Tryout and Season Info

First tee time each day will be at approximately 3:00PM and each qualifying round will be 9 holes.  All players will have the opportunity to arrive prior to the first tee time and use range and practice greens to prepare for that day’s round. Players need to bring their own clubs, golf balls and water. Proper golf attire must be worn at all times. Depending on the number of players attempting to make the team, cuts to the qualifying field may be made each day.

Also needed prior to the first qualifying round will be current physical and consent forms, which can be completed online via www.athleticclearance.com.  There is also a “register” link on the Nease Athletics site that has links and explains the entire process.  Athletes do not turn in paper copies of anything with the exception of the GA4 transfer form IF they’re coming from another school.  This process MUST be completed prior to the start of qualifying.  

Anyone qualifying for the team will be required to play a team fee of $200, which includes uniform and hat, transportation to away matches, banquet dinner at the end of the year, and team awards. If a team member does not have access to a suitable facility to practice and play, special pricing is offered by the Palencia Club for their junior golf membership.  

The competitive season will run from August 10 through October.  Home and away matches will be scheduled to begin from 3:00PM – 4:00PM and may require early release from classes. The schedule will consist of approximately 16 matches/tournaments, plus District Championship, Regional Championship and State Championship. A schedule will be published prior to the start of the season.

If you plan on qualifying for the team, please complete the following information sheet and provide to Coach Horner via email no later than July 15.
