It's hard to believe fall is here and that means girls' golf season has begun.
Today, we take a look at Newport Harbor High and Sage Hill.
Up first on the tee is Newport.
Coach Scott Tarnow said this season will be as much about instilling the finer points of the game such as rules and etiquette as how the girls swing the driver or five-iron.
Tarnow, in his 12th season, said the trend in recent years has been girls enter the program with less experience in the game as in prior seasons.
"We will be competitive," Tarnow said. "[The Sunset] League has really good girls."
Tarnow said two of his strongest players will be senior Charlotte Skjonsby and junior Tara Hanna.
"[Skjonsby] is very competitive; she works extremely hard," Tarnow said. "[Tara] is very cerebral. She's got to see incredible teams in the past."
Tarnow is referring to the Newport teams that went a combined 36-1 a few years ago.
