R.M.S. Golf is open to 6th, 7t,h and 8th grade boys and girls of all levels of experience from beginners to experienced golfers. We typically have between 30 and 40 golfers. We start practice with a meeting on April 1st in my classroom, Room D222. We will go over the rules that day, hand out a parent letter and a calendar, and make an optional clothing order available for our golfers. Many golfers choose to order a polo shirt to wear at meets with khaki pants, but it is not required.
We typically practice every day once the weather gets nice enough for us to be outside, but we often just practice 3 days per week while we are inside. We often spend Tuesdays and Thursdays in the field north of the school working on our swings and skills, but on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, we are usually able to use Holes 10-14 of River Oaks Golf Course in order to play as many holes as time allows. Pick-up from practice is 4:30 while inside, 5:00 throughout most of April, and 4:45 in May.
All of our golfers have opportunities for competitive play in our Intramural Meet and our R.M.S. Golf Invitational, both of which are held at River Oaks. Golfers typically get to travel to one additional meet during the season. Additional meets are often open to 3-6 boys or girls per meet, so golfers earn those spots through their attendance and low-round scores in practices and our home events.
We are looking forward to a great season with our middle school golfers!
