The golf team at Saint Stanislaus consists of highly skilled players, some of whom have handicaps of 5 or better. Many golfers from this team have enjoyed successful college careers at both Division I and III levels, with some even receiving All-American honors. The Golf Rocks participate in various tournaments held in the area.
Golf began at Saint Stanislaus in 1972 under Coach Ron Engel. He guided the program until 1978 when the school ceased the program due to the MHSAA not sanctioning the sport. When the MHSAA sanctioned the sport in 1988, the sport was restarted under Chuck Genin. The Rocks took division titles from 1993-1996, 1998-2001, 2010, 2012, and 2013-2017. The Rocks were Class 4A state runner-up in 1995 and 2016 and Class 4A state champions in 2014 and 2015.
In 2020, Mark Logan was named the new golf coach. Mark is a graduate of Saint Stanislaus (SSC ’86) and led the Varsity Baseball Program for 17 years. Logan, the program’s winningest coach in history, stepped away from the dugout after 17 years as manager of the program with a record of 286-168, six Division 8-4A titles, two Class 4A South State titles and two Class 4A state championships (2010, 2015). He is now ready to take his success on the baseball field to the golf program.
