Together with the Maine State Golf Association and The First Tee of Maine, the Maine Chapter of the NEPGA will be hosting a Junior Golf Open House on Sunday, May 3, 2015, from 1-4 pm at Val Halla Golf Course in Cumberland. And we need YOU!
In order to make this the most comprehensive event possible, we are inviting all Chapter Professionals, MSGA member clubs, junior golf programs and golf associations to join us in this event. We invite you to come promote your junior programs AT NO CHARGE and be a part of our special junior golf day.
We are asking Maine Professionals to donate their time to give short lessons during the event, and any Professional who does so will receive MSR service credits of up to four hours.
The purpose of this Open House is to promote all junior golf opportunities (ages 5-18) offered in Maine for the coming season so that parents and young golfers can determine which program are right for them. If your club has a junior program, this is the place to promote it. We’ll be advertising the Open House with radio spots, in our newsletters and will also be promoting it with statewide recreation departments. We’re hoping for a crowd of more than 1,000 parents and young golfers.
We will have door prizes and opportunities to demo junior equipment and players will be able to sign up for Drive, Chip and Putt, PGA Jr. League and/or MSGA Jr. Tour events.
We also ask you to check out www.juniorgolfmaine.com to see what we’ve put together to promote junior golf. We invite and ENCOURAGE you to send us your information about your club’s junior program so that we may link it to this page, making it as comprehensive as possible for a junior golf clearinghouse.
Yours in golf,
Bob Timmins, Chair
