Juniors draw against Baltinglass GC in challenge.

Blessington Lakes GC juniors ldrew their friendly challenge against Baltinglass GC yesterday Sat 17th Sept. This really was an excellent result for our Junior golf program considering that a lot of the Baltinglass team are 3 or 4 years playing golf when compared to our Juniors whom really only started playing this summer. The score in the match was two and a half points each. The Summer golf program for Juniors has been the most successful achievement of the club to date this year and has been primarily driven by the ladies section of the club. Junior Convenor Ronnie Feighry has also getting his teeth into organizing away competitions and matches.for the juniors. Ronnie tells me that the juniors will be attending the club for the next 4 Fridays evenings for an hour long coaching session under the tutelage of Coach Tom O Neill. Well done to all.

if you have a spare hour on Friday evenings please get yourselves up to the club to give a dig out, our future as a thriving sport and indeed as a club lies in fostering a love of the game in kids, you never know you may even  pick up a little nugget from Tom, that little something that makes it all click together…….The eternal optimist.
