When the final putt was holed on Sunday afternoon, the last of three Prince Rupert Golf Club Open tournaments, was over, and a month of competitive golf, came to a conclusion.
Also concluding this past week, was the very successful Prince Rupert Rampage Junior Golf series. The program had a total registration of sixty boys and girls, in two divisions. The young group was for participants ten years and under and the Senior Division, older golfers. The idea for the program came from Colt and Brett Stava, who recruited volunteers from the popular hockey team.
The eight week program presented an opportunity for the youth to acquire some information on technique and etiquette involved in the game and to see that the golf course is a fun place to spend time.
In addition, parents and grandparents who attended, would see the Golf Course as a fun and safe place for the youth.
We will conduct our regular Summer Series of Golf Clinics on Tuesday mornings, beginning on July 12th. This will be a drop in program available to Boys and Girls with no age restrictions.
