What separates the Stanford Golf Camps from the others are the coaches who actively teach and oversee the day to day operations. The coaches and staff are recognized leaders in the golf world which is backed up by their accomplishments.
Anne Walker was handed the reins to the Cardinal program in 2012, with the 2016-17 campaign marking her fifth season as Stanford’s Margot and Mitch Milias Director of Women's Golf.
Walker made history in 2015 by guiding the program to its first NCAA Championship. Appearing for the 30th time, the Cardinal beat Baylor in the first-ever match play finish for women's golf. Walker became only the fifth coach to capture an NCAA title at Stanford in three or fewer years. The team followed this performance with a runner-up finish in the 2016 NCAA Championship
Walker was named the 2015 WGCA National Coach of the Year and Pac-12 Coach of the Year, as the Cardinal beat top-seeded USC and Pac-12 Conference rival Arizona to reach the NCAA final. She was also picked as the Pac-12 Coach of the Year.
In 2014, Walker led Stanford to the Pac-12 Conference title, the second in program history and first since 1999. The feat came against a premier field which made the Pac-12 Championships one of the best showcases of collegiate golf that season. Six Pac-12 teams were ranked among the top-11 in the nation heading into the tournament, including defending NCAA champion and top-ranked USC.
Conrad Ray, a former Cardinal standout and touring golf professional, is Stanford’s Knowles Family Director of Men's Golf. The 2016-17 season marks his 12th on The Farm.
During his tenure as head coach, Ray has led the Cardinal to nine appearances in the NCAA Championships, including the school’s eighth national title in 2007. The 2014-15 season was highlighted by back-to-back Pac-12 Conference titles for the first time in program history.
Stanford athletes have been well decorated under Ray’s watch, as he has helped produce 20 All-Americans, three Pac-12 Player of the Year, two Pac-12 Scholar-Athletes of the Year, three Pac-12 Freshmen of the Year, 15 first team All-Pac-12 selections and nine first team all-academic honorees.
“Stanford University and its men's golf program are two things that I am very proud to be a part of,” Ray says. “The history of our program, the beautiful setting of the Stanford campus, the education that a student-athlete receives, the facilities we have at our disposal, and the people that make Stanford what it is are all things that I look forward to experiencing every day of the week."

The 2016-17 season marks the fourth for assistant coach Lauren Dobashi, who joined the Stanford program in the summer of 2013. In 2015, she helped lead the program to its first-ever NCAA title.
In her first season with the Cardinal, Dobashi was part of a Cardinal program which won the 2014 Pac-12 Conference title, the second in program history and only since 1999.
Dobashi arrived on The Farm after three seasons as an assistant coach at UC Davis, where she was involved in all facets of the program and helped direct the Aggies to a top-10 national ranking, three consecutive individual and team Big West titles, and three consecutive Big West Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year awards.
A native of Gold River, Calif., Dobashi was a four-year letter winner at UC Davis. Dobashi played her final two seasons under Anne Walker, who served as the Aggies’ head coach for four seasons.
One of the first-ever recruits when the women’s golf program was established in 2005, Dobashi guided the Aggies’ transformation from its NCAA Division I debut campaign in 2007 to a top-30 mainstay during her playing career.
