UC Santa Barbara Men's Golf Alumni Giving Challenge

Under the direction of new head coach Chris Massoletti, UC Santa Barbara Men's Golf is on an upward trajectory in the Big West and NCAA West Region.

In order to recruit and compete at a nationally competitive level, Coach Massoletti has identified scholarship funding as the top priority for the program.  We are excited to announce the creation of the Gaucho Alumni Scholarship Fund for Men's Golf.  This fund will provide scholarship funding directly to student-athletes on the golf team.

Currently the golf team is funded with approximately 2.85 in-state scholarships out of the maximum 4.5 allowed by the NCAA.  In order to compete with funding for both in-state and out-of-state scholarships, a goal has been set to raise $100,000 for scholarships by June 30, 2023..

Will you help the Gauchos as they ascend to NCAA golf prominence?  We have mapped out a plan to reach our goal.  As you will see from the chart below, any amount will help.  Please consider giving at the level you are able by selecting the "Donate to UCSB Golf" button below. A huge thank you to all of the alumni who have already generously given!
