Junior Golf: Go Green-Enjoy St Patrick’s Day

This Friday Flop Shot will be a quick reminder that today is St Patrick’s Day and green is an appropriate color to wear. (image offcoursegolf.com)img_0106-1

Green has several meanings besides just being a color. For us golfers, green has environmental implications as well as being a beautiful part of the scenery on the golf course. 1 of the things that my Dad emphasized to me starting at a very young age, was always leave the environment cleaner than you found it. Whether it was hunting, fishing or on the golf course, we always picked up trash and most of the time it was somebody else’s trash. (image Hooked: Ireland’s Golf Courses)

Take some time over the weekend to celebrate “green”. Get outdoors, breathe the fresh air and take your junior golfer with you. If you’re able to play golf together casually throw out a sentence or 2 about how great it is to be able to spend time with your son or daughter in such a pleasant setting. No big speech, just something like, “Son, it’s fun being able to spend some time with you. Isn’t the course in great shape? The staff have really done a super job. Let’s give them a big thumbs up!” There you go!

See you on #1 tee wearing some green… Samimage
