Scott Moe ’95

Alumni and Administrator

Head Men's and Women's Golf Coach, Instructor in Health and in Athletics

Scott Moe, a 1995 graduate of Gustavus, will begin his 19th year as the head coach of the men's golf team, and 12th with the women's golf team in 2015-16.

Following an up-and-down regular season, the Gustie men came together when it mattered most and turned in a second-place finish at the 2014 MIAC Championships. Although Gustavus shot a tournament-best 300 (+12) on day three, it wasn't enough to catch Bethel University. The Gusties registered a three-day team score of 912 (+48), winding up six strokes behind the MIAC champion Royals, who tallied a 906 (+42). The team's much-improved play was highlighted by the emergence of rookie Chris Captain (Rochester, Minn.). Playing with poise and maturity beyond his years, Captain claimed the 2014 MIAC individual championship after shooting 217 (+1) over the course of the three-day event. Captain is the 17th individual medalist in school history and just the fourth to do so as a freshman.

After posting a pair of top-three finishes at regular season tournaments, the Gustie women capped their fall campaign with a fourth-place performance at the MIAC Championships. Ranking sixth following the opening two days of the tournament, Gustavus shot its best round of the weekend on day three and jumped ahead two spots to a fourth-place standing with a tournament total of 982 (+118). Jordy Drenttel (Sr., Inver Grove Heights, Minn.) led the way for Gustavus with a three-day total of 242 (+26) to earn All-Conference honors, while first-year McKenzie Swenson (St. Louis Park, Minn.) later made the team as an at-large selection.

Moe has directed the men's team to seven MIAC titles in the past 17 years and 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 31 individuals who have garnered 50 All-Conference honors, five MIAC individual champions, 13 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 16 individuals that have garnered 34 All-Conference honors, 16 individuals who have received WGCA Academic All-America Scholar 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 daughters Libby and Tessa.
