Tryouts: Team tryouts will occur in mid-March at either the Zionsville Golf Course or Zionsville Practice Center. Tryouts are contingent upon both golf facility availability and weather conditions.

In recent years 25-40 boys have attended golf team tryouts; sign-ups for tryouts were required through Sign-Up Genius.

Matches: Zionsville Golf Course is the home course for ZMS; home matches will begin at approximately 4:30 pm. Team members are expected to the arrive at the golf course 30-minutes prior to the start of the match. The matches typically last 2-3 hours.
For away matches, the team will leave immediately after school. Transportation is provided for these matches. A few of the matches are played over 1-hour from ZMS; the coaches will alter matches in order to ensure students arrive home at an appropriate time.
For each match, every effort is made to take all team members. For home matches every ZMS golfer will compete. The Zionsville Invitational and NSC Conference Finals permit only 5 players from each school to compete.
