Megan Menzel

HEAD COACH

Megan Menzel enters her 14th year as the head coach of the University of Iowa women’s golf program in 2024-25. Menzel joined the Hawkeyes in August 2011 after serving as a teaching professional at the Denver Country Club from 2009-11.

The Hawkeyes enjoyed a strong 2023-24 season, shooting four of the top 16 54-hole and six of the top 17 rounds in program history.  Iowa shattered the school record by 17 strokes, shooting an 847 at the Westbrook Spring Invitational in February.  The team had the top two rounds in the record books, shooting a 280 (-8) in round two before bettering it with a final round 279 (-9).

Individually, Menzel coached two players to school 54-hole records.  Madison Dabagia and Paula Miranda shot school record 209s (-7) at the Westbrook and Dabagia matched the record the following week, carding a 209 at the UNF Collegiate.  Dababia’s 66 tied the school record that was set in 2021.

Facilities

HOAK FAMILY GOLF COMPLEX

The facility features the 5,000 square foot Transamerica Performance Studio, highlighted by five indoor-to-outdoor hitting stations, V-1 Video Swing Analysis and Trackman technology. Players can digitally record, analyze and compare their swings and data to learn from the best in the world. The heated hitting stations open directly to the driving range and feature T-Line hitting surface enabling UI student-athletes to work on swing mechanics and full ball flight throughout the entire year, day or night.

The performance studio also includes a 3,150 square foot indoor putting and chipping green that can be modified like a natural grass green, effectively recreating outdoor putting surface conditions.

FINKBINE GOLF COURSE

Located on the western edge of The University of Iowa campus, just walking distance from Kinnick Stadium, Carver-Hawkeye Arena and Hillcrest Residence Hall, is Finkbine Golf Course. Started in 1953 and opened in 1955, Finkbine remains a source of great pride and beauty as the home course for the Iowa golf program.

The 7,280-yard, par-72 layout is prized by the University and Iowa City community alike. A tremendous test of golf, Finkbine was the site of the PGA Amana VIP Pro-Am for more than 20 years featuring the PGA's finest as well as national and local celebrities. In 1991 Finkbine also became the host of the Ben Hogan Tour - Hawkeye Open. Collegiately, Finkbine has been the site for the 1992 and 2002 men's Big Ten Championships, the Hawkeye Intercollegiate and the Big Four Invitational.

Built among the rolling hills and elevation changes of Iowa City, Finkbine challenges golfers of every skill level. The Robert Bruce Harris design features sloped greens and sand bunkering on 17 of the 18 holes. The signature 13th hole is an island green surrounded by water offering multiple tee boxes and two greens.
