  • Practice makes perfect for Brunswick golfers

    The long hot summer is drawing to a close and it’s time to work on your game.

    I don’t care whether you play the piano or bowl. I don’t care whether you paint portraits or play tennis, practice will help. 

    With practice, your fingers will move with confidence over the keyboard; your brush strokes will coax out that hint of a smile you are trying to capture on the face of a child. Practice in bowling will bring more strikes your way; in tennis, you will score more aces.

  • The Nine Core Values of The First Tee: Courtesy

    The First Tee program fosters nine core values to be used in the game of golf and which come in handy in all other areas of life. These core values have caused parents and teachers alike to embrace the First Tee program.

    This article highlights courtesy: considerate behavior toward others; a polite remark or gesture.

    A round of golf should begin and end with a handshake between fellow competitors. Players also should be still and quiet while others are preparing and performing a shot.
