Maryville College golf coach Ron Waters announced last week that Alcoa native Scottie Marsh will be a member of the Scots golf team this fall when Maryville will play its first season of varsity golf. Marsh grew up in Alcoa before finishing his high school career at Duluth High School in Georgia. On the amateur circuit, Marsh was the No.1 player for coach Lex Belazik at Duluth and placed in the top 10 in the region following his senior year. Marsh is a Jared Brentz Award winner and has won a club championship at Green Meadow Country Club.
“I am excited to have Scottie bring his talents home to East Tennessee,” Waters said. “His commitment rounds out a strong inaugural class and I look forward to see how the team comes together. Scottie will be a strong player for us and will push his teammates to excel.”
Waters directed the golf program at Heritage High School in Maryville in the late 1980s and early 1990s where his teams won two boys district titles and two girls regional titles. Waters is a five time Blount County Amateur Champion, winning his last title in 2003.
