Head Coach Bert Kovarik has been the head coach of Hawken Boys Golf for 14 years. During his tenure, the Hawks have won six league championships and had two state qualifiers. Coach K has been named Chagrin Valley Conference Coach of the Year six times.
While we always aim for CVC, sectional, district, and state championships, Hawken Golf is a character-first program. High school golf is a game with no officials – players must monitor their own play, scoring, and thus, integrity and Fair Play are of the utmost importance. Moreover, conduct, focus, and resiliency must also be in one’s bag if success is expected.
Since the grand opening in November, over 100 students have utilized the center each day, whether for in-season team training, off-season training, or general fitness. In addition to large numbers of upper school students, the impact will be far reaching, as middle school speed and strength sessions are scheduled to start in January, in addition to other programs and events that are planned to roll out throughout 2022. Opportunities for faculty, staff and alumni access are in the planning phase as well.
