Golf - Varisty (Coed)
WELCOME TO WESTTOWN GOLF!!
Westtown Golf has a rich history of success in the Friends School League. As a member since 2003, Westtown has captured the FSL Championship seven times, including 5 of the last 7 seasons. The 2018 squad, led by two-time All-League selection Maya Torpey and Honorable Mention Fritz Gessl, finished the season strong with a string of league victories and an impressive showing in the league championship. Our home course is the beautiful and challenging Applebrook Golf Club, designed by Gil Hanse and considered one of the premier courses in the golf-rich Philadelphia area.
The parallels between golf and life are numerous. At Westtown, we strive not only to make our athletes better golfers, but more importantly, better people by applying golf to life lessons. A Westtown golfer will learn to take responsibility and be accountable for their own actions and develop patience and character to learn from adversity. They'll realize keeping an even keel is a good guiding principle and learn that having a positive mental attitude about everything we do in life is a game changer and can have an instant impact on our results. We'll act with honesty and integrity, to be humble, respectful and gracious. Most of all, we’ll learn when good habits collide with a relaxed focus, great results often follow.
