Golf is truly a lifelong sport. It is a game of continuous work, humility, and mastery. Whether you are just beginning, or you are number one on the ladder, the Bement golf program strives to be inclusive, fun, and challenging. As a co-ed sport, all golfers receive a mix of group and individual instruction and our top six players compete in matches against other schools. Currently, the Greenfield Country Club is our home course, where students use a combination of the driving range, the practice green, and playing rounds to learn the rules and hone their skills with the goal of playing in and excelling in matches. The golfers work with their Bement coaches, but also receive assistance from a club pro. We compete with Deerfield Academy, Northfield Mount Hermon, Eagle Hill, MacDuffie, Rectory, and Williston.
Alex has been running around on Bement fields since he started as a student in third grade. In his 13th year as the head boys varsity soccer coach, Alex played on the Deerfield Academy varsity team as well as a club league in Nairobi, Kenya. As the Athletic Director, Health teacher, 9th grade advisor, and avid athlete, Alex is in his 42nd consecutive season of coaching. "I love trying to figure out how to reach every athlete as their coach and work to instill passion and confidence. Coaching is truly an art and I never want to stop in my pursuit to be better." Along with soccer, Alex coaches girls' varsity basketball and golf.
