Menne leads Senior Champ with 67
In the backdrop of Okemo Mountain lies a field of dreams for the Senior PGA Professionals from around New England.Each August they trek north to the scenicriverside town of Ludlow, VT for 36 holes of competition, which in many cases is overshadowed by the laughs and constant reminiscing of the days of yore.While the Senior Championship is open to NEPGA Professional over 50, don’t let the number fool you.These men and women have been leaders in the ever-changing golf business for decades, and can still play a lick!...
Junior golfers are the future of the game we all love.They play for the fun of it and will become the next generation of PGA Tour players, golf administrators, weekend warriors, or even a PGA Professional.Today at the Dedham Country & Polo Club, 28 teams comprised of a PGA Professional and 3 Junior Golfers from their facility teamed up to enjoy the manicured links of Dedham, have some fun, and make a ton of birdies!...
The Pro-Lady is one of the true team events left on the NEPGA Calendar.There are the Pro-Pro’s and Pro-Am’s, which allow players to take a few holes off while their partners carry the team.Players are given a full amount of strokes based on their handicaps, leading to outstanding Net scores.But for the Pro-Lady, all of that gets thrown out the window for 18 holes in July, where Professionals bring a lady amateur partner for the Select-Drive, Alternate Shot where the team gets 40% of the Amateur handicap.Rather than 7 and 8-under par scores winning, a score around even-par is a tremendous score.The players generally look forward to the delicious post-round BBQ more than the grind of alternate shot.
NEPGA Announces Bob Beach, PGA as 2012 Patriot Golf Award Winner
Boylston, MA -- The New England Section PGA of America is proud to announce that its first NEPGA Patriot Award has been given to Bob Beach, PGA Head Professional at Braintree Municipal Golf Course.
The Patriot Award is presented to a PGA Professional who personifies patriotism through the game of golf and demonstrates unwavering commitment and dedication to the men and women who have valiantly served and protected the United States of America.
Bob Beach has worked tirelessly with veterans through the many programs that he has created for them and their families. In 2011, Beach was one of the founders of the Northeast Accessible Golf Association. This association specializes in helping brave military personnel returning from active duty with their goal of giving the golfing experience to these veterans and thanking them for their service. Bob uses an adaptive golf cart that was attained when he received a PGA Growth of the Game Foundation Grant in 2005. This cart allows Bob and NEPGA Professional volunteers to help disabled veterans with golf instruction and also on course playing opportunities.
Beach continues to offer free clinics on a weekly basis at both indoor and outdoor facilities to veterans and their families.
Bob will receive this award at the NEPGA Annual Awards Dinner that is scheduled for Kernwood Country Club on Friday, October 26th.
