Karli Heimbecker

It didn’t take long for Karli Heimbecker to work her way up from assistant coach in 2015 to head coach of Lynn’s successful women’s golf program—winner of five national championships.

“Karli has a service-minded coaching philosophy and embodies the Lynn attributes of spirit, service and strength,” said Devin Crosby, Lynn’s athletics director. “I look forward to watching women’s golf flourish under her leadership.”

Heimbecker had a successful run in her first season assisting the team, winning one tournament, logging five top-five finishes and helping two student athletes win three individual titles. “Karli has advanced the women’s golf program in year one,” said Crosby.

The program finished the season ranked ninth in the country in NCAA Division II and had the seventh-best GPA in the country among all NCAA divisions and NAIA. Five team members achieved Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar honors.

“The chance to be a part of a dynamic, cooperative, innovative and family-oriented athletics program is an amazing opportunity. I am looking forward to carrying on the rich tradition of this program.”

Before joining Lynn, Heimbecker was a graduate assistant coach for the men’s and women’s golf teams at West Georgia, and played a large role in the Wolves receiving the first NCAA bid in school history for the men’s golf program and a top-10 national ranking the 2014–15 season.

Heimbecker completed her four-year college golf career at the University of South Florida in 2013, after competing in 21 tournaments, including two Big East Championships.

“It was there that I picked up inspiration from my college golf coach, Marci Kornegay, to pursue a job in college athletics,” she said.

She graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in international studies and a minor in general business administration.
