We practice at Prestwick and possible a few other courses in the Spring. The girls will need to have their own ride to and from the course. The girls do not need to have clubs in order to play. Girls must have a current physical dated AFTER April 1. Those that are 7-11 can practice in May. Sixth graders that are interested will start practicing in the summer after school gets out.

Thank you for your support.
