Family Centre Kids Golf Clinic On November 1

October 28, 2015

The Family Centre will host their seventh annual Kid’s Golf Clinic and Supper on Sunday, November 1 at the Turtle Hill Golf Course at the Fairmont Southampton, with 75 young people between the ages of 6 and 16 signed up to have private instruction from Bermuda’s golfing professionals.

Afterward, a pizza party will be hosted at the Fairmont Southampton golf clubhouse with chips, cookies, fruit, juices and sodas. Each registered child will receive a gift from Family Centre.

A particular feature of this year’s Golf Clinic is a celebrity appearance at 3.30pm by Welsh golfer Becky Brewerton, who turned professional in 2003 after a successful amateur career that culminated in her winning the European Ladies’ Amateur Championship in 2002.

In the same year, Ms. Brewerton was also named the Daily Telegraph’s Player of the Year. Her maiden professional victory was a three stroke win at the 2007 Ladies’ English Open; this, plus four other top ten finishes, earned her a place on the 2007 European Solheim Cup Team, the first Welsh golfer to make the team.

Martha Dismont, Family Centre Executive Director, said, “We are extremely grateful to Tokio Millennium for being the title sponsor of this event once again this year. Deloitte also supports this effort too. This year, we are grateful to Fairmont Southampton for their contributions.

“It is particularly exciting as this year is our 25th anniversary. The Junior Golf Clinic is a great event because our friends, clients, and donors all show up to watch children participate and to enjoy an evening meal together.

“While the Kid’s Clinic no longer has spaces available, if there is a parent with children under 16, who already has some golfing experience, they are welcome to come for 3:30pm and play a few holes of golf together, followed by supper.”

Paul Adams, president of PGA Bermuda, said, “It means a lot to the PGA golfing professionals on the island to be able to share their skills and passion for the game. Golf is the only sport that one can play as a family.”

Chris Brough, President of the BJGA, said, “The BJGA is delighted to lend its support to the Family Centre’s annual golf event. We have been directly involved in this event for the past two years and are encouraged by the enthusiasm the first-time players have for the game.

“The storms last month forced a change of plan so the format will be a bit different this year but we are looking forward to having a good afternoon at Ocean View Golf Club. One of the best things about this event is that it has evolved into something for the whole family with parents staying to watch their sons and daughters learn something new.

“We are excited about growing the game of golf in Bermuda and the more kids we can expose to the game the better for the future of golf in Bermuda.”
