Range Tryout: All student-athletes who were not part of the team last year are required to participate in the driving range tryout. Golfers will be evaluated on over-all swing, consistency, accuracy with a variety of clubs and distances, chipping, and putting. Cuts will be made following the range tryout.
On-Course Tryout: Up to 20 total golfers will be invited to play in a 2-3 day (36 hole total) on course tryout. This tryout will take place at courses that will be announced on Sunday, February 12, 2017. The dates for the on-course tryout will be,Monday, February 13, Tuesday, February 14, Wednesday, February 15, and Thursday, February 16. All tee times will be at approximately 12:00 PM for 18-hole rounds and 3:00PM for 9-hole rounds. Golfers do NOT get to choose their try-out dates, times or groups, and failure to show up for your assigned tee time will result in an automatic cut from the program. Cuts will be made after the range tryout and following on-course tryouts.
Galleries are NOT permitted at the on-course tryouts. Parents, guardians, siblings are not to go be on the grounds of the Clubs where the tryouts are taking place other than to drop off or pick up their golfer.
