2014 Joe Feaganes Marshall Invitational

Guyan Golf & Country Club, Huntington, W.Va.

Matt Grobe is in his fourth year at the helm of the Marshall men's golf team after being named head coach in June 2012.

Grobe returned to Huntington after six years as the head golf professional at DragonRidge Country Club in Henderson, Nev. In that capacity, Grobe served in various Board roles for the Southern Nevada Chapter of the Southwest Section of the PGA of America since 2001, including President, from 2004-07.

In 2004, he was named the Southern Nevada Chapter Golf Professional of the Year and in 2007, he received the Bill Strausbaugh Award. He also served as the club's tournament director in 2004 before leaving for a year to serve as the director of sales at Lake Las Vegas Resort.

From 1998-2004, Grobe served as the head golf professional at Rhodes Ranch Golf Club in Las Vegas after a three-year stint as the assistant golf professional at Primm Valley Golf Club in Primm, Nevada.

With the Herd, Grobe replaces his former MU coach, Joe Feaganes, who retired in 2012 after 40 years with the program.

Grobe played for the Herd for three years (1993-95, a three-time letterman) after attending the Air Force Academy from 1989-92. Upon his 1995 Marshall graduation with a degree in business administration, he began his golf career at Sleepy Hollow Golf Club in Hurricane, before relocating to the Las Vegas area.

Grobe and his wife, Melanie, have a daughter, Mackenzie, and a son Cameron. Matt is also a son of Huntington native and former Marshall assistant football coach (1979-83) Jim Grobe, who was Wake Forest's head coach from 2001-2013.
