2017 - 2018
Head Coach: Bo Cramer
The New Hampton Varsity Golf team competes in the spring season against other Lakes Region schools. During the preseason, while we wait for the snow to melt, the team practices on our very own indoor simulator where the team can play on various PGA courses. Using this and recording each golfer hit the ball, golfers on the team analyze their swings, identify faults in their mechanics, and perform various drills to overcome these flaws. In addition the team has workout routines, stretching exercises, and matted areas to works on their putting skills.
Once the weather is warm, the team is fortunate to practice and play home matches at Laconia Country Club. The course is among the finest in New Hampshire and the facilities are extraordinarily well maintained. At Laconia the players have a wide array of practices to use, including the driving range, putting green, chipping green, and “Old Seven,” a short hole no longer used on the main course, but maintained for advanced players to work on their approach game.
The team competes in match play and typically has matches on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Our top six golfers compete in the matches and an ongoing weekly ranking system determines where each player will be placed for the next upcoming match. Our season culminates with a Lakes Region Championship Tournament which is generally held at Lake Sunapee Country Club. Skill development, sportsmanship, and golf etiquette are all important aspects of the program and stressed throughout the season.
