Cleveland Metroparks Golf is continuing an opportunity for a
team golf league for boys and girls in the sixth through eighth
grade. It is a great way for younger players to get a taste of
competition and coaching as they play.
Any organization can form a team, including schools, youth
groups, churches, or even a neighborhood. There will be six events
in this 9-hole tournament series scheduled for April 14 through May
19 on Saturday afternoons at 3:30 p.m. at Cleveland Metroparks golf
courses. The leagues will be held at Seneca, Shawnee Hills, Mastick
Woods, Little Met, and Washington golf courses.
A minimum of four players and a maximum of eight players are
permitted on each team with one or two adult coaches. A team score
will be created using the four lowest scores each time the team
plays, making it beneficial to have more than four players.
Coaches may just supervise or play along with the team (but
their scores do not count), whatever is appropriate for the team.
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, and then there will be separate
There is a $25 administrative fee for each team.
Golfers will pay greens fees upon arrival at the course of play
each week. Green fees vary at each course, but the junior discount
fee will be in effect after 2 p.m. on weekends. Pull carts can be
used or rented. Schools/organizations can field more than one team,
if there is interest. Teams are required to provide their own
nickname and uniforms.
