Grant Horvat started playing golf at a young age, beginning at South Fork High School. Competing for the Bulldogs, he was a First-Team All-Area selection in 2015 and 2016.

His journey in golf continued at Palm Beach Atlantic University, where during his junior season, he posted a season-low round of 68 on October 1 at the Griffin Invitational.

This event also marked his top finish of the year, securing a tie for fifth place overall.

In his senior season, Horvat competed in three events for the Sailfish. The 2019-20 GCAA All-American Scholar made a significant impact by tying for the school’s record-best finish at the SSC Tournament.
