Bio

Drew Goff is currently in his third season as head coach of Loyola's men's and women's golf teams after elevating the program to new heights in each of his first two seasons.

Last season, he guided the women's team to the NAIA National Championship, where they finished 17th overall. Earlier in the season, the women's team entered the NAIA Coaches' Top 25 Poll for the first time in school history following the team's victory at the Coastal Georgia Invitational, the third team title in Loyola history. Four members of the women's team earned SSAC accolades, including Madison Bates, who was named to both the All-Conference and All-Freshman teams.

On the men's side last season, Goff coached Philip Nijoka to three individual tournament victories, a spot in the field at the NAIA National Championship, and an SSAC All-Conference selection for the second-straight season after becoming the first All-Conference selection in school history in 2017. He also coached the men's team to a victory at the Redhawk Fall Invitational.

In the 2016-17 season, Goff helped guide the men's team to their lowest tournament score in program history at the SSAC Championships. On the women's side, he coached the first student-athlete in program history to earn an invite to the NAIA National Championship in Julchen Narwark.

Goff joined Loyola in 2016 after spending four years as an assistant professional at the New Orleans Country Club.

He is no stranger to the Southern States Athletic Conference, as he was a member of the William Carey golf team from 2007-09. Goff served as team captain for the Crusaders during his senior year and was named All-GCAC and All-Region XIII during the 2007-08 season.

After graduating from William Carey with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration, Goff took the position as head golf professional at the Covington Country Club where he spent two years before taking the head golf professional job at NOCC.

A native of Lucedale, Miss., Goff is a Class A PGA Professional and has numerous professional victories including the 2015 Gulf States PGA Professional Championship which earned him a spot in the 2016 PGA Professional National Championship as well as the Sanderson Farms Classic on the PGA Tour.

He started his collegiate career at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, where he was a member of the golf team while earning an Associates of Arts degree. During his time with the Bulldogs, Goff earned All-Region and All-State honors.
