James Madison High School
Tryouts for the 2017 coed varsity golf season will span THREE DAYS across two different courses.
On August 1st and 2nd tryouts will be at Herndon Centennial GC. (http://www.herndongolf.com/) AND August 3rd they will be at Reston National (https://www.restonnationalgc.com/ ). Tee times at Herndon will begin at 8 am on 8/1 and 8:40 am on 8/2. Tee times at Reston National will begin at 1:24 pm on 8/3. Golfers are expected to attend all three days of tryouts. Golfers are responsible for providing their own clubs and must wear golf course appropriate shirt and slacks or shorts. Golfers are required to walk and carry or push their own golf bags. Each golfer will pay in the club house for their round of golf and any range balls they would like for warm-up. At Herndon the walking rate for tryouts will be $27.00 and range tokes are $7.00 per token. At Reston National the walking rate will be $20 per golf (includes round and range balls).
Please arrive no less than 1 hour prior to the 1st scheduled tee time so we will have an opportunity to make sure your paperwork is in order and we can go over the rules that will govern tryouts. It is expected that each golfer has an understanding of the USGA Rules of Golf.
If you wish to tryout please contact Coach Smith by email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your spot at tryouts and so he can provide you with additional tryout requirements. Continue to check the website for announcements and updates related to tryouts. Any golfer who is planning on trying out must provide all required information to JMHS and notify Coach Smith of their intent to tryout prior to Friday, July 29, 2016.
