Michael O’Neill was the first head coach of Girls Varsity Golf at Hawken School in 2004. He left Hawken after the 2007 season, but returned to coach the team in 2017, leading the 2017 squad to a third place finish in the Chagrin Valley Conference, a third place finish at sectionals, and a district qualification. Michael has also coached fastpitch softball at the Middle and Upper Schools at Hawken, and a running program for Lower School students.
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.
