win also qualified her for the 102nd U.S. Women's Amateur. As a professional, Young has competed on the LPGA Tour, Duramed Futures Tour and the Cactus Tours, where she owns five career victories.

She is married to her husband, Caleb.
