Event Highlights: Pro-Pro Stroke Play Championship
Tuesday, May 9th
The morning started off with some scares, as waking up this morning I approached my car only to find frost covering the windshield! Following the defrosting of my vehicle, I ventured down to Webhannet Golf Club the host of our 2017 Pro-Pro Stroke Play Championship. On my excursion my car thermometer never tapped out higher than 37 degrees. As the first event of the season, I was praying for nothing short of stupendous weather. As the day nudged along the sun bestowed its head and proceeded to hang around for the vast majority of the afternoon. The sun was shining, however as we all know with it being May in Maine that doesn’t always equate to warmth. There were some chilly moments and some slightly less chilly moments, drawing out a few winter hats some more noteworthy than others!
Foundation Takes Flight
All Six Chapters of the NEPGA get involved with the Foundation
-New England, USA
The New England PGA's Chapters have been incredibly active in the community with the launch of the New England PGA Foundation earlier this month. All six of our Chapters have found exciting ways to get out and give back to the community.
The Massachusetts Chapter took part in showing support to the Planting The Seed Foundation in Worcester, Mass. Members Allan Belden, PGA Mark Aldrich, PGA, Shawn Durocher, PGA, and Brian Smith, PGA were at the drive to present the Foundation donation. The non-profit group is dedicated to helping Worcester-area youths who are homeless or about to become homeless. Outside of the annual toy drive, the group helps to provide underprivileged children with school supplies, access to resources, and summer camp activities. Our PGA Professionals showed support and made a generous donation at the group's annual toy drive for the holiday season.
