Valor High School senior Ross Macdonald has been playing golf since he was eight years old. He started his golfing career at The Ridge at Castle Pines North golf course, just up the street from his Forest Park home, and is finishing his high school days at the top of his game. Macdonald, along with his Valor teammates took the 2014 4A State Championship, winning by an astounding 23 strokes. Individually, Macdonald took third place at state.
“It felt awesome to be on a championship team,” said Macdonald. “I love to practice and then see my work pay off. We were state champs last year too, so it felt good to defend our title.”
Macdonald, who has signed his letter of intent to play golf at University of Colorado next year, has also been named the Colorado Golf Association’s (CGA) Junior Player of the Year. Last month, he was honored at a brunch hosted by the CGA, which noted his outstanding season as well as his standing as a role model for younger players.
