Travel

Edge golfers are on the move! Every school year, the Golf Director plans and organizes golf trips designed to encourage passion for all aspects of the game…and maybe even fuel the thoughts of a golf scholarship! Students participate in fall and spring tournaments throughout North America and a winter training camp in a southern climate. This provides the young golfers with the chance to develop game-tough mental skills, experience travel and golf challenges and an introduction to college coaches and programs.
