The boys golf team plays and practices at Rosewood Country Club. We currently have 15 boys on the team and no girls. We hope to get more players each year to spark the interest of the game of golf. Several boys and girls golfers from Marion County have signed college scholarships and many more have developed a love for the game for life.
