Over the past few weeks I have been getting some great feedback and I want to spend some time today addressing one of the topics that was mentioned to me. One of my past students suggested that f should discuss how the Chester High School golf team did this year. For those of you who do not know, I was the head coach of the CHS goff team this year. This season the team took first place in the Feather River League with a perfect 7-0 record. After successfully completing the regular season, the team traveled down to Gold Hills Golf Course in Redding to compete in the Division III section championship. It was a difficult day and the team finished in third place behind Durham and Trinity High School. That was the end of the season for the team, but not the end for two of our players. On Tuesday, May 13, Wyatt Durkin and Jeremiah White were part of an elite group of High School golfers who made it to the NSCIF masters tournament at Bailey Creek. They qualified to do so by placing in the top five at the Division III championship the prior week. Again, it'was a difficult day of golf for the Volcanoes, but they held their heads high and finished their respective rounds with pride. Looking back on this season, I could not be more proud of how the team played. We had four players on the team that were complete beginners when the season started. Each week the team traveled with six players and each week we had two first-year golfers playing on the team. It was a true building year and I am really excited to see what they can do next year. I would like to acknowledge Wyatt Durkin PRO'S CORNER RONNIE THEOBALD who led the league and the team for the 2014 season as the Feather River League MVP. I would also like to acknowledge Jeremiah White and Quinton Wilkinson who were all-league selections. In order to preserve the future of high school golf programs, you really need to make sure your child gets involved with golf at an early age. Talk to your local PGA professional and find out about junior lessons, or, better yet, enroll your kids in a junior golf camp this summer. For those of you interested in summer golf camps, Bailey Creek will be hosting its annual junior golf camps on the following dates: June 16 - 19 for ages 5 - 9 and June 23 - 26 for ages 10 - 17. The cost is $110 per child. The camps will take place between 3 and 5:30 p.m. each day and include basic golf instruction, from full swing to chipping and putting. Camp will be three days of instruction and a fourth day of playing on the course. Snacks and drinks will be provided dally. Each child will receive a camp gift and a pass for a round of golf. For more information or to sign up, please call Bailey Creek at 259-4653. Thanks to Dave Aiken for this week's suggestion and I hope to see you all next week for another installment of the Pro's Corner. Ronnie Theobald is the PGA head golf professional at Bailey Creek Golf Course in Lake Almanor. To inquire about private lessons or to ask a question email Righerro. Next week's game will be the Hatfields and McCoys, followed by a luncheon meeting.
