Golf is the sport that starts the earliest. The season begins on August 6. Please make sure you have all the appropriate paper work that you need to have, turned in. Since golf begins so early in the summer, we have no formal summer workouts. I would recommend playing and practicing as much as you can over the summer. I would recommend taking lessons at the course of your choice and playing in as many tournaments as possible. Denver Golf and Common Grounds have junior tournaments throughout the summer. If you are unsure of where to practice, Common Grounds has a great Junior Golf Program and I would recommend going there
