Since March 2, the OHS Vikings golf team has had three matches. One at Friday Harbor, at La Conner and this week golfers enjoyed a sunny day at Lopez. Mara Nutt and Luke Bronn are returning Viking golfers. The rest of the team is new to golf and very enthusiastic and eager to learn the game. As captains, Nutt and Bronn are busy working on their own game and also helping the team learn the rules of the game.

For the next few weeks the players will be working on their golf skills, concentrating on their short game. They will get to play on other courses besides their home course.  By May, the goal is to score well at the league tournament and in the end qualify for the state playoffs.

We want to thank Justin Taylor and his family for their generosity in letting the Viking golfers play everyday at the Orcas Island Golf Course.

Thanks also goes out to Pete Huey and George Riddle for their golf ball and golf club donations.
