Following a year hiatus from collegiate coaching, Art Salvesen returned to the University of Redlands as the head women's golf coach in July of 2010. He originally served as the head men's golf coach from 2000 to 2009, guiding the Maroon and Gray to eight NCAA appearances and four national runner-up finishes.
During his previous stint with the Bulldogs, he was named the NCAA Division III West Regional Coach of the Year on three occasions and coached numerous All-America honorees as well as academically distinguished golfers.
From 2000-2006, Salvesen guided the Bulldogs to a 37-5 Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) record, including back-to-back conference crowns in 2002 and 2003, and again in 2005 and 2006.
During the 2004 NCAA Championships, the Maroon and Gray enjoyed the opportunity to host the prestigious event at the PGA Southern California Golf Club at Oak Valley.
Salvesen began his tenure at the University of Redlands after eight years as the Redlands High School golf coach, when he compiled an overall record of 119-13. Also, Salvesen led his team to the CIF finals each of his last four years with the Terriers.
In his spare time, Salvesen enjoys traveling to Montana for fly-fishing and spending time with his family. This 1975 graduate of the University of Redlands currently resides with his wife, Margie Cole, in Redlands.
