The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh women’s golf program has its new leader.
Jeremiah Hoffmann ’16, was named as the sixth head coach in the 26-year history Thursday. He previously served as the head golf professional at Rolling Meadows Golf Course in Fond du Lac, director of golf at Mascoutin Golf Club in Berlin, head boys golf coach at both Winnebago Lutheran Academy and St. Mary’s Springs Academy in Fond du Lac and head men’s golf coach at UW Oshkosh’s Fond du Lac campus.
“I’m excited to welcome Jeremiah to our athletics program,” said UWO athletic director Darryl Sims ’03, MS ’05. “Jeremiah’s enthusiasm, commitment and passion for golf and the entire student-athlete experience was extremely evident during the selection process. I believe he is prepared for this opportunity and ready to take our student-athletes to a new level of performance.”
Hoffmann started as a student on the Fond du Lac campus and earned a liberal studies bachelor’s degree from UWO in 2016 and a master’s degree from Ohio University in 2021. He is a high school graduate of Winnebago Lutheran Academy.
Hoffmann was the head golf professional at Rolling Meadows Golf Course from 2009-18 and the director of golf at the Mascoutin Golf Club in 2020.
Hoffmann guided the boys golf team at St. Mary’s Springs Academy from 2019-21 and led the Ledgers to a Flyway Conference championship and a Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Division 3 regional title in 2019 and 2021. He was the head boys golf coach at Winnebago Lutheran Academy from 2004-18 and the school’s head boys basketball coach from 2009-18.
Hoffmann was the director of athletics, head men’s basketball coach and head men’s golf coach at UWO Fond du Lac from June 2017 to February 2020. He also served as the director of athletics at UWO Fox Cities from May 2019 to February 2020. Hoffmann has been the director of business development and community relations at the Community First Champion Center in Appleton since October 2020.
Hoffmann, a certified member of the Professional Golfers’ Association of America, replaces Beth Hubbard as head women’s golf coach. Hubbard guided the Titans in an interim capacity during 2020-21 academic year following the retirement of Liza Ruetten.
“I’m extremely grateful for this opportunity to join the UW Oshkosh athletics department and lead the school’s women’s golf program,” said Hoffmann. “The program has a history of success, and I can’t wait to help our student-athletes build on that tradition.”
The team begins its 2021-22 season by hosting the Titan Classic on Sept. 4-5 at the Oshkosh Country Club.
