Canyon del Oro boy’s golf coach John Farbarik retired after leading the Dorados for the past 10 years. Farbarik retired with a record of 1,037-314-4 from 2006-2015. Part of those 1,000 plus wins included two state championships and three runner-up finishes.
Farbarik rebuilt the program after a decade of average play (325-224-7) that resulted from the retirement of legendary coach John Ruiz in the early 1980s. Ruiz coached the Dorados to six state titles from 1974 to 1980…..
