Head Golf Coach David Boslough
David Boslough ’15 became York College Head Golf Coach in September 2016 when the job was elevated to a full-time position with the addition of a varsity women’s program. He was intrigued when he heard about the job at his alma mater. Having the opportunity to maintain and elevate an already successful men’s program and also having the ability to build a women’s program from scratch held great appeal for the former Spartan standout.
Boslough went through the interview process and was a big hit with the search committee. He has rewarded the faith of the committee with a pair of outstanding programs that are primed to compete at high levels in the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) and the Mid-Atlantic region.
“When the job became available, I was interested immediately,” he says. “I had a great experience as a player and I knew that the men’s program had the ability to be a player on the national stage. Combine that with the ability to grow a women’s program from the ground up, and it was a pretty easy decision for me.”
Both Spartan programs earned the final Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) championships that were held in 2019. The men’s team earned a bid to the NCAA Division III National Championships, the fifth berth in school history.
Boslough’s Spartan career was one that was full of individual and team success. He owns the sixth best scoring average in school history at 78.25 in 53 career rounds. He was part of York’s 2013 CAC Championship squad and he was a three-time All-CAC finisher in his four years as a Spartan. That experience helped shape his philosophy as a head coach.
“My time as a Spartan player has helped me become the type of head coach who could bring out the best in each and every one of my players,” says Boslough. “I believe in the ability of our program to develop our golfers as both students and athletes.”
The women’s program is getting ready to start its fourth season this spring and its success is undeniable. The Spartans have won eight tournaments in just two and a half seasons of competition, including the 2019 CAC title.
“I am proud of what we have been able to build and the success we have achieved on the women’s side in a relatively short period of time,” Boslough says. “Our goals are lofty and our players are excited to see what we can do this spring.”
Boslough and the Spartans kicked off the spring campaign on March 20 when they hosted the Spartan Spring Opener at Royal Manchester. The Spartans will play in eight tournaments culminating in the MAC championships.
