Learning Life Lessons on the Golf Course

TJ’s co-ed Upper School Golf team allow students to enjoy fresh air and exercise while learning a sport that can be played throughout life. Golf teaches students the value of hard work, teamwork, respect for others, personal responsibility, dedication, and sportsmanship.

No previous experience is required to join the TJ Golf team. Our inclusive program allows all students to test new capacities and discover new talents without fear of being cut from the team.

TJ’s Golf team is also highly competitive. In 2018, TJ finished 4th in the MSHSAA Class 1 Boys Golf State Championship. Over the years, TJ has also sent several individuals to the state tournament, including four All-State golfers.
