Randy Syring was named the men's and women's golf head coach at Kansas Wesleyan in June 2017. He has been a Class A Head Golf Professional at the Salina Country Club since 1988.

The KCAC (Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference) Championship is determined by total score over 108 holes. 54 holes are played in March, and 54 are played in April with the low total declared champion.

Kansas Wesleyan broke 300 twice and finished 13th at the 2019 NAIA Championship at Las Sendas Golf Club in Mesa, Ariz. Texas Wesleyan won the NAIA title for the seventh time in school history, and first since 1999, defeating runner-up Coastal Georgia by nine strokes. Rounding out the top five were Oklahoma City in third, Keiser University in fourth and South Carolina Beaufort and British Columbia tied for fifth.

The NAIA medalist was Coastal Georgia's Mark Johnson, who won a three-man playoff after shooting a 2-over 286. Playing in windy conditions, the course was par 71, measuring 6,925 yards and produced an average 18-hole score of 77.6 strokes.

Ben Hadden tied for fourth (68-70-73-76=287) and Coleman Houk tied for 33rd (73-79-74-72=298).

Kansas Wesleyan posted the low score in three of five rounds and easily won the 2019 Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC) Championship. The tournament was contested over 108 holes, 36 at Crestview Country Club (6,559 yards, par 72 ) in Wichita, Kan., and the final 54 at at Buffalo Dunes Golf Club (6,891 yards, par 72) in Garden City, Kan. Kansas Wesleyan won its first KCAC title in more than a decade, scoring a 22-stroke win over runner-up Sterling. Oklahoma Wesleyan placed third among nine schools.
