NSGA Heading to Cape Breton to connect schools and golf courses!
Anne Balser, NSGA Manager of Sport Development and Championships will conduct the Golf in Schools and Mobile Clinics. She will be joined by Futures Links Intern Connor Boucher.
“Our goal is to establish a direct link with schools in Cape Breton and their local golf club. We want to provide opportunities for kids interested in golf to learn about the game, and give them a clear pathway to become golfers.” said David Campbell, Executive Director of the NSGA. “By delivering golf in schools and offering mobile clinics at golf courses will help bridge the gap between the classroom and the clubhouse.”
“We are very pleased to be partnering with the NSGA to deliver the Golf in Schools programs across Cape Breton. The responsibility to grow the game of golf falls to the golf clubs on the island and with the Golf in Schools program, we hope to introduce the game of golf to children who may have never had the opportunity to play.” said Donnie Rowe, General Manager of the Lingan Golf Club.
This trip will mark the beginning of a season long plan to help raise the profile of golf in the Cape Breton region. The island has grown into a world class golf destination and we hope to bring more Cape Bretoner’s into the game. Our Mobile Clinics and Skills Competitions are open to all juniors wanting to learn to golf. Please contact your nearest club in Cape Breton or the NSGA to find a clinic near you.
