Frostburg State Names Flowers Head Golf Coach

FROSTBURG, MD - Frostburg State University Athletic Director Ralph Brewer recently announced the hiring of Rick Flowers as head coach of its newly created co-ed golf team that will begin varsity play this fall.

The team will compete as a member of the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference and gives the Bobcats 21 varsity sports, including 12 in the AMCC. Frostburg State had a men’s golf team from 1958 to 1975.

"Rick has a wealth of experience as both a teacher and coach," said Brewer. "We are lucky to have someone with such excellent credentials as we resume golf as a varsity sport."

Flowers has served as the head golf professional at Maplehurst Country Club in Frostburg since March 2001. He oversees all individual and group lesson programs, administers tournaments and is co-chair of the golf committee.

Prior to Maplehurst, Flowers was the director of instruction at The Reserve Country Club in Stockton, Calif., for one year. He coordinated all teaching programs, conducted seminars and taught two Canadian Tour Professionals.

Flowers was also the teaching professional at John Jacob’s Golf Schools in Scottsdale, Ariz., from January 1998 to March 2000, where he instructed over 1,500 students in individual and group sessions.

Flowers is no stranger to local youth golfers, having served as head coach at both Beall (2001-2004) and Allegheny (1996-97) High Schools. In all, Flowers owns 15 years of golf teaching experience.

"I am looking forward to building a program from the ground up and am excited about the upcoming season," said Flowers. "We’ve received commitments from the Carroll and Calvert County Players of the Year and as well as a transfer from McDaniel, and we plan to be competitive right away."

Flowers earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from High Point (N.C.) College in 1989.
