Golf - First Girls'
2018 - 2019
Head Coach: Jane Toner
Westminster’s golf team competes against Founders League opponents, along with other western New England prep schools. Our home course is Hop Meadow Country Club, an outstanding private course that is less than a mile from campus (72, 6915 yards, 73.9/136, Geoffrey Cornish), which provides a thorough challenge to players of all ability levels. Matches are either 9-hole or 18-hole medal play competitions, which often involve more than one opposing school.
There are two major tournaments at the conclusion of each golf season, the nine-team Founders League championship and the 25-team Kingswood Invitational Tournament (KIT), which serves as the Western New England Championship. Since its return to the Westminster athletic program in the late 1980's, the golf team has consistently been in the upper tier of New England prep school programs, including victories in the 2005 Founders League and KIT tournaments.
Along with the team success, a significant number of graduates have gone on to play at the collegiate level, including Division I programs such as University of Richmond, University of Delaware, Davidson, Boston College, Tulane, Indiana University, and the University of Connecticut, along with Division III programs such as Skidmore, Washington & Lee, Franklin & Marshall, Williams, Colby, Tufts, Gettysburg, and Washington & Jefferson.
