Juniors learning the game of golf

Youngsters received a taste of golf at the Junior Camp sponsored by the Whidbey Golf Club this week.

“The main goals of the camp are to give the kids the basic fundamentals of golf in a fun, safe environment,” Dave Phay, head pro at the club, said. “We want to give them enough to be able to go out on the course with their parents.”

Sebastian Kubat, Quintin McMillan and Nick Krantz helped Phay instruct the group of 20 campers.

“So far all of our kids and coaches have had a great time learning and teaching the game,” Phay said.

The campers went out on the course Friday to test what they learned.

“This is usually the most exciting time for the kids,” Phay said. “We also hope to have some of them graduate to our PGA Junior League for 2019.”
