The LMS Golf Club is in place to help kids determine their desire to play the great game of golf. Learning the basic swing and how to play is what the focus will be on each week. We are looking to finding the golfer that wants to eventually move up and be a member of the LHS Varsity Golf Team one day. With that in mind, Loganville Middle School is partnering with the South Gwinnett Athletic Association for middle school golf.
The Middle School Golf League is organized with parents registering through the South Gwinnett Athletic Association. Players are assigned teams based on middle school attendance and receive golf shirts with their middle school or feeder high school colors.
During the first weeks beginning golfers will spend more time becoming more proficient at ball striking and understanding golf rules and etiquette. And then take that knowledge onto the golf course. Repeat Middle School Golf League players or the more advanced junior golfer will begin play as team members in the best ball “Lauderdale” format. Players play from forward or junior tees based on ability.
League play and/or clinics will be held on Sundays, normally at 4 pm. The season officially begins with a clinic for everyone on August 26 conducted by our golf course professionals, a beginner orientation or practice round for advanced or returning players, four weeks of team competition best ball play including during one week “High School Day” where high school team golfers are invited to play along with their cluster middle school teams, a week of individual stroke play and the season culminates on October 28 with a Drive, Chip and Putt competition and the MSGL Awards Party.
Each team has a volunteer team “Marshall” that is responsible for team lineups and supervises the play on the course. Parents are welcome to walk or ride carts along the course as spectators but must remain on the cart paths.
The host courses for this season are Snellville’s Summit Chase Country Club and Country Club of Gwinnett, Lawrenceville’s Collins Hill Golf Course and Loganville’s Cedar Lake Golf Course. Teams play on all four courses during the season.
Registration will be limited to the first 100 registering and/or closes August 20. Parents can register their Middle School players by going to the Middle School Golf League website at: Middle School Golf. A parent orientation will be held prior to the season beginning with more detailed information about the season, uniform sizing, information about golf equipment and clubs and a Q&A session with League Director Les Witmer and SGAA ‘s Tim Gaines.
Prior to that for more information you may contact MSGL Director Les Witmer at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
