Junior Golfers swing their clubs on the course

It was a hot, sunny day out on the golf course for the Junior Golf Tee Off on Friday, June 22.

It was a hot, sunny day out on the golf course for the Junior Golf Tee Off on Friday, June 22. About 45 kids got out on the links and smacked balls around the course, trying out their golfing skills.

Organizer and instructor Linda Henke was grateful to the sponsors who made the day happen. International Forest Products Ltd. provided money for tournament, Nakusp Golf Club donated the course for the kids, Little Summit Driving Range gave them a place to learn and practise, and Kal Tire kicked in too to make sure the fun tournament could take place. Food was donated by Sysco, as well as Mel and the golf club kitchen who put out a great spread for the little golfers as well as pro-golfer Burt Drysdale, Linda Henke and most of all the parents and kids.

“It was about everybody,” said Henke, who gave each golfer a goody bag with a marker, tee, and a ball fixer (for the older kids), as well as home made popcorn balls and bottles of water.

“It was a great season,” she enthused, “thanks to everyone!”
