      2022-23 Golf Tryouts

    August 10, 2022

    2:45 pm

    Valencia Country Club

    August 11 & 12

    2:45 pm 

    Quail Creek Country Club

    • Tryouts will start the afternoon of the first day of school — August 10th.  We’ll tee off around 3:15 pm at Valencia Country Club and we’ll try to play as many holes as we can.  I will pass out rules and expectations of the team for boys and parents to read over, sign, and bring back the following day.  Abiding by team rules, as well as attending all practices and tournaments, is required for those who make the team. It’s a quick 2.5 month season and those who make it are expected to be present and work hard.  
    • Thursday 8/11 and Friday 8/12 will be right after school at Quail Creek Country Club.  Depending on weather, tryouts may go into the following week.  They will last as long as they need to, but they won't be on the weekends.  I will email out scoring average updates every night of tryouts — all holes played will count against par. The schedule will be Valencia on Wednesdays and Quail Creek for all other weekdays.  For those who make the team, tryout averages will be used to make the lineups for our first two tournaments.

    ✓    Practice rounds need to be scheduled on your own and are at the discretion of the host facility.  We will play over 6600 yards at tryouts to replicate tournament conditions during our season.

    ✓    Please prepare to walk the golf course up to 18 holes consecutive days during tryouts.  Bring all equipment necessary to play golf and plan accordingly!  Bring water, snacks, sunscreen and rain gear.  We will play in rain.  Push carts are allowed.

    ✓    Please contact the individual courses if you have questions about dress code.

    • Prior to tryouts, all paperwork and an updated physical needs to be submitted AND APPROVED in Athletic Clearance:  https://athleticclearance.fhsaahome.org/   Please don’t wait on this and create a headache for all involved.  Kids cannot tryout until they are fully cleared.
    • Team sizes range from 7-9 boys.  We do not have a JV team.  We have a competitive program and boys who make the team will all average under 43 for 9 holes.
    • Please email individually with any questions.  If you know of anyone interested in trying out, please feel free to pass along the details above and/or give them my personal email address: kcbenedict18@yahoo.com.

    All potential athletes must be cleared through Athletic Clearance prior to participation in golf.
