The Westover Golf team began play in 2009, and the program has made great strides over the past two years. The 2011 team finished with a record of 7 wins, 6 losses, and 1 tie, and had a very good showing at the 2011 Pippy O'Connor Independent School Golf Classic, which is an 18-hole tournament to conclude the season. The 2014 team has one senior and is led by co-captains Danny Smooke 14 and Dalia Tejada '15.
The Wildcats’ home course is Highfield Club, located in Middlebury, CT, where the team practices and plays their home matches. The 9-hole course at the Highfield Club features 3,253 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 36. Designed by Orrin E. Smith/Al Zikorus, the Highfield golf course opened in 1953. Practice facilities and the rights to practice 4 days a week with home matches sprinkled in enables the team to work on all aspects of their game and improve their skills.
