Christopher Hall was elevated to head men's
golf coach at Sacramento State during the spring of 2011. Hall had
been an assistant with the team since being hired by the Hornets in
August of 2010.
Hall made an immediate impact as head coach, guiding the Hornets to a second place finish at the America Sky Championships during his first season. The following year, Sacramento State won by an amazing 42 strokes and earned the school's first NCAA Div. I Regional apearance.
In 2012, Hall coached Ryan Williams and Jordan Weir to the NCAA Pullman Regional where both qualified as individuals. Williams set the school single-season scoring record (72.69) during the year and was named the school's Male Student-Athlete of the Year as well as the American Sky Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Weir was the medalist at the America Sky Tournament.
That same season, Hall organized the Sacramento State Invitational at Valley Hi Country Club. The tournament brought in 14 teams from around the nation for the largest Div. I field in school history.
"The Invitational is a great event to get the community involved and will be a great avenue for our alumni to stay connected to the program," Hall said.
Several former Sacramento State golfers who were coached by Hall are currently playing on mini tours including Wililams, Grant and Cameron Rappleye and Jake Johnson.
Prior to coming to Sacramento State, Hall served as the volunteer assistant coach at Fresno State for the past two seasons. While with the Bulldogs, he helped guide Hali Coppin to an individual Western Athletic Conference title and also an appearance at the Women's U.S. Open Qualifier.
Along with his coaching duties, Hall also spent time with members of the men's and women's golf team and swimming and diving as a sport psychologist.
A native of Murphys, Calif., Hall played collegiately at Butte and Cabrillo junior colleges before transferring to Chico State. He earned his bachelor's degree in kinesiology from Chico State and later added a master's in sports psychology from Fresno State.
He and his wife, Shannon, reside in Sacramento with their son Wyatt.
