O’Dea Golf

The O’Dea High School Golf Program is steeped in talented Alums with victories and many memorable moments both on and off the course. Anyone that has ever golfed for O’Dea will tell you that they have special memories from those times.

The golf program’s history is anchored by Master’s Champion Fred Couples. Couples won two individual State Titles for O’Dea in 1976 and 1977. In 2008 O’Dea won its first State Team title with the help of Cory Mehl, Tyler Kato, and Sandy Vaughan who all placed in the top 15 in state.

Hundreds of young men have had the good fortune to play golf at O’Dea, showing good sportsmanship in both wins and losses. Golf at O’Dea is a very special sport; the boys learn patience, discipline and enjoy great comradeship.

Brian Vaughan has coached for ten years and sees the future very bright for the Irish Golf Program.

Coach's Corner

200x200Brian Vaughan has been O’Dea’s Head Golf Coach since 2006. During that time Brian has coached five Metro individual winners: Cory Mehl won in ’06 and ’07, shooting a 60 at the ’06 event, Sandy Vaughan won in ‘08, Tyler Kato in ’10, and David Fonua in ‘12. Collectively, Coach Vaughan’s teams have placed second in state twice, and third once. Brian enjoys watching the boys learn to be disciplined and teaching them to enjoy the lifelong game at a very competitive level.

Brian has been married to his wife Susan for 30 years and together they have a son, Sandy. Sandy is a proud graduate of O’Dea High School (’08). In his senior, the O’Dea golf team went undefeated and was awarded O’Dea’s first State Golf Title in school history. He went on to play at Western Washington University and graduated in 2013.
