Sunshine Letter | Golf tour swings Truckee kids life lessons
October 8, 2013
I'd like to Thank Doug Flynn for creating and organizing the Truckee Tahoe Jr. Golf Tour (www.ttjgt.com).
Doug has created a place for local youth to play competitive golf.
Both of our sons have learned the rules of golf in tournament play as well as the code of conduct which are life-long lessons — respect, honesty integrity. Players are taught to keep their own score and help other players with rules.
I witnessed a player warn his competitor that he had teed his ball beyond the tee markers on the 1st tee box, saving his opponent a penalty. Great stuff!
Both of my sons now regularly play at Ponderosa Golf Course on their own, in great part due to the preparation TTJGT has given them.
Thank you Doug for running this tour and making golf accessible at some of the finest courses in the area to our local kids.
