COURTNEY SWAIM TRIMBLE

Courtney is a dynamic personality who has collected many top accomplishments during both her playing and post-playing careers. It all started after a standout junior career landed her at Auburn, where she was an All-American, a three-time All-SEC player, played in two U.S. Women’s Opens and was a member of the victorious 2002 U.S. Curtis Cup team. She collected a 3-1 record that magical week at Fox Chapel Golf Club in Pittsburgh.

After dabbling in professional golf for a few years Trimble found her way back to Auburn where she started her college coaching career. After three years there she jumped to UCF for her first head coaching job and then went onto Louisville from 2012-19. At all three places Trimble helped her teams find unprecedented success.

Trimble’s coaching success made her realize how passionate she is about helping players progress through their respective golf careers. That is why Fore Hire was created.
