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.

Last year's first-ever Junior Golf Jamboree, which the club co-sponsored with the Maine State Golf Association, the PGA New England Section and Junior Golf Maine, was a huge success.  Club members and island residents alike were caught up in the fun and enthusiasm of this very special day.  Featuring an afternoon of golf, a barbeque and a 7th tee shoot out, the Jamboree attracted 40 junior golfers and 46 family members.  Most of the participants were from the mainland.  The club's Junior Golf Committee encourages more island juniors to sign-up this year.  Participation will be limited to 48 juniors.  

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.

Junior Jamboree

The first-ever Maine Junior Golf Jamboree, held on Saturday, June 24, 2017 and sponsored by Junior Golf of Maine, was a huge success. Forty junior golfers and fifty family members from southern Maine participated in this fun event.  Two Chebeague juniors--Quinn Federle and Philip Traina--were in foursomes that took top prizes in two divisions. The weather was glorious, the course got rave reviews and our member volunteers were in top form.  A golf day to remember on Great Chebeague Island!

Women's Day

Hole-y Cow! Four Aces in Eleven Days

It took until September for a hole-in-one to be recorded on our course in 2017--and then there were four in eleven days--all on the club's signature 7th Hole, all with the cup on the lower level, the spot that offers the best chance of a hole-in-one on the course.   

Kathy Maskell, club Vice President, scored the latest one on Tuesday, September 12.  It was her first ever.  Kathy was playing with her father, the venerated Chuck Hilly.  

 

Three days earlier, Mike Dyer of South Portland thrilled to watch his nine iron send his ball to the 7th green cup. Mike was part of an outing to the club organized by Pete Rauscher of Port Harbor Marine.

The first of the four occurred on Friday evening, September 1 and was achieved by Bob "Birdie Bob" Scheele of Sunapee, New Hampshire.  

Club member and past Men's Champion Corky Clarke scored the second in dramatic fashion during the club's annual Labor Day Swatfest.  Jim Van Fleet had already won the Men's Swatfest competition.  Clarke and Bob Buxbaum went to the 7th tee to play-off for second place.  With a gallery of Swatfest aficionados looking on, Clarke's high arcing tee shot landed well above the pin, hesitated for a nano-second, then funneled into the cup.  Buxbaum was next up and, astoundingly, his ball, landing on a similar spot, took the same tantalizing journey toward the hole, only to brush the pin and continue past the cup.  He made the come-backer to finish third.
