American Colleges are looking to recruit student athletes

Golf NSW invites junior golfers to trial for its officially supported American college recruitment program – NSR Australia.

NSR enters its tenth year of operation in Australia in 2016 and currently partners with many Member Sporting Federations across the country including, Golf South Australia, Golf Victoria, Golf Queensland and Golf New Zealand.

NSR will be hosting trials with the view of identifying potential American college golf prospects that have the ability to play full-time golf.  These lucky athletes will have the chance to continue their golf experience in extremely professional American College Golf Teams whilst studying for the degree of their choice.

As students do not enter the College system until they have completed Year 12, the NSR Australia program is now making a number of places available for student athletes who are currently in high school years 9, 10, 11,12, 1st year Uni, TAFE or taking a gap year. 

The NSR program is designed to match players with Universities that cater to their needs, ability and academic standing.  No two players are alike and NSR ensures that players who are successful at the trial and invited to an interview are provided with all necessary information, including associated fees and the way the college system operates.  NSR works with many colleges across all divisions and across all US states.

Prior to attending a trial, we recommend you review the NSR website ( and seek advice from your parents/guardians to see whether this opportunity is right for you.

Make the most of this opportunity to showcase your skills to NSR Australia under the watchful eye of Golf NSW qualified coaches.

Please note: NSR Australia requires that at least one of your parents/legal guardians attend the trial on the day.

The trial will run for about 80 minutes.

The trial will be held on:

March 20th at Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club, Stonecutters Drive, Colebee NSW 2761
The 'Home of the NSW Open Golf Championship'
