Chiefland golfers on par

-A A +A
By Mike Capshaw, Staff Writer

Heading into the season, Chiefland High's golfers lobbied with coach Dave Mitchell to schedule more away matches. It wasn't that they didn't enjoy playing their home course at Chiefland Golf & Country Club, they just wanted to experience different courses after playing at home in five of their nine regular season matches in 2010.

As it turns out, the change in scenery has done wonders for the Indians' golf games.

"We've ended up playing some of the most difficult courses that we can play," Mitchell said. "I thought that if I can get these to keep playing tournaments on these really hard courses then at some point, it's going to make our home course that much easier and make our district not such of a daunting task."

The second-year coach figured correctly. After matches at Haile Plantation Golf & Country Club, Gainesville Country Club, the Mark Bostic Golf Course at the University of Florida and at the Country Club of Ocala, Chiefland is playing its best golf of the season, perhaps even the best in school history.
