A record number of 45 young golfers ranging from age 7 to 16 participated in the free Shell Point Golf Club Junior Golf Camp that was sponsored by a generous donation from the Shell Point Men’s Golf Association. The four-day camp included range time with certified golf professionals, as well as actual course play.
Shell Point resident AJ Marinin, president of the Men’s Golf Association, said, “We felt, as a group, that is was important to support up-and-coming players. It’s always nice to get some young golfers out at Shell Point Golf Club!”
Golf Course Manager and PGA Professional Michael Raber added, “We were thrilled to welcome such a large group of young players who were eager to learn more about the great game of golf. It was a wonderful experience for everyone involved.”
