The Blue Rock Golf Course PGA Jr. League Golf Team by Jan
This year Blue Rock Golf Course started a PGA Jr. League Golf Team, led by Patrick Fannan, Head Golf Professional, and his assistant Marybeth Winslow. These young golfers, age 7- 13 year olds, have one practice and one match per week. I was privileged to attend their last match for the season against the team from The Captain’s Golf Course. Other teams they played were from Cranberry Valley Golf Course (two teams), Dennis Highlands Golf Course, and Eastward Ho Country Club.
For these matches each team sends out three to four players, two starters and one to two alternates which will play after the first three holes of the nine hole match. As an alternate your job is to act as a caddie, with advice and flagremoval, etc. As I watched these players, I was amazed by their knowledge of the rules of etiquette and their enthusiasm about the game. It was so nice to see and hear the encouragement they gave each other.
On the fifth hole at Blue Rock, a long 205 par three (for this match a par 4), I watched a seven year old just drive the ball straight down the middle of the fairway, and his ten year old partner preceded to hit it on the green. Two putts and they made par!
What a wonderful way to “grow the game”, a sport these kids will have for a life time.
