Former Oklahoma State Associate Athletic Director/Senior Woman Administrator and head women's golf coach Amy Weeks joined the Columbia women's golf program as a volunteer assistant coach in October of 2011 and was later named Head Women’s Golf Coach in August 2014.
Weeks begins her fourth year as head coach of Columbia’s women’s golf program in 2017-18. Last year, Weeks guided Columbia to its best-ever national ranking, two team tournament titles (Princeton Invitational, Yale Intercollegiate) and a third place finish at the Ivy League Championships. Columbia’s fall season proved to be the most successful in school history as the Lions placed either first or second in three of their four competitions. Two Lions—senior Jackie Chulya (First Team) and first-year Ridhima Dilawari (Second Team)—earned All-Ivy League honors, while Dilawari was named the program’s first-ever Ivy League Rookie of the Year.
In 2015-16, Weeks helped lead the Lions to five top-10 finishes, including a fourth-place finish at the Ivy League Championships. During that stretch, Weeks saw Chulya get crowned as both the Dinah Shore Trophy Award recipient and unanimous Ivy League Player of the Year honors after finishing the year with the second-best scoring average in program history (74.95). Chulya also set single-season program records in both par-4 scoring (4.16) and birdies made (62).
During her first season at the helm of the Columbia women's golf program, Weeks guided three Lions to All-Ivy League finishes. With a tie for fourth place, Chulya was a first team All-Ivy League selection, while Rachel Shi and Nancy Xu tied for 12th place to earn second team honors as Columbia finished third in the conference. Weeks also led the Lions to a team championship at the River Landing Classic, an event Chulya captured as an individual title, while Camilla Vik earned an individual championship at the Seton Hall Pirate Invitational. A total of four Columbia women's golfers were named WGCA All-American Scholars and the team also set a new program 54-hole scoring record at the River Landing Classic.
After moving to New York City with her family to start a private business in Brooklyn, Weeks joined the Lions as a volunteer assistant coach with the golf program in 2011. Prior to her move to New York, Weeks had served as the Associate Athletic Director and Senior Woman Administrator at Oklahoma State for seven years. In that role, she oversaw the Cowgirls' soccer, softball, women's track & field and women's cross country teams and assisted with OSU's athletic marketing and promotional directives.
Prior to her work as an administrator, Weeks served as Oklahoma State's head women's golf coach from 2000-04. During that span, she directed the Cowgirls to a second-place NCAA finish in 2004, three straight Big 12 Championships (2001, 2002, 2003) and a second place finish in 2004, 10 tournament titles, six runner-up finishes, the program’s first-ever No. 1 national ranking and four individual tournament titles. Weeks guided Oklahoma State to the NCAA Championship berths in each of her four seasons. The Cowgirls' second-place finish at the 2004 NCAA Championships proved to be their best team showing in program history up until that point. From 1997-2000, Weeks worked Oklahoma State's assistant women's golf coach under head coach Ann Pitts. She served as recruiting coordinator and practice coordinator in addition to her coaching duties.
As a collegiate player in the mid-1990s, Weeks was a dominant figure for the Oklahoma State women's golf program. She captured the 1995 Big Eight individual championship, while leading the Cowgirls to the team title and was a member of three Big Eight championship teams. Weeks also excelled as student, earning Academic All-Big Eight honors from 1994-96 and Academic All-Big 12 first team accolades in 1997. She also was named to the NGCA All-Scholar team in 1995. She concluded her career with two top-5 and four top-10 individual finishes.
An Abilene, Texas native and Wylie High School graduate, Weeks earned a bachelor’s degree in cultural and historical geography from Oklahoma State in 1998. She had a highly successful prep career that included winning back-to-back state Class 3A individual medalist honors as both a junior and senior.
