Birch Ridge Golf Report: 24 youngsters learn the basics of golf at Birch Ridge Golf Course

"Hook a Kid on Golf" is underway with 24 kids partaking in a program that teaches the basics of golf and allows students to continue with their golf education. The program is free and is sponsored by the Birch Ridge Golf Association and the Boys and Girls Club. The 24 junior golfers were selected by lottery from 47 applicants. There have been a few golfers that began playing at Birch Ridge at a young age and today work in the golf industry. Chances are there is one in the program underway this week.

Everybody knows your name

I was sitting on the deck at the pro shop on a sunny afternoon with a friend realizing that the golf course is not just a place where people go to play golf, but it is a part of the community. One of our up-and-coming girl junior golfers, Ava Gabler, showed up with her friend to hit balls and practice. I had not seen Ava since this past spring and it gave me an opportunity to visit and find out what she was going to be doing over the summer months, besides golfing, of course.

Birch Ridge Golf Report: 'Hook a Kid on Golf' program attracts several youngsters to Birch Ridge

After a week of "Hook a Kid on Golf," we've now got more than 40 kids participating in the Junior Golf Clinic. The junior golfers are fortunate to have not only course pros Tom Walsh and Bill Engberg providing guidance, but also former Birch Ridge Junior Golfer Aaron Dexheimer. Aaron holds a few records on Alaska golf courses, including the course record at Birch Ridge and winning the Alaska State Amateur in 2000. Aaron is now a touring pro playing in pro golf tournaments in Alaska, California and the Pacific Northwest.

Nostalgia abounds at course

There has been a lot of nostalgia around the golf course for me these past few weeks. Last week was the Junior Golf Clinic. An amazing 43 juniors turned out to learn from the pros - Tom Walsh, Bill Engberg and Nolan Rose - and pick up some pointers. On Friday I watched the parents as they observed and walked with their junior golfers. It brought back fond memories of the times when I accompanied my junior golfer around the course as he played in various tournaments.

Birch Ridge Golf Report: Course greening up at Birch Ridge

While the temperatures have yet to warm up, things sure have been greening up. The rains have been beneficial with everything looking fantastic. Work crews just completed plugging and seeding the greens. I expect to see these in fine shape in a few short weeks.
