Fall 2015 College Golf Preseason Rankings

The summer is winding down, and as schools around the country start back up so too does the Fall 2015 NCCGA season. Club teams across the country have been working hard and preparing for regionals, playing for an invitation to TPC San Antonio. 28 regions, and more than 250 teams, across the country will be vying for 29 spots (30 if you count Florida's automatic invitation) at NCCGA Fall Nationals. With the new season beginning next weekend, it's time to unveil the preseason Top 25 college golf rankings.

Similar to last season, the NCCGA Director of Media and Campaigns, Adam Englehorn, calculated the Fall 2015 preseason college golf rankings based on the following criteria:

  • Rankings are compiled using average differential scores from the previous school year. Scores from nationals are weighted heavier than regionals, and regional scores from previous seasons are taken into account as well.
  • To make the Top 25 teams must have participated in both regional events from the previous season.
