2019 Lady Wolves - Golf Information

General Information

No experience, no problem!  The Cedarcrest Golf Team strives to develop lifelong enjoyment of golf regardless of a player's starting skill level. While having previous golf knowledge and skill is a large advantage, experience is not necessary to learn, enjoy, and compete in this wonderful game.

In the upcoming 2018 season, we will have a large range of experience and abilities returning, from players who just picked up a club for the first time last year, to players looking to make their first state tournament. We had a lot of new players out ther last year that gained valuable experience.  This makes it a great time to join as there will be a good strong varsity core for leadership and competition, and a  lot of room to build for success in future years.  If joining a quality, successful, and fun sport at Cedarcrest would interest you, keep reading!

Practices well be held at Blue Heron Golf Course (formerly Carnation GC).  Practice will be held from 3pm - about  5pm Monday thru Thursday.   Friday practices are directed around the school schedule with an emphasis on getting experienced players out and playing on the course.  A general schedule will be handed out at our first day meeting on  Monday, February 25, 2019.  Each player is expected to have their own set of clubs.  If this will be a problem, please speak with the coaches and we'll work something out.  Other equipment needs and practice requirements will be discussed at the first practice.  Transportation to the Blue Heron is not provided by the school, however there is a Riverview bus route from CHS that passes the course.  We know transportation is often a hurdle for younger players, and we will do our best to try to accomodate and help all players to attend practice.

Additional information is available on our FAQ's Document

If you have any questions about the team, season, or program in general, please ask.  Stop by and visit Coach McLaughlin in Portable 7 or email me at mclaughlind@rsd407.org  We hope to see you out there on the first day of practice :)

2018 Season in Review

On it's way!!!


Hope to see new golfers at the preseason meeting on January 31st, 2018 in Portable 7


What you can do out of season!

1) Keep yourself fit - golf IS an athletic activity.  If
    you are more active and athletic, you will likely be
    a better golfer

2) Don't let you clubs collect dust - whether it be just
    going to practice range, or playing a full round, you
    need to get out at least once every two weeks if
    you want to keep your skills during the winter.

3) Putt putt putt - on carpet, indoors, just make sure
    nothing breakable is around.  Give yourself a target
    and work on a good putting stroke.  Remember
    putting is often 30-40% of your score.

4) Watch golf on tv - although those players are really
    really really good, simply watching golf can help you
    pick up a lot of the intricacies of the game, mostly
    that not every shot is perfect :)

2014 Season in Review

June 1 - The 2014 season far exceded expectations from the beginning of the year.   Returning only 4 players and no underclassmen, we really were unsure what kind of team would form.  3 eager freshmen joined the team, and they showed a strong desire to learn the game and improve quickly.   Within just a few weeks, those girls were playing competitive golf and representing Cedarcrest in their first official matches.

By the end of the season, Cedarcrest was in the running for another Cascade Conference Title.   The team did finish 2nd in league, but also was the only team to defeat eventual champion Kings, and the only team to do so in previous three years.  After a great team showing at districts.  3 golfers from Cedarcrest advanced to the state tournament, for only the second time in the history of the program.  Caitlin Brenner became the 1st three time state qualifier for Cedarcrest Girls Golf.  Juniors Amanda Fairbanks, and Bella LaBate also came along to the tournament in Spanaway.  Unfortunately both Caitlin and Bella just missed qualifying for Day 2 of the tournament, but they all represented Cedarcrest proudly..

With some new golfers joining this season, the 2015 season looks to be one of some strong senior golfers and some others that are ready to take the next big step in competitive golf.  2015 looks to be a very exciting season!!

More History and Season Reviews coming soon...

2012 Season in Review

June 1 - 2012 was definately the start of rebuilding the girls golf program.  While Cedarcrest was home to the 2012 individual league champion Courtney Hoekstra, all other golfers combined had only 8 matches of varsity experience.  Thankfully, those golfers were all young and were the start of a great core for the future.

By the end of the season, Cedarcrest was scoring on level with the other teams in the Cascade Conference.  3 golfers from Cedarcrest advanced to the 2nd day of the District 1 tournament.  Caitlin Brenner became the 1st sophomore in the last decade (and perhaps Cedarcrest Girls Golf history) to qualify for the state tournament.  Unfortunately she had to unseat two of her own teamates to do it.  However, Caitlin represneted Cedarcrest very well and gained some valuable experience for years to come.

With no current golfers in the class of 2013, next season looks to be another year for this same young core to improve and mature.  We look forward to not only the 2013 season, but the 2014 season as well!!

2011 Season in Review

June 1 - 2011 was a surprise season for the Cedarcrest Golf Team.  With only 3 varsity returning players, Seniors Lauren Houk and Sierra Berg, and Junior Jordan Short, it looked like we would rely on youth to get us through the season.  While there were several new players that turned out, two new upperclassman were what spurred on a great season.  Transfer Junior Courtney Hoekstra and first time Senior Sam Dunn joined with the returners to create a very talented team.

The regular season went very well for the Red Wolves winning all nine league matches.  It was the second time Lauren and Sierra had been involved in an undefeated season.  Courtney, Lauren, and Sam all finished with all league individual honors.  At the Conference Championship Match, many other girls from other teams played extremely well, and Cedarcrest was unable to gain back the League Title that we had lost a year earlier.   The District Tournament provided an opportunity for some redemption, and the team played well to place 4th overall, beating out all other Cascade Conference schools.  The results allowed us to end our season on a high note, sending two representatives to the State, Lauren Houk and Sam Dunn

Lauren and Sierra finished a great four years at Cedarcrest.  They were a part of two league championship teams, two undefeated regular seasons, and were a part of many scoring records for the league.  They leave a team that has a bright future thanks to the four years of leadership they showed.  Lauren was one of only three golfers in Cedarcrest history to qualify for state twice, and receive all league honors for all four years.   At the end of the year, she was also inducted into the Cedarcrest Athletic Hall of Fame for her golf accomplishments.

Even with all that talent, ability, and character leaving the program, we look forward to a very bright future in 2012.
