Cleveland Metroparks is again offering an opportunity for boys and girls in the 6th through 8th grades to participate in team golf competition. Any organization, including schools, youth groups, churches, or even a neighborhood, may form a team.
Team competition will take place on Saturday afternoon’s beginning at 3:00pm over a six week period between April 15 and May 20. Each weekly competition will play nine holes of golf. The league will utilize all of the Cleveland Metroparks nine hole golf courses during the season.
Teams will consist of four (4) to ten (10) players with one (1) or two (2) adult coaches. A team score will be calculated using the 4 lowest scores each week. Age appropriate rules will be applied to the matches. Boys and girls will compete together unless there are sufficient numbers of teams of both genders to allow for separate competitions.
Competition matches will begin on April 15, it is best for teams to play several practice rounds before this date. Some minimal skills and golf knowledge regarding rules, scoring, and etiquette are recommended but one of the goals of the league to increase the players knowledge in all of these areas to prepare them to be able to play high school golf. This competition is intended to be fun! Teams are encouraged to create a nickname and creative uniform, keeping them simple and inexpensive (i.e. red cap navy blue shirt) or to be as elaborate as you like.
Schools and organizations may field more than one team if there is interest. A minimum of four players and a maximum of ten players are needed/permitted on each team. Golfers will pay green fees each week at the course and pull carts may be used or rented. There is a $10 per player entry fee for each team for the season due with your team registration. This will cover the cost of the year end banquet and awards for the league champions. Please contact me if you have any questions or to sign up your team. We look forward to this league expanding in 2017
