Please carefully read the following information before submitting your tryout application.


Application DeadlineWednesday, August 25, 2018

For new players, both male and female, please outline your previous competitive golf performance and goals for the 2018 season. Please state why you would be a great fit for the team. A form is not being provided, so prospective players should choose how to put your best foot forward. Returning players need only inform us of your plans to return and your goals.

Submit via email to: david.mcbain@carleton.ca


Tryout Dates: Saturday, September 1 @ 1:00pm and Sunday, September 2 @ 1:00pm 2018

Cost: $226 including HST

There will be two rounds of medal play for the first tryout. Payment must be made in cash or by cheque September 1 at The Marshes Golf Club during check-in.


Tryout Date: Tuesday, September 4, 2018
Location: The Marshes Golf Club (Home of Ravens Golf)

Based on Stage 1 scores and other information gathered from your application and coach observations during the weekend event, up to twelve men and six women will be invited back to The Marshes Golf Club for Trackman and BodiTrak evaluation, and for constraint-based competition. Decisions about the team will be made and shared with those making the team by Friday, September 7.


Practices: Tuesday and Thursday throughout the varsity season
Time: 1-5 p.m.
Location: The Marshes Golf Club (home of Ravens Golf)

Please note that practices are mandatory. Prior to every tournament, the team will be holding “playdowns” on Friday mornings to see who will compete at the OUA events. Each team member is expected to play two 18-hole rounds of golf every weekend, either in competition or with those not competing. Please make sure that your class schedule is set accordingly, and that if there are unavoidable conflicts, you discuss your absences with your professors as soon as you make the team.
