To all Junior Golf Parents & Grandparents:
CMJG wishes to announce the Junior Golf Program for 2014. While 2013 was very successful for us, we are looking forward to an even better year in 2014.
The program has one major change that should be very helpful to many of you. It was decided to move the portion of CMJG that was in Margaretville to Roxbury. For those that are not familiar with the golf course in Roxbury it is called Shephard Hills Golf Course. This is an exciting change because it moves us 11 miles closer to Stamford and/or other locations North of Roxbury!
We are working around the Stamford program once again to maximize the golf experience for the young folks. First, we are encouraging all those in Stamford that must be 11 yrs or older to join both programs. More is better in the case of golf! Second, for those only signing up for the Ouleout Creek GC program and the Shephard Hills program (see dates below), we welcome ages 5-17.
We welcome those that would like to help us with ‘mentoring’. As is always the case, this program’s success may well rest with the volunteers.
Once again we are setting up for a four week program. Tuesday mornings will be at Ouleout and Thursday mornings will be at Shephard Hills. Then the Parent/Jr Tournament will finalize the golf portion. In conclusion the banquet will once again be held at the Mine Kill State Park in North Blenheim on State Route 30.
There will be some additional wrinkles to the CMJG normal program that will have Junior Golfers playing at other courses for instance “TEAM GOLF” (details to be announced later on). Golf equipment from the Stamford program will once again be available to us. There should be enough for all those needing to borrow clubs.
Dates are as follows: OCGC – Tuesdays – Jul 8, 15, 22 and 29; Parent/Jr, Sat afternoon Jul 26th. For SHGC- Thursdays – Jul 10, 17, 24 and 31; Parent/Jr, Sat afternoon Aug 2nd. The combined Awards Banquet at Mine Kill State Park in North Blenheim will be Sunday afternoon Aug 3rd.
In closing I would like to mention that as of March 1, 2014 the application will be on our Web Site… www.catskillmountainsjuniorgolf.com. There will be similar info posted and other details posted on the site as we go along. Once again we will limit the total number at each golf course to 70 participants. No special consideration will be given to those from the 2013 roster.
