Prospective Student-Athlete Information - Men's Golf
Men's Golf Questionnaire
We are excited about your interest in the University of North Texas and Mean Green men's golf. A golf magazine once called the University of North Texas the "Notre Dame" of men's golf -- for a very good reason. With 79 tournament championships, including four NCAA crowns and 28 conference titles to its credit, North Texas has earned international recognition in the sport.
In all, the Mean Green has competed in the NCAA Tournament 33 times as a team and placed in the top 10 on 16 of those occasions. The program's long list of successes also includes seven Lone Star Conference titles, two Gulf Coast Conference championships, 13 Missouri Valley Conference titles, three Southland Conference championships, one Big West Conference title and three Sun Belt Conference Championships, with the most recent on coming this past season.
Under head coach Brad Stracke, the program is having a rebirth to national prominence. After capturing the Sun Belt Conference men’s golf title for a second straight year in 2013, Stracke was named the Coach of the Year for the first time in his career. He became the first Mean Green coach to win the award since David Foster in 1999 picking up the fourth such honor in program history.
In 2013, Rodolfo Cazaubon was named to Golfweek’s All-America team as he was tabbed as an honorable mention pick after his record-breaking season. Cazaubon became the first North Texas golfer to be named an All-American since Mike McCaffrey in 1992 and is the 13th player in school history to earn the honor, picking up the Mean Green’s 21st All-America award since 1958.
Quick Hits On North Texas
While a member of the Sun Belt Conference, North Texas has captured 23 conference championships since 2001. Individually, 89 Mean Green student-athletes were named All-Sun Belt Conference during the 2012-13 school year. In its final year as a Sun Belt Conference member, the Mean Green won five conference championships, including four conference tournament titles. The five Sun Belt championships are the most that North Texas has ever won in a single season.

The Men's Golf Coaching Staff
Please note that, per NCAA rules, coaches can only respond via e-mail to juniors (after September 1) and seniors in high school. Coaches must mail responses to freshmen and sophomores, per NCAA rules. You can call any North Texas coach, but they cannot return your phone call unless you are a senior in high school.
The Mean Green golf teams worked out at a new indoor practice facility in 2006. Located on Bonnie Brae Avenue across from the athletic center, the Mean Green Softball and Golf Facility houses indoor putting and driving areas. This facility allows athletes from the softball and golf programs to hone their skills in the comfort of a climate controlled indoor practice range. For golf, the facility houses two net enclosed driving ranges and a putting green with full length wall mounted mirrors to help coaches and athletes monitor swinging motion.
The North Texas golf teams practice on some of the finest golf courses in the area, including Oakmont Country Club, Tour 18, Lantana Golf Course, Robson Ranch, Trophy Club, Golf Club at Champions Circle and Bridlewood Country Club.

Academic Athletic Services
In the Fall of 2005, the academic and compliance staff relocated to the Mean Green Village. Located on Bonnie Brae, the new Student-Athlete Development Center is three times the size of the former academic center. The Center serves as the cornerstone of the Mean Green Village and is only a short walk from the surrounding sports facilities.
