Childrens Golf Lessons

I wanted to write a quick note to all the parents of the children, sponsors and members who attended or helped with our Childrens golf lessons up to this easter.

We had a great time and have seen some really good progress with the golfing skills of our young players. I think the children have also had a lot of fun playing and learning golf, enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the Roaring River Golf Course and their after golf ice creams and juices.

They all deserved their Certificates of Achievement that were awarded to them this week.

A big thank you to Jenny and Paul from the Golf course for hosting the childrens lessons. Also thank you to all our sponsors who have donated balls, tees, clubs, juices, snacks, money and sponsored the cost of running the lessons.

If anyone wants to help us with sponsorship with the lessons after Easter we would be happy to hear from you. We hope to grow the program and bring in more children so please spread the word.

We are taking a 2 week break for Easter. Lessons are changing from a Tuesday to a Wednesday and will resume on May 4th. .

Please respond to this email if you are interested in signing your children up for lessons starting Wednesday, May 4th.

Many Thanks and have a happy Easter holiday.

Belize Golf Tournament Results - April 9th 2011

Thanks to all the players who turned out this saturday for the fun tournament.

We decided to play an individual 18 hole stableford tournament. Points are awarded for each hole. 1 Point for bogey, 2 points for par, 3 points for birdie and 4 points for eagle. In addition, players get strokes on holes based on their handicaps. For example a 10 handicap player gets 1 stroke on each of the 10 most difficult holes on the course. A player with a 6 handicap gets 1 stroke on each of the 6 hardest holes on the course.

If the player scores a par, but has a stroke it becomes a net birdie, giving him 3 points.

If you play to your handicap you will have 36 points after 18 holes. If you play better than your handicap you will have more than 36 points. If you play worse than your handicap you will have less than 36 points.

Congratulations to Robert Lee who won the best front 9 with a very impressive 23 stableford points.

And congratulation to Jean Louis who won the back 9 with 18 stableford points.
