Coleman Houk was named head men's golf coach in January 2020. He was the KCAC Individual Champion in 2018-19.

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.

In the final event of the shortened spring 2020 season, Kansas Wesleyan University shot a wind-blown 328-321-339 and tied for 12th, nine strokes out of 11th in the San Antonio Shoot-Out at TPC San Antonio in San Antonio, Tex.  Wayland Baptist recorded a +29 893 total to win by 36 strokes over runner-up Texas Wesleyan which finished +65. Morningside, Houston-Victoria and Truett-McConnell filled out the top five in the 15-team tournament. The course was par 72, measuring 6,701 yards and with a tough set-up plus wind, produced an average 18-hole score of 82.0 strokes. Winds were so strong during the third round that the scoring average jumped to 84.9 strokes.

The Coyotes' Troy Watson (78-79-76=233) finished 15th and Logan Vacca (80-76-94=250) tied for 58th.

Kansas Wesleyan broke 300 twice and finished 13th at the 2019 NAIA Championship. KWU posted the low score in three of five rounds and easily won the 2019 Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC) Championship.

Kansas Wesleyan finished second in the 2018 Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship, sixth in 2017, fifth in 2016, third in 2015, fifth in 2014, fourth in 2013, third in 2012,  fifth in 2011, and seventh in 2009.
