Girls Golf Legacy

Mission

Lady Eagles Golf Program Mission Statement:

Santa Margarita Catholic High School endeavors to bring the person and teachings of Jesus Christ to this time and place through a holistic and nurturing educational experience. This is reflected in the Lady Eagles Golf Program, which seeks to encourage in its golfers, a positive sense of self-worth, self-discipline, personal responsibility, successful interpersonal relationships, and a commitment to Gospel values. We strive to honor the tradition and integrity of the game of golf and promote the highest standards of personal character and leadership in all areas of competition and life.

Our Tradition of Excellence

As we enter our 15th season as a Girls’ Golf Program, the Lady Eagles look forward to continuing the legacy and tradition of success both on and off the golf course. Over the past 15 years, the Program has been blessed with numerous talented golfers who have won individual accolades, titles, and earned college scholarships. But it is our achievements as teams for which we are most proud. Over the past years, the Varsity Lady Eagles have been the CIF Championship Runner Ups twice, have qualified for the CIF Championship Finals 14 times, have captured the league title 9 times, and is the only team to have appeared in the Orange County Register’s top 5 rankings each of those years. Also in 2008, Coach Amy Connelly was named Orange County’s Girls Golf Coach of the Year by the OC Register, and in 2010 she was named one of the top female high school coaches in Orange County by the Association of Athletic Directors.

SMCHS Girls’ Golfers have advanced to play collegiate golf at the following colleges and universities: Arizona State, Princeton, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Santa Clara University, Cal State San Marcos, Chico State, Saddleback College, Wheaton College, Wofford College, San Diego State, Cal State Monterey, and Regis University.
