DENTON JOHN GUYER HIGH SCHOOL WILDCAT GOLF

WELCOME WEB PAGE

 

 

Welcome to the Wildcat Golf pages of John Guyer High School in Denton, Texas.  Our address is 7501 Teasley Lane, Denton 76210 and our school telephone is 369.1000. 
Assistant coach Lance Brown and head coach Roddy Adams greatly appreciate your interest in our program which consists of fall and spring golf for both the girls and the boys teams.  We currently have 6 girls and 13 boys on our 2012-2013 teams.  Our Lady Wildcats won District 5-4A championships in the spring of 2007 and 2009.  They earned another Region 1 birth with a second place finish in April of 2008 and finished third in 2010.  In our school's 8 years the boys have finished 5th, 4th, 4th, 5th, 2nd {in 2010}, and 4th with individual regional qualifiers in '07, '09, '10, and '11 with the team qualifying in 2010 for regionals. The Girl's and Boy's team of May 2013 will graduate 2 boys and 2 girls.      

 

We will have multiple boys and girls competing for the top 5 spots for tournaments.  Our school practices are generally held at Lantana Golf Club, Oakmont Country Club, and T.W.U. golf course.   The district has long range plans of building a practice facility using artificial greens with bunkers and a driving range area adjacent to the C.H. Collins Athletic Complex as well.  Boys/Girls needing more experience practice from 8:15-9:30 am and more advanced Girls/Boys practice from 3:45-5:45 pm.   If players are members at the practice site they are welcome, obviously, to stay as long as they wish.  All of the players are urged to practice as much as possible outside the school day and on weekends if championship skills are to be achieved.

 

The varsity teams play the maximum of eight tournaments allowed by the U.I.L. in addition to the district tournament and hopefully regional and state tournaments which individuals and teams must qualify to participate.  We have fall and spring golf as do most 4A and 5A schools in north Texas. The junior varsity or varsity B-team will play 6-8 tournaments, and players with enough skills and ability also can be chosen to participate in the April district tournament.  Players in Texas, as in most states, are also allowed, in fact encouraged to play on various junior tournament tours (such as TJGT.com and Jr. NTPGA.com) throughout the year as long as the school’s tournament schedule is considered.  The better players do this and it is noticed by their skill levels and scores in tournament play.

 

Our overall goals are to win the district championships each year, to win the Region I championships in Abilene, Texas,
(Diamondback G.C.) and obviously to be first among the eight teams that play for the State Championship in Austin, Texas each May.  Individual championships are also possible in Texas High School sports such as golf and tennis.  Our coaching philosophies are to practice to become better players and not to practice just to pass time or to become consistent with bad habits.  Academics are of the utmost importance due to the long range effects, obviously, upon individual lives.  Therefore we stress quality grades as well as quality character in each student/athlete.  Please take the time to examine our website and feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding our recognized  school or our golf program.  In addition to our coaching staff we also have great support in our administrative positions headed by our principal, Barbara Fischer.
