Varsity Golf

varsity golf at The Haverford School

 

Overview

The Haverford School golf team is considerably one of the best in the state. The golf team competes in the Inter-Academic League, this is one of the oldest interscholastic leagues in the country. The other teams in the league are: Episcopal Academy, Germantown Academy, Malvern Prep, Penn Charter, and Springside Chestnut Hill Academy.

Every team has their home course, those courses are: Haverford - Gulph Mills, Episcopal - Merion West, Germantown - Bluestone, Malvern - Applebrook/Waynesboro, Penn Charter - Huntingdon Valley, SCHA- Sunnybrook.

Unlike traditional golf, the golfers only play nine holes, and count the top six scores of the team. The varsity team consists of 12 players, eight of which play at each match. The decision process for the varsity team, unlike other sports, does not include tryouts. The coaches look at how the athletes play over the summer, on their own. The Coaches watch them closely over the summer and decide if they have what it takes to be apart of the top twelve, and in the top eight.

Meet the Coach
