Girls' Golf - Varsity
The Portsmouth Abbey Girls' Golf team competes in the spring season against Eastern Independent League members Dana Hall and Newton Country Day, as well as Loomis Chafee, Miss Porters, Taft School and Notre Dame Academy. Each year the team participates in the Pippy O'Connor Independent School Golf Tournament and our own Parent/Daughter golf day. The team practices and plays its home matches at the Carnegie Abbey Club, a renowned Scottish Links course that borders the School's campus.
The Portsmouth Abbey Golf program believes in providing a challenging and educational experience outside the classroom. Golfers are expected to strive to reach their very best academically, socially and athletically. The coaching staff believes in a smart brand of golf that honors the game with strong attention to fundamentals.
