Thanks to all of the parents for supporting your junior player! Today featured a group of 28 kids at The Children's Course, home of the First Tee of Greater Portland. We saw some excellent shots out their on the course, with players hitting the green, draining putts, and even making some pars. Good job to everyone for showing how to properly take a drop from the cart path after the round. I hope you are able to use this rule to your advantage the next time you hit onto the path.
