Recently, Molt’s players have reached great success as Meghan Doherty became the only female golfer to play with the men’s team in program history during the 2009-2010 season. Steve Zychowski qualified to play in the United States Amateur Championship in both 2010 and 2012, and is a two-time first team All-Patriot League selection.

Molt took over the program in the fall of 1976, following the
retirement of Gerry Anderson. He has led the teams to a great deal
of success, with the men’s squad making back-to-back
appearances in the NCAA Tournament in 1982 and 1983, in addition to
claiming a number of Worcester City championships. In October of
2006, Molt received the Gordon McCullough Coaching Award from the

Molt offers a wealth of experience not only as a golf coach, but
also as a teacher of the game.
Bob Molt on the Holy Cross Golf Program
“Holy Cross plays a full schedule in both the fall and spring. Our tournament itinerary is very similar to that of other colleges and universities in New England.
“The golf team plays at the prestigious Blackstone Valley National Golf Club. We also practice at the South Meadow Golf Center. Both of these facilities are just a 15-minute drive from campus.”
