Head coach

Iowa Conference Coach of the Year--2011, 2012, 2013, 2015

Chad Green took over as the leader of Central College's tradition-rich men's golf program in 2010.

Green piloted the Dutch to four Iowa Conference titles and four NCAA Division III national tournament berths in his five seasons. He's a four-time league coach of the year honoree. Central's 2015 league title was their 32nd. Central shot the lowest score as a team in each of the four rounds and had four golfers finish in the top 10, including first and second place. The Dutch advanced to the NCAA Division III national tournament for the 33rd time, where they took 16th place.

A St. Louis-area native, Green previously served as head women's golf coach at Maryville Univ. (Mo.). He also served as director of instruction at the Country Club of Sugar Creek in High Ridge, Mo. He also assisted with the men’s golf program at Maryville, an NCAA Division II institution in St. Louis, during his two years at the school.

Green previously served as an assistant golf professional at the Cedar Rapids Country club and the Forest Highlands Golf Club in Flagstaff, Ariz., holding the latter position while he was competing on the Pepsi Golf Tour. He is a Clarke College graduate and was a three-time first-team all-Northern Iowa-Illinois Conference honoree (2004-05-06). He also served as a student assistant coach for the Clarke women’s golf squad for one year.

Prior to joining the Maryville staff he was head golf coach at Southwestern High School in Hazel Green, Wis. in 2008.

Justin LivingstonJustin Livingston
Assistant coach

Former all-Iowa Conference performer Justin Livingston rejoined the Central men’s golf staff as assistant coach in prior to the 2015 fall season.

Livingston, a Winterset native, is a 2014 Central graduate and three-time NCAA Division III tournament participant, finishing in a tie for 27th nationally in 2013. He received conference player of the week honors five times in 2012 and 2013, and earned all-league distinction three times, placing second in the medalist standings in 2011 and 2013 and third in 2012.
He served as an assistant coach for the Dutch during the 2014 fall season, then was hired as head coach at AIB in January, but the school’s athletics program was dropped in May.

“We’re really excited to have Justin back in our program,” said head coach Chad Green. “He can teach the guys a lot from personal experience about what it takes to be a successful player in Division III. He’ll also really help with recruiting. He knows what to look for in a good college golfer. And he still plays a lot, so he sees a lot of players.”

Livingston also serves as a certified personal golf coach at GolfTEC in West Des Moines.
