Golf Camp was part of the Middlesex Family YMCA sport camp lineup for this summer and was a huge hit. There is always a full roster and a waiting list for kids eager to enjoy the beautiful Piankatank River Golf Club. Children enjoy instruction and strategy on the wonderful game of golf.
As with most YMCA affairs, this camp would not be possible without our volunteers. Jerry McMurtrie, Gary and Lynn Richardson, and Jim Goforth were all an essential part of the thread that keeps our Y camps together.
Through caring, honesty, responsibility, respect and faith, these young golfers learned the skills they need to advance their golf game and also in the wonderful game of life.
Thanks to Buzz Lambert, Piankatank River Golf Club general manager, and Ben Griebel, the resident golf pro at Piankatank, for allowing us the opportunity to have such a great camp!
