Great River Golf Club to Host PGA Junior Golf Camps this Summer

Youth will learn fundamental golf and character skills

The PGA Junior Golf Camps  has selected Sacred Heart’s recently acquired golf course, Great River Golf Club in Milford, as a host site for its junior golf camps in July and August.

The inclusion of Great River Golf Club is part of a significant, national expansion plan for the PGA, which will place the camps at more than 75 nationwide locations. Local golf professional Tom Rosati, PGA, will lead the Great River camp.

“We are thrilled to have been selected as a camp location,” Rosati says. “In that the PGA of America is known for its expertise in golf instruction and growing the game of golf, the camps will be primed as the go-to destination for quality junior golf instruction this summer.  I am excited to be able to offer the finest junior golf camps to the young golfers of our community.”

All PGA Junior Golf Camps are led by professionals and designed for juniors of all skill levels. They aim to teach youth fundamental golf skills, as well as good sportsmanship and other character skills, in a supportive environment.

“PGA Junior Golf Camps’ focus is on both golf skills and character development,” states organization president Derek Sprague. “That, combined with the leadership of PGA professionals, is what makes them so successful. As the PGA celebrates its centennial in 2016, we remain steadfast in our commitment to growing the game of golf, and these camps will help ensure the future of our sport.”
