March 31, 2016   ·   0 Comments

The Shelburne Golf and Country Club is well known for its Junior Golf program led by golf pro and coach Sam Young.

Each year Young takes his Advanced Junior Golf Team to Pinehurst, North Carolina for spring training

The team has made the trek to Pinehurst for 17 straight years.

Prior to leaving, the team has been working out at Peak Performance – a high tech indoor facility in Vaughan – to get ready for Pinehurst and the upcoming season.

The team members played between 11 and 14 rounds depending on their arrival and departure at the historic golf club.

The team was lead by Isaac Maxwell, who won the $100 prize from Coach young for breaking 70.

Isaac posted a 67 at the difficult Tobacco Road course and a 69 at Southern Pines Golf club in his final Pinehurst round as a Junior Team member.

There were a number of personal bests on the fairways during the week which bodes well for the upcoming season.

This is especially important for both the Bantam Boys and Girls as the Ontario Bantam Championship will be held at the Shelburne Club this coming August.

The Junior Team members include Ethan Lawson, Carter Moroney, Ranen Oomen Danckert, Kiefer Oomen Danckert, Coach Young, Isaac Maxwell, Ted Ferris, Maggie Jennings Campbell, Emily Harlond, Keirsten Spade, Madison Ouellette, and Morgan Rutledge.

Sam Young is well known for his work with junior golfers at the Shelburne Club and his program has turned out many highly competitive golfers.
