Elementary School Students Take a Swing at Golf

The Bedford-Sackville Observer

“At this stage, we’re learning about hand-eye coordination, so it’s not really about all of the skills you need to swing a club. We just want them to make contact, it can be fun and easy for them.

How is everyone making out during these challenging times? I do hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I am hopeful all of this will be behind us soon and we can return to a new normal. Today I was challenged by fellow PGA of Canada members from across the country to donate to our local food bank. I couldn't think of a more deserving charity at this time to support families who may be falling behind. Stay safe everyone and reach out to a friend or golfing buddy who may be isolated at this time. We will get through this! ... See MoreSee Less

The basement putting green is complete! Thanks @GolfSupplyHouse for the amazing turf and cups. Think I need flags? Practice made better with @CallawayGolf @odysseygolf #strokelab putters. Think I need a few posters @tommyjdunn @BruceCarroll11 to finish the studio? #golf

Those thinking about going to a public golf course and playing should stay away but donate a % of your green fee to keep the people that will be there when we all come back to play afloat. Private members, please pay your dues...same applies. We need golf to survive this period!
