Zeeland West Girls Golf - Fall of 2019


                Team tryouts will take place on Monday August 12 at Kris Tees Driving Range on 96th.  We will work on the driving range and putting green at 8:00 a.m. and will end at 9:30 a.m.  After the first try-out round players will be invited back for a second try-out on Tuesday August 13 at Kris Tees at the same time and procedure as the previous day.  We will play 9 holes at Crestview Golf Course in Borculo on Wednesday the 14th at 7:30 a.m.  Team selection will be made (if necessary) and a team meeting will take place following the try-out on Wednesday so players should arrange your schedules accordingly.  We should be done around 10:00 a.m.

                Please plan to be early to the try-out sessions.  We will begin working at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, so your promptness is appreciated.  You will need to bring your clubs, balls, tees, and golf or tennis shoes.  All players can either carry their clubs or use a pull cart for try-out rounds and the season.  Most golf courses have pull carts available.  There is no cost to the players for trying out for the team. 

Between 15-25 players will be selected to be part of the 2019 Team, which includes Varsity and Junior Varsity.  The number selected depends on scoring dispersion and team needs.

                To be eligible to try-out you must be in the ninth through twelfth grade and have completed all of the steps to compete through Final Forms. 

The following list of criteria will be used as part of the 2019 team selection process:

  • Attitude and conduct off the golf course
