Golf - First Boys'
2018 - 2019
Head Coach: Gregory Marco
In his 29th season as Head Coach, Greg Marco leads the Westminster 1st Boys' Golf team as they compete against Founders League opponents, along with other western New England prep schools. The team's home course is Hop Meadow Country Club, an outstanding private course designed by renowned architect Geoffrey Cornish (Par 72, 6915 yards, 73.9/136). Hop Meadow CC is less than two miles from campus, and provides a thorough challenge to players of all ability levels. Competitive matches are either 9-hole or 18-hole medal play competitions, which typically involve multiple opponents.
There are four major tournaments each golf season, the 10-team Suffield Invitational, the 12-team Western New England Invitational, the 9-team Founders League championship, and the 23-team Kingswood Invitational Tournament (KIT). 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. Over the past five seasons, the 1st Boys' Golf team has compiled a very impressive regular season record of 85-26-2.
Along with the team success, a significant number of recent graduates have gone on to play at the collegiate level, including Division I programs such as Boston College, UCONN, Davidson, Delaware, Indiana, Northwestern, Richmond, and Tulane, along with Division III programs such as Colby, F&M, Gettysburg, Kenyon, Middlebury, Skidmore, Tufts, Washington & Jefferson, and Washington & Lee.
