NORTH ANDOVER, MA – Merrimack College has named Nick Crovetti its first-ever women’s golf coach.
“This is such an exciting and special opportunity for me,” said Crovetti. “I am really looking forward to building a NCAA program from scratch. I am very excited to recruit a group of talented student-athletes to Merrimack College and to work with the athletic department to build a competitive women’s golf program.”
Most recently, Crovetti is an assistant professional at the Bellevue Golf Club in Melrose, where he manages a 12-member staff, coordinates a daily tee off schedule, and also implemented a new instructional program for women and juniors, resulting in a 35% increase in participation. A certified Titelist and Cobra golf club fitter, his Junior Golf program grew over 13% in three years.
In 2009-10, Crovetti served as the Director of Golf at the Beverly Golf and Tennis Club, managing all operations, while increasing memberships, leagues and functions by more than 25%, resulting in $75,000 of new revenue.
A 2004 graduate of Central Connecticut State with a Bachelor of Science in Finance, Crovetti was a three-time Boston Herald and Boston Globe all-scholastic selection at Amesbury High School. A member of PGA of American in 2008, he was listed as a top-50 teacher by U.S. Kids Golf that same year. He also was the MIAA Individual High School state champion in 1995.
Crovetti currently resides in Wakefield with his wife Morgan.
The Merrimack women’s golf team will use Indian Ridge Golf Club in Andover as its home course. Prospective and current student-athletes interested in competing should email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
