About

Established in 1998, Hamilton High School Boys Golf Team is a high school golf program in the Arizona 5A Division-I classification.  The team has enjoyed many successful seasons of competitive golf.  Among our major tournament victories and recognition, the team has qualified for the State Championship the last 18 years in a row and won 5 straight State Championships from 2005 to 2009 plus a National Title at 2011 Antigua National High School Golf Invitational.  The team was able to add our most recent State Title, our sixth, in 2014.  Hamilton High School Golf Team is also known for winning 6 straight Arizona Stroke Play Championship by a Hamilton Huskies student or a graduate.    

Hamilton High School was recently voted as the #1 Comprehensive school in Arizona.  Many golf team members were able to maintain GPA of 4.0 or higher while being a student athlete at Hamilton.  Our program has successfully prepared students to move on to top universities for higher education and some even continue to play golf at the collegiate and professional level.  Former Hamilton golfers are currently playing or have played at Stanford University, Arizona State University, University of Arizona, Colorado State University, University of Hawaii, University of Nebraska, University of Denver, Colorado State University, Drake University to name just a few.
