The boys’ JV golf team is an integral part of the success of the Taft golf program. Members have the opportunity to practice and play at Watertown Golf Club, giving them time to improve all aspects of their game as they prepare to move up to the varsity level.
Practices are a balance between skill development and on-course play; the team has 16 scheduled matches. Many players who begin their golf careers at Taft as junior varsity players end up being major contributors to the varsity squad, and enjoy the game of golf for a lifetime.
