Golf is a wonderful game! It is the only sport where each competitor is the referee, player, equipment handler, and ambassador. It is designed to teach etiquette, patience, fairness, and goodwill towards your fellow competitor. It is a great place to meet new people.
The great aspects of golf are rooted in tradition and are generally taught through interaction with fellow golfers. As adults, we understand that golf has certain written and unwritten rules that are to be followed for the benefit of all. There are methods of teaching, training and educating amateurs that should enhance the joy of playing.
This is where the importance of junior golf programs shine. Junior golf programs help foster and develop all aspects of the game. They teach younger players values of honesty, integrity and respect both on and off the course. Their importance to the overall health of the game cannot be overstated because the next group of great players need a way to excel towards being the next Jack Nicklaus.
Castletown have gained a few juniors this year and Ged Power has assisted in teaching the juniors on Sunday and Thursday afternoons. We have had more junior applications towards the end of the year and want to help the juniors progress and become great players. In order to achieve this it would be great to have a few more volunteers to help out. If you are available / interested in helping, please contact Ged on 822211 / firstname.lastname@example.org
