Preseason

Summer 2023

Dear Prospective Golfers:

I hope you all have great summers and that you manage to play a little golf.  Coach St. George is working as my assistant again this year.  Together, we hope to make this a fun, safe, and winning golf season. The following provides information on the team’s structure, including tryout dates for Varsity.

Varsity

The Varsity squad is the competition squad.  We practice/play home matches at Pine Meadows Golf in Lexington – we also play matches on the road at a variety of golf courses. Varsity mostly plays golf four days a week, Monday-Thursday, but we may play an occasional Friday match.  Bus transportation is provided to Pine Meadows.  Unless driving, students need to be picked up at Pine Meadows at the end of all practices/home matches.  Bus transportation to and from road matches is provided.  We sometimes get back from road matches in time for golfers to take the sports buses, but parents should plan to pick up golfers at Minuteman just in case. 

Junior Varsity

The JV squad does not play matches.  Development of golf skills are focused on to move golfers to Varsity.  JV practices twice a week (days to be determined) at Stone Meadow Golf in Lexington, which has a driving range and a small beginner’s golf course.  Bus transportation is provided to and from Stone Meadow, and all JV golfers return in time to take the sports buses.

Tryouts

Tryouts begin at Stone Meadow Golf in Lexington on Friday, August 18th and Monday, August 21st both from 2PM-4PM.  Golfers need not stay the entire time and only need to attend one date.  We will assess golf swings to make early determinations as to whether golfers will begin the year on JV or whether they will continue trying out for Varsity.  Please contact me if you cannot make either date.

If asked to continue trying out for Varsity, golfers will shift to Pine Meadows Golf for additional tryouts on Tuesday, August 22nd through Thursday, August 24th.  Golfers asked to attend these tryouts should plan to arrive at Pine Meadows golf at 2:30PM and plan to be at the course till 5:30PM, as we will be playing a nine-hole round of golf. 

All athletes need a recent (within one year) physical to participate in high school sports.  Students must submit a copy of the physical.  The permission form signed by your parent/guardian is also required before athletes are allowed to participate – YOU MUST COMPLETE THE ONLINE REGISTRATION, THE CONCUSSION TEST AND SUBMIT A RECENT PHYSICAL ASAP!   Follow this link to register.

Please do not let any of the above intimidate you in any way – we really are a fun group that has golfers of all abilities.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me.  We look forward to working with you all in the fall!

Best,
