Students from the Houston Secondary School gather for a group photo at the end of the golf season.

Houston Secondary School students hit the green

Houston Secondary School golf program engaged 12 students in learning, practicing and playing golf this autumn.

Twelve students at Houston Secondary School spent many afternoons this autumn learning, practicing, and playing golf.

They had enrolled in Houston Secondary’s new Active Living: Golf Component for students in grades 9-12.

Two to three times a week they travelled to Willow Grove Golf Course to receive instruction in essential parts of the game;  these included basic swing mechanics, practice routines, chipping, putting, bunker-play, and appropriate golf course etiquette.

When not practicing on the driving range or putting green they played the golf course, rotating through different playing partners each session.

The golfers were blessed with the greatest autumn weather in recent memory and Willow Grove remained in great shape right through their last trip to the course on October 16.

Special thanks go out to Bonnie and Ray Edgar, owners and operators of the course, who helped facilitate the secondary school use of the Willow Grove Golf and Country Club.
