President Lynda Dowdell invited Monet Samuelson, principal of Newland Elementary School, to speak to the members following the luncheon. She told of the needs of the children and ways that the lady golfers can help. The MGWGA has selected the school as a focus for their philanthropy this season and has selected August 10 as Newland Elementary Day! Donations will be collected and food cards from Ingles will be purchased.
The third and final 3-day Youth Golf Clinic of the 2021 season took place the week of July 12 at MGGC. These camps have been overwhelmingly popular with between 15 and 22 kids each day of camp. Young golfers participated in drills to hone their skills in chipping, putting, driving and fairway play. Along with being a great outlet and activity, these students of the game are making lifelong friends with whom to continue to hone their skills.
