Caddie Training Camps Announced
The New Jersey State Golf Association is pleased to announce upcoming dates for its annual Caddie Camps. This year's camps will run in conjunction with the Metropolitan Golf Association.
Each Caddie Camp is a one day, hands-on training session which includes indoor and outdoor instruction on the basics of becoming a caddie - such as etiquette, rules, the game, and how to handle the golf bag.
The eLeader Program in Action!
The LPGA*USGA Girls Golf eLeader Program is a volunteer program for girls, ages 13 - 18 looking to help their local site. 2016 marked a successful inaugural year with more than 100 girls enrolling and volunteering as eLeaders, averaging over 20 hours per volunteer, and over 25 Girls Golf Sites participating! This program will train our girls on how to be leaders. Although it is a national program, we have been using this model for years at Greater Newark Girls Golf. Nicole Eager, who is now a sophomore in college, coordinated our Pitch and Putt program while she was also a member of Girls Golf while in High School. Each month we award the eLeader of the Month to the girls most involved. Congrats to all. It is your dedication to Girls Golf that makes this program a success.
