History

The Troy women's golf team has a relatively short history on the golf course. Yearly records for the women's golf team only date back to the 1993–94 academic year.

Since current head coach Bart Barnes took over the team in 2013, he has led the team to three NCAA Regional appearances, three conference championships, and multiple national rankings. One of Barnes's top record-breaking players at Troy, Fátima Fernández Cano, won the Sun Belt Conference individual championship in 2014. In 2016, despite the women's golf team falling short of another Sun Belt title, Fernández Cano received an individual at-large bid to the NCAA Golf Championships.

Barnes was named Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year in 2014 and 2015.
