Do you know someone (girls) that might be interested in golf. Ask them, come work with us to help them feel good about the sport.


Coaches Murray and Smiley


We are looking for girls golfers to join the team. We have room for several, as many of our golfers are graduating this year, new players. It doesn't matter if you have never played before. We will teach you. If you are a Sophomore or Junior next year we are particularly looking for you.


Come see Coach Murray or Coach Smiley after the 1st of the year.

Mission Statement

The mission of our golf teams, both boys and girls, is to impact the lives of young people by providing learning opportunities that promote character-development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf. 


We, your coaching staff, are committed to bring excellence and integrity in our daily contact with you as a member of our golf team. We will work with you to help you help you, to help you understand your talents, challenges, and desires in respect to the wonderful game of golf.


We want to bring character building fun to your lives by helping you to learn about your game. How to do proper wood swing paths, iron and wedge swing paths, and your putting stroke. We will help you with the rules, regulations, dress code requirements, course management, and understanding the game of golf.


Therefore, we want our Rio Linda Knights Golf Team members to embrace the seven knightly virtues: 


and Integrity

Thank you

We would like to say thank you to a couple of ladies golf organizations for giving us a grant.


The Women's Golf Association of Northern California ( gave us a grant to get new golf bags for the girls golf team. Actually there has NEVER been golf bags designated for the girls golf team. So...


And the Pacific Women's Golf Association ( gave us a grant to get a new set of starter clubs for the team.

Required Paperwork



We need your physicals in before you can play. Also, you need to be registered with familyID.



Please do that today.

Golf Attire

This year we will be using, for you ladies, black skorts.


You do NOT have to get them at a golf course. In fact I would suggest to you NOT to as they are quite pricey. Your team captains have told me that they are available at Target for a much more reasonable price. Also, we will be having black, and yellow, shirts to complete your uniforms.
