The philosophy of Golf at Sacred Heart College is to teach students, who have not played Golf before, the fundamentals of the game, so that they can enjoy it as both a sport and a lifelong hobby.
Most students who are keen to play golf should join their local club so that they can get tuition, practice and games Players who are promising golfers usually play for a club.
The Sacred Heart Golf team plays in the Auckland Secondary Schools Regional Stroke Play Championship, in May each year. In 2017 we fielded two teams in this competition.
Players on about a 4 handicap may also play in the Auckland Secondary Schools Gross Competition.
Each year, the top four Golf players at Sacred Heart play off for the Sacred Heart College Championship which is based on the best gross score. This competition is played at the RNZAF Auckland Base Golf Course in Whenuapai.
In 2014, the Maudsley Golf Cup for College Champion was awarded to Ben Keen, in 2015 it was awarded to Liam Hill, in 2016 to John Misa and in 2017 it was awarded to Jaime Lansi.
