Eric Restrepo begins his second year as a volunteer assistant coach for his alma mater and former coach, providing assistance in all facets of the UC Davis men's golf program.
A 2005 graduate of UC Davis and Davis native, Restrepo was a four-year starter on the Aggie men's golf team, playing under the tutelage of current head coach Cy Williams.
Restrepo's impact on the Aggie men's golf program was immediate as he garnered California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Freshman of the Year honors as well as a spot on the All-CCAA first team in his debut season in 2001-02. Additionally, he was named to the Softspikes National All-Freshman team.
His success continued on into his sophomore campaign where he won his first collegiate tournament with a 1-under 215 at the Sacramento State Invitational and placed in the top 10 of four other tournaments, including the NCAA West Regional where he tied for seventh. He repeated as a All-CCAA first team honoree and was an All-West Region first team selection. He capped off a stellar season with a selection as an honorable mention All-American.
Restrepo twice competed at the NCAA Div. II Championships as part of the Aggie squads that advanced in 2002 and 2003.
Upon graduating, Restrepo stayed connected to the game by coaching with The First Tee, a program that works to impact the lives of young people, build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. He has coached at The First Tee locations in San Jose and Sacramento.
Restrepo and his wife Alexandra live in Davis with their son Jeremy. Together, they own and operate Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt.
