Friday Harbor golfers get in some strategic practice during Spring Break

Wolverine Coach Jack Rice says Spring Break provided the perfect opportunity for his players to play a practice round at the Gallery Golf Club in Oak Harbor. Four players took advantage of the opportunity to get a feel for the course.

Loomis Trail was purchased by the Lummi Nation within the last year. The Lummi High School is in the process of starting a new golf program. They have two young men learning to play the game now and they intend to build a strong program in years ahead. Owning a golf course should really jumpstart the program; it is a well designed course in very good condition.

Tuesday, March 26 there were six high school golf teams playing matches at the course. Friday Harbor experienced something a little different than their home course, the first four holes are so tight you have to walk single file down the fairway; at least that’s how it seemed to our golfers. It’s good experience for the team to get away from their home course once in awhile to get a different perspective on the game of golf.

We play Grace Academy on Thursday, March 28 at Cedar Park.
