Scott Moe ’95

Alumni, Faculty, and Administrator

Head Golf Coach in Athletics

Scott Moe, a 1995 graduate of Gustavus, recently completed his 17th year as the head coach of the men's golf team, and 10th with the women's golf team.

The Gustavus Adolphus men's golf team captured the 2012 MIAC Championship after firing an 885 (+21)  at the three-day meet.  Senior Alex Kolquist (Hermantown, Minn.) turned in a historic performance at the tournament by becoming Gustavus's 24th individual medalist.  Kolquist finished with a nine-under-par 207, the lowest three-round total in both Gustavus and MIAC Championship history.  The Gusties also placed Andrew Oakes (Jr., Hermantown, Minn.) and Tyler McMorrow (Jr., St. Cloud, Minn.) on the All-Conference Team.  Both Oakes and McMorrow finished fourth overall with 223s (+7). 

The Gustavus men’s golf team concluded its 2012-13 campaign with a seventh place finish at the NCAA Championships held in Destin, Fla.  The 2012 MIAC Champion Gusties shot a four-day total of 1200 (+60) to record their 10th all-time appearance in the top 10 at the NCAA Championships.  Moe’s squad was led by junior McMorrow who finished the tournament with a two-over-par 290 in a tie for fifth place.  McMorrow’s finish was the best by a Gustavus golfer at the NCAA Championships since Luke Benoit took second in 2004.  He was later awarded a place on the Golf Coaches Association of America All-America Third Team for his performance.  Also earning All-America honors was Alex Kolquist, who garnered a place on the first team after finishing the season with the sixth-best stroke average in NCAA Division III at 73.3 after 22 rounds. 

Last fall, the Gustavus women finished third at the MIAC Championships with a three-day total 985 (+121).  Three Gustavus players were named to the 2012 All-Conference team by way of their finish inside the top 10 at the MIAC Championships.  Kayleigh Dittes (Sr., Eden Prairie, Minn.) led the team in sixth with a 241 (+25), Sam Falk (So., Glenwood, Minn.) finished ninth with a 242 (+26), and Liz Strom (So., Fargo, N.D.) rounded out the group in 10th with a 246 (+26).  Dittes, Falk, and Strom were also named to the WGCA All-Region Team following the spring season. 

Moe has directed the men's team to seven MIAC titles in the past 17 years. His squad has qualified for the NCAA Championships a total of 14 times during his tenure at the helm of the program. The Gusties have posted top ten finishes at the NCAA Championships in nine of the last 15 years, including top-five finishes four times and a first place finish in 2004. During his tenure, Moe has worked with 29 individuals who have garnered 48 All-Conference honors, four MIAC individual champions, 12 Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars, and 14 individuals who have earned All-America honors 23 times.

Prior to the 2011 season, Moe directed the women's team to three consecutive MIAC Championships (2009, 2009, 2010), and eight of the last 10 NCAA tournaments, with finishes of 2nd (three times), 3rd (twice) and 6th (twice).  Moe has worked with 13 individuals that have garnered 29 All-Conference honors, 13 individuals who have received NGCA Academic All-American honors, and eight individuals who have earned All-America honors 15 times. 

Moe, a native of Elk River, Minnesota, has been named the MIAC Coach of the Year seven times (1997, 1998, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012) and the Golf Coaches Association of America's District Five Coach of the Year five times (1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99, 2001-02, 2003-04). Moe was named the GCAA National Coach of the Year in 2003-04, and was named the Women's National Golf Coaches Association National Coach of the Year in 2007-08, and again in 2009-10. Moe is believed to be the first collegiate coach to earn National Coach of the Year honors as a men's and women's golf coach.  During the spring of 2005, Moe also coached the U.S. Junior National Team to a World Cup title in Japan.

A standout golfer for the Gusties from 1991-1995, Moe won three MIAC individual titles and played on four conference championship teams. He earned All-America honors in 1993 and 1995 and was named a GCAA All-American Scholar in 1995.  In 2011, Scott was inducted into the Gustavus Athletics Hall of Fame.

Scott lives in St. Peter along with his wife, Sarah, sons, Logan and Jack, and daughter Libby.
