Arrowhead Union High School District

The Arrowhead Boys Golf Program is arguably THE most succesful boys golf program in the state, having won 7 State Championships overall, including 6 of the last 9 WIAA State Championships since 2007--01', 07', 08', '09, '10, '12 and '15!  The Boys Golf Team consists of squads at the Varsity, Varsity Reserve, Junior Varsity, and Freshmen levels.  Any boy from freshman through senior is eligible to try out for the various teams.  The program carries approximately 30 to 36 boys for all levels.  Try-outs are at the end of March.  Golfers will have at least two, 9-hole rounds before cuts are made. The courses used for tryouts are:  Chenequa (Varsity Reserve, and Varsity) and Ironwood (JV and Freshmen).  Players are expected to pay for their greens fees for try-outs.  Players provide their own clubs.

There will be two organizational meetings in early and Mid-March for any interested boys   Date, time, and location of each organizational meeting will be posted throughout school and in the Lake Country Reporter as well as announced over the school P.A.

The season begins late March with the first competitions scheduled approximately two weeks after.  The season ends Mid-May for Freshmen, JV, and VR players, and at the end of May for Varsity, unless Varsity qualifies for the state tournament--generally the first full week of June.  During this period, no player is allowed to play in more than fifteen (15) competitions.

Our teams compete in the Classic-8 Conference, as well as in various non-conference invitationals.  Players are expected to be present at every practice, with focus and passion for the game.  The goal of each player is to reach his potential.  When called upon, players must be available to play each event.  Remember that high school golf is a team game with each member responsible to other team members. Most golf meets are played either by 5 players, with 4 scores counting, or 4 players with all scores counting.

Players are expected to obey the rules of golf as well as etiquette.  Cheating, swearing, throwing clubs, inappropriate dress, and insincerity will not be tolerated.   The quality of play for the various levels of the Arrowhead program is generally as follows:  the varsity usually plays to an 8 handicap or less, the junior varsity to a 13 handicap, and the freshman to a 20 handicap. 

To play competitive interscholastic golf, all players need to improve their games by participating in as many golf functions as possible.  There are summer tours and tournaments and a wide variety of golf courses and ranges on which to practice.  We encourage the use of indoor practice facilities and professional instruction to work on the basic fundamentals of the golf swing.
