Boys Golf ’23 Fall Season
Hello and welcome to the PV Sharks Boys Golf Team website.
Home of the Reigning and Defending State Champions. We just came off our 6th straight State Championship! Our golf program now holds 8 State Championships from 2013, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022!
6 in a row and 8 total are both Florida High School Athletic Association State Records.
The competition and level of Junior Golf on this team is second to none.
There is a Varsity Golf Team. No Junior Varsity team.
’23 GOLF TRYOUTS
Florida High School Athletic Association states that Boys Golf Tryouts are allowed to begin JULY 31st – Monday.
This means players have to be available to play/tryout starting 7/31.
Calendar is fluid and dates/times are being added regularly depending on local course availability. All players interested in trying out should reach out to Coach Mickey Leapley at [email protected]. Please let him know of your intent to tryout, leave him your email/contact information so it can be added to the list. I also request any and all Junior Golf Tournament results from the past 8 months. Ex: What Junior Golf Association played in (FJT or NFJG or AGJA etc…), Location, yardage played and results.
Be on the look out for “PV GOLF REPORT” emails throughout the summer with updates on the upcoming season. All players must get “CLEARED” through our PVHS Athletic Department prior to tryouts. The clearance information needed can be found on the main PVHS Athletic Website. Get ahead of this earlier than later. Every student athlete needs this done for each sport. A lot of work leading up to the beginning of the Fall Sports season.
2023 Golf season begins 8/14.
Regular season practices/qualifying rounds and matches will be played on various days from 8/14 thru 10/20.
The number of players to be kept on the team will be determined by Coach Leapley at the conclusion of tryouts. Junior Scoreboard Result, team tryout results, past team experience, coaches’ discretion and other variables come into play to help determine our roster.
region champions once again!!!
The 2019 – 2020 Ponte Vedra Boys Golf Team
Florida High School Athletic Association or FHSAA is the governing body that oversees our sports. They determine when we can begin tryouts, play matches, and what clearing house information is needed prior to a student athlete being able to participate in a high school sport. Please note all the documentation, physicals, and videos (if applicable) needs to be completed and checked off by PVHS Athletic Director, Eric Frank, prior to being allowed to participate or tryout for the team. You can find these items on the main Athletic website or in the below section titled “Registration Instructions.”
“Coach Leapley DOES NOT collect and/or clear any of the student athletes. Notification of clearance for an athlete to tryout is sent to the coach once the online process is completed and the physical is uploaded. Players selected by the team will be picked by the coach based on the following criteria:
- Scores posted during tryout rounds
- Collection of junior scoreboard data at the parent meeting (what association, date/time/location of tourney, classification for which the player played, scores etc…
- Discretion of the coach
The number of players selected will be determined at a later date.
A huge congratulations to freshman, Will McGriff who has been offered a scholarship to play golf at the University of Florida. Will has verbally committed to them.
BACK TO BACK 2A STATE CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jr. Honda Classic in Palm Beach
October 16, 2018
From Coach Mickey Leapley:
Everyone at the Honda Invitational contributed on either the first, second or both days. How about it for number 6 player, Conner Holcroft, going low for the team. Depth in the lineup is a key factor for continued success in our golf program. I say this a lot… “Competition breeds success”. It’s true, all 15 players push our team to where we are today. Good stuff.
