Junior Golf

The 2018 season promises to be one of the club's best ever for junior golfers.  Highlights will include three significant and fun activities that will teach beginners the fundamental skills and values of golf and hone the skills of more advanced junior golfers.  . 

Junior Golf Camp, July 30--August 3, 9:00 a.m.--12 noon.   

The Great Chebeague Golf Club and the Chebeague Recreation Center are co-sponsoring this first-ever week-long golf camp, which is open to juniors ages 7--16.  Brian Bickford, PGA Professional and Greely High School Golf Coach, will lead the camp. He will be aided by assistant PGA professionals and college golfers.  Campers will be divided into groups depending on their ability and knowledge of the game.  Mornings will consist of 1 1/2 hours of hands-on instruction and 1 1/2 hours of golf on the course, including on-course instruction.  Thanks to the generosity of the Barton Curit family, the special fee for Chebeague juniors will be only $100 for the week. Space will be held for island campers until June 30, at which time registration will open for mainland juniors.  Registration, which will be handled by Rec Center staff, will begin in mid-April.

Junior Golf Jamboree, Saturday, June 23, 12:30 p.m.--6:30 p.m.

Unfortunately, the Second Annual Maine Junior Golf Jamboree has been postponed.  We are hoping to reinvent it as part of an MSGA/USGA Play 9 event on September 9.  The Play 9 initiative is intended to introduce golfers, especially families, to the pleasures of nine-hole golf.  We will post more information in this space as details emerge.  

Junior Clinics, Thursdays, June 28--August 30, 3:15 p.m. 

Talk with almost any of the young adult golfers on Chebeague and they will tell you--with deep reverence for their instructors--that they got their golfing start at the Thursday afternoon Junior Clinics.  The newest beginner golfers, intermediates and advanced juniors benefit from these weekly instructional sessions, which focus not only on skills, but also on the values, rules and culture of golfing.

Club Honors Chuck Hilly on His 100th Birthday

Chuck Hilly celebrated his 100th birthday with family and friends in May in California.  Not to be outdone, participants in the Independence Day Swatfest honored Chuck with a surprise birthday cake at the end of the Swatfest picnic.  By the way, Chuck shot a 93--well under his age--at his home course not long before returning to Maine and the Great Chegeague Golf Club for the summer.

Keeping It In The Family:  Courtney Maskell Holes Out on Number 7

Last fall, Kathy Maskell scored a hole-in-one on the club's signature water hole.  Not to be out done, on July 9, Kathy's daughter Courtney watched her 7-iron tee shot plop into the cup on the same hole.  Courtney's ace occurred during her first-round match with Sally Crapser in the Women's Handicap Tournament.  Wow.
