Pelican golfers junior Jack Livingstone and senior Maddie Hong have been chosen to play for the Connecticut Junior Professional Golfers Association at the Remy Cup on September 16 at the Rhode Island Country Club in Barrington, R.I.
The girls golf program is built on character and prides itself on skill development, mental preparation, knowledge of the rules, and fostering a love of the game. Our players have a passion for golf and strive to realize their academic, athletic, and personal potential. We value that the strong caliber of players in our program make daily practices and matches as competitive as possible to raise the collective level of play.
Each Spring, our team plays nine-hole matches against other prep schools around Western New England and competes in separate Founder’s League and New England championship events. In the spring of 2018, we earned a 13-3 match record and were crowned New England Champions by virtue of winning the Pippy O’Connor Independent School Girl’s Golf Classic. We play a competitive schedule at outstanding golf venues in New England, including the The Cranwell Resort, Greenwich Country Club, Roundhill Country Club, Watertown Golf Club, and our home course, Tumble Brook Country Club, a remarkable 27-hole private golf club in Bloomfield, CT.
In addition to the privilege of playing Tumble Brook C.C., Loomis Chaffee has an indoor practice facility, for use during periods of inclement weather to hone fundamental skills.
There is so much to share about the culture of our team and the manner in which we prepare for peak performance. Please feel free to contact Coach O’Donnell directly to learn more.
