2022 Tryout Information
This is directed at current 7th grade and upcoming 6th grade golfers who are interested in trying out for the HJS Golf Team for the Fall of 2022.
Our home course is Pleasant Hill Golf Course.
The fee to play is $150 and must be paid by the first match. This can be paid through your EZ Pay account, in cash, or in a check made payable to Hopewell Junior Athletics.
Tryouts will be held on August 8 AND . Both dates are mandatory.
Check in for try outs will be at 11:30 a.m. with tee times starting at noon at Pleasant Hill Golf Course which is located at 6487 Hankins Rd, Liberty Township, OH 45044.
Cost for tryouts is $14 per tryout day which can be paid directly to the course.
USGA rules apply unless otherwise noted by the coach. Golfers are expected to carry their own bags or use a pull cart.
Each golfer will be given two tryouts of nine holes. Putting will also be “tested” during tryouts by having each golfer keep track of their putts as well as the overall score for each hole. (Please practice keeping track of not only your overall strokes for each hole but also the amount of putts for each hole). Each golfer needs to be at both days of tryouts (the 8th and 9th). The scores will be averaged to give each golfer a fair chance.
Everyone will tee off from the same forward tees regardless of gender. Each golfer is expected to arrive dressed appropriately for the golf course (no tank tops, no athletic shorts). Each golfer is expected to bring their own equipment including: clubs (no more than 14 in a bag), balls, tees, ball markers, water/snacks, rain gear (if needed), etc.
Late arrivals (after tryouts begin and golfers begin teeing off) will not be permitted to tee off.
One parent will be needed to accompany each foursome for score keeping. The golfers are expected to keep score as well; the parent scorekeeper is just a precaution. Parents who can stay to keep score for a group, you are thanked in advance! Please contact me about a week in advance if you are available to help keep score.
Transportation to and from Pleasant Hill is the responsibility of the parents or the car pooler. Each round takes about 2 hours, possibly 2 ½ hours. Golfers will text or call their ride when they have 2 holes left in the round.
Before trying out each golfer must present a physical form and an emergency medical from to the coach. All signatures and information must be complete and accurate for a tryout to be permitted. All paperwork can be handed into the coach at the time of tryouts.
After tryouts a team roster will be emailed to those golfers who made the team. If you did not make the team you will also receive a notice via email.
If you have any questions, please email, text, or call Courtney Jacobs, 260-706-1818.
