Summer golf in full swing
Grade school golfers were out on the driving range last week, the first week of the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD summer golf program.
Coach Tina Doan said she had about 60 boys and girls sign up for the program, which runs through the week of June 20 at the Reeves County Golf Course. Doan and former Pecos Eagle golfer Lauren Martinez are serving as instructors for the course.
“We are going to have a little tournament on the 21st and 22nd, and I’ll get notices out as to who plays when,” Doan said.
She said most of the golfers in the program are elementary school players. “I think of the first graders and second graders we have about 14-17. We don’t have as many in the high school group, due to a few of the who are playing in the Northwest Texas Junior Tournament group.
“We have a few junior high golfers who have shown up. I think 10 showed up in eighth grade through high school, so we ought to have a really good turnout overall in every group,” Doan said. “A lot of the kids are back from last year, and you can see their improvement.”
The tournament coming up in two weeks will be anywhere from two to nine holes on the main course. But before then, Doan had the golfers working out on the driving range during the first days of the class.
“We’re dividing them into chipping and putting, and we’ll take them out in groups. We won’t take them out onto the course until we’ve worked on that,” she said.
