For all of you 2026 recruits who have been waiting, now is your time! Starting June 15th, college coaches can now communicate with you via email, text, phone, and video chats. Hopefully, you have already taken the initiative to reach out to them over the last few months. While the communication begins on their end, the expectation for you to initiate communication has been there for months now.

Keep in mind though that not everyone is going to hear from coaches on this date. For some top-ranked recruits who are being recruited by the top-ranked golf programs, it’s a bit more of a sprint, for all of the others it’s more of a marathon that is likely to continue throughout junior year and into senior year. Also, many coaches at the lower DI, DII, DIII, and NAIA levels are still working to finish up 2025 recruiting and aren’t focused on 2026 just yet. And if your resume isn’t quite realistic for the programs you have been contacting then you may not get any emails or calls. That’s ok though. Don’t get discouraged. Keep in mind there is still plenty of time both to improve your game and to explore more options that are more realistic.
