Golf team tryouts will be early in the week of July 29 at Horse Golf Course. Tryouts will begin sometime between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. depending on the golfer’s set tee time. Golfers will be assigned a tee time closer to the tryout dates. Golfers who wish to tryout must participate in both days of tryouts.
Over the summer, golfers who plan on attending tryouts must participate in at least three verified golf tournament rounds between Saturday, May 25 and Saturday, July 27 in order to be eligible. Eligible tournaments must be at least 18 holes, played as an individual medalist, and be apart of an organized junior tourer event. Multi-day tournaments will count as one round per day towards the three required. Scramble, best ball, partner, or member guest tournaments do not count towards rounds. A golfer can automatically qualify for the team by completing five or more verified tournament rounds over the summer. Once a golfer is eligible to tryout, they will receive a confirmation email. A follow-up email will be sent to the golfer once they have met the qualification requirements to make the team.
In order to tryout each golfer must have a completed athletic participation packet and physical on file, meet all UIL Academic Eligibility Requirements, complete the minimum amount of verified tournament rounds over the summer, and use their own golf clubs and equipment. Each golfer must dress in appropriate golf attire (collared shirts; denim jeans/shorts are not allowed), pay green fees for each day of tryouts (approximately $20 each day), and supply personal transportation to practices and local tournaments if a golfer surpasses tryouts.
Results of each completed tournament over the summer must be reported back to Russell Fuqua at Russell.Fuqua@kellerisd.net with the subject line Summer Golf Tournament.
The following is required in the text of the email:
- Golfer’s first and last name
- Date and location of the event
- Host organization of the event
- Final round score (Each day’s score if more than 18 holes are played.)
If the tournament cannot be verified, it will not count towards tryout eligibility or team qualification.
