“I am excited to name Mark Bryson the next head women’s golf coach here at Monmouth,” said Director of Athletics Jeff Stapleton. “Mark has a strong background in the game having been a contributor to the golf community for over 30 years. His knowledge of the New Jersey golf landscape is a tremendous asset and we are excited for him to lead this program into a new chapter in the CAA.”
Bryson has spent 18 seasons at Jumping Brook, and is currently in the role of PGA Director of Golf at the Neptune, NJ club. He has worked in several capacities there, including Membership Director, and supervises a staff of 20 that includes Assistant Golf Professionals,

“I am honored and excited to take over the Women’s Golf Program at Monmouth,” said Bryson. “We have a veteran team that is built to move into our first year in the CAA and I can’t wait to get started.”
Bryson has experience at Monmouth with the golf programs, spending time as a volunteer assistant coach with both the women’s and men’s programs in the recent past. Most notably, he worked alongside former men’s head coach Dennis Shea from 2013-2018 in a volunteer role.
A graduate of Methodist University in Fayetteville, NC, Bryson worked at several different golf clubs along the east coast before his time at Jumping Brook, including nearby Metedeconk National.
