Our home course is Brookside Country club, which lies adjacent to The Hill School campus, easy walking distance for players. The women’s tees offer a strong test of golf at 5,400 yards, a fine training ground for future college players. Brookside is, by far, one of the better courses to play in the MAPL league. We also have the opportunity to compete on some of the premier courses in Philadelphia, including home of the U.S. Open, Merion Golf Club.
Even though playing in college is not the ultimate objective for Hill players, we have had a number of young women go on to compete at the collegiate level, with two earning All-American honors and League Player of the Year distinction at the Division 3 level (Jane Hopkinson-Wood ’14 and Elizabeth Gudas ‘14). Some of the schools where our players have matriculated include Amherst, Dickinson, Franklin and Marshall, Middlebury, Ohio Wesleyan, Williams and Wittenberg. Jane Hopkinson-Wood, who was a 4-time All-American, is currently head women’s golf coach at Centre College in Kentucky.
