Dear Parents and Athletes,
My name is Michael Ward and I am the Mead High School golf coach. I’m extremely honored and excited to be a part of the inaugural season for Maverick Golf. Finally, our golfers will have the opportunity to represent their school and community. I believe this will have a positive impact on our student/athletes and the Mead community as a whole.
Golf is a sport for life. It is also a game of discipline. Golf is very competitive at both the individual and team levels. It is a challenge for both the mind and body, and High School golf offers the athlete the chance to learn about both individual and team competitions. Players are expected to encourage each other and develop a sense of team. Golf is a great game at the individual level, but the chance to play at the team level is a very special opportunity.
General Information
**All registration forms can be found on the Mead High website under the Pay Online link. Physicals and all forms must be filled out in order for your son to tryout.
Home Course – Saddleback Golf Course
Try-outs – August 7-9 10:00am – 12:00pm

Practice and Tournament Schedules are attached but can change due to tournaments being added.
1. Friday practices are optional due to the amount of space available on the course. Athletes will still have access to the driving range, chipping and putting greens.
2. JV players will practice and have access to practice facilities at Saddleback when a Varsity match is being played at another location.

Varsity vs Junior Varsity
Varsity and JV rosters will be determined by their combined qualifying scores on the two 9 hole rounds leading up to next tournament. The 5 players with the lowest scores will be varsity and the remainder will be junior varsity.

Expectations
1. Athletes are expected to attend all practices and matches. If a student must miss a practice or a match, please communicate via email or phone ASAP. Players must be at practice by 3:00pm.
2. Athletes are expected to wear collared shirts and kakis for all practices. Jeans, jean shorts and athletic shorts are not allowed. Golf hats should be worn with the bill forward. Team shirts to be worn during matches have been ordered and will be handed out when they arrive.
3. Athletes are expected to be respectful to employees, patrons, and others while at Saddleback and when visiting other golf courses.
Transportation
1. Athletes are responsible for their own transportation to and from Saddleback Golf Course for practices and home matches.
2. Transportation by bus, mini bus, or suburban to other courses will be provided by the school district.
Equipment
1. Players must provide their own clubs, balls, and tees. Bags have been ordered and will be provided. Optional equipment suggestions include: rain gear, umbrella, sunscreen, lip balm, glove, Band-Aids, water bottle, rule book, high protein snacks and divot repair tool.
2. Players should also have soft spiked golf shoes.
Golf Etiquette
For the game to be enjoyed, each player participates in accordance with a code of decent and friendly conduct, which includes safe and fast play, proper care of the golf course, and basic courtesy. Use this summary as a guideline: Care of the course:
1. Rake all bunkers. Replace all divots. Don’t make divots with practice swings
2. On greens, repair all ball marks. Repair spike marks on the greens after finishing play. Be careful walking on the greens, especially near the hole.
3. Leave the course, particularly the greens, in the condition you would like to find them.
Thank you,

Michael Ward
