Girls Golf- Sports

Courtney Ribar

This article is for girls that are interested in being a part of the first girls’ golf team at Lakewood High School. There are two girls that played golf last year on the boy’s team, but they feel that playing against girls may help them better prepare for the tournaments since they play against girls in them.

If you don’t have experience but are interested then you should still try out.  It would be a fun season and you get to play free golf everyday. Who doesn’t love free golf? Golf is a single person sport but with team scoring the top four scores count when scoring for matches. So we need at least four girls to have a team but can have six play in a match. This is open to any girl that will be at the high school next year. We are really hoping to get underclassmen so that a girls team can go on for a while.

Golf is a sport that takes practice the more you practice the better you get just like any other sport. Golf is a muscle memory so going to the driving range some days instead of the course is a good thing. If you want to play golf next season really work on it in the spring and summer, try to play or go to the driving range at least once a week. we really hope to see girls come and try out next season this could be exciting stuff for Lakewood High School. Hope to see you in August.
