One word of caution - watch out for the rules nazis. These are not people who believe in following the rules, but instead these are people who are looking at everything you do as an opportunity to gain a few strokes advantage for themselves. The worst rules nazis are the people who think they know the rules but really don't. On the amateur tours, about one in ten people are rules nazis. Hopefully in college this is not the case. Just make sure going in that you know the rules, or ask for help if you don't.
Just don't get sucked in by this.

Competing on an unfamiliar course vs a casual round on the same course... competition round is generally worse.

I play the guitar and bass to a grade 8 standard (scratch in terms of golf lol) and drums at grade 7 (low handicap lol) and whenver i play a gig now i still get a bit nervous and miss a note or what ever and its the same with golf, you mite miss a couple of putts or hook one here and there... Back in the day when i did my first couple of gigs i didnt know how to handle myself but now its second nature...
When im practicing by myself ill play little solos or hit shots that i would never do playin in comp or at a gig but thats how it is becuase your more relaxed when theres no preassure... where as iv gone out in comps and ripped up the course and played gigs perfect by feeding off the preasure...
I think after a while you will mature but to start with dont be downhearted if you shoot 30 over! Just keep at it and it will come! I can recommend Dr Bob Rotellas books, great for improving your play in comps... Iv been playing shocking lately, read his book, went out and shot the best round of the year!
