David Akers

David Akers has been part of the South Hardin golf programs for 21 years, leading the Tiger girls links the last 11 years. 

When David Akers first started teaching, he was encouraged to get a coaching endorsement to become more marketable. While student teaching in the Jesup school district, he assisted the boys’ golf coach and really enjoyed it – so Akers knew it was something he wanted to get into.

He’s been a mainstay at South Hardin High School, coaching golf for 21 years. Akers started out as the assistant for both boys and girls before taking over the Tiger girls’ program 11 years ago.

Akers on the course

After being in a car accident on the way to the State Golf Tournament in 2015, one of David Akers greatest accomplishments was getting back onto the course and coaching and playing again.
