The Grand County High School boy’s golf team is off to an excellent start for the 2013 season, taking first place in two region tournaments – on Aug. 13 in Spanish Fork and Aug. 20 in Sterling – against four other teams from Region 15.

The Red Devil golfers were also scheduled to host a tournament at the Moab Golf course on Tuesday, Aug. 27.

“Right now, with the way the [boys] are playing, I have a lot of confidence in being able to stay ahead the next few tournaments.” said head coach Aaron Woodard. 

The boys golf team consists of 14 players from various grades at GCHS, most of them juniors and seniors. 

“We have a qualifier every week at our golf course,” said Woodard. “The six lowest scores get to go to tournaments.” 

Out of those six qualifying scores, the four lowest count toward the team’s region total, he said. The team with the lowest score total at the end of the season takes first place in the region.

The GCHS boy’s golf team won the region title in 2012, then went on to take third place at the state tournament.

“We’ve got a strong team. We’re doing really well,” Woodard said.

The golfers will play in several more tournaments this fall. The Region 15 championship competition is scheduled for Oct. 1 at the Hideout golf course in Monticello.

The state golf tournament is scheduled for Oct. 9-10 in Sterling.
