Rich Barsanti, the 2016 Fortuna High girls golf coach, coaches the girls at Redwood Empire Golf and Country Club to help try to improve their game by teaching them new techniques.
Girls Husky golf is played during the best, nicest weather of the year. The matches start at 12 p.m. once a week for the next two months. To get prepared for the matches, the girls practice Tuesday through Friday at Redwood Empire in Fortuna.
The Husky team participates in seven matches throughout the season. The seven golf courses the team competes in are: Benbow Golf Course, Del Norte Golf Course, Baywood Country Club, Redwood Empire Golf and Country Club, Eureka Golf Course, Willow Creek Country Club, and Beau Pre Golf Course.
The golf coach, Rich Barsanti, is now going on his second year of coaching. After speaking to Coach Barsanti for his love for coaching he says, “getting to know the kids and seeing them improve is my favorite thing about coaching the team.” His love for the game and willing to try and make the girls better is why he is an amazing coach.
