Young golfers will get the opportunity to learn the fundamental of the game next week at the Sylacauga Country Club. Professional Golf Professional Brenton Boozer will be the instructor for the Junior Golf Clinic on July 7-11 from 8-11 a.m.
“We will host a clinic for kids for ages 11-16,”Sylacauga Country Club general manager Doyle Blankenship said. “The cost for the attendee is $100 for non-members and $ 75 for members. It will be carried on by Brenton Boozier, a PGA Professional. “
PGA Professional Brenton Boozer has been a PGA Professional for 15 years.
“I started in 1996,”Boozer said. “I got my PGA card in 1999. My first job was at Anniston Country Club, I grew up in Jacksonville. I moved from Anniston to Pensacola Florida for a couple of year. I did my longest time at Hoover Golf Club in Birmingham, then the Gadsden Country Club and Timberland. I have been at Timberland for 10 years and that is in Calera. I just recently stopped working there and kind of help out at Sylacauga Country Club with teaching and other aspects of their operation. It is a great clinic for beginners that want to come and learn golf.”
Boozer said the clinic participants will learn every stage of the game during the five day clinic.
“We will learn all phases of the game of golf,” Boozer said. “We will be learning grips, stance, posture, the rules of golf, a full swing and a short game. It will be a full clinic for five days.”
The Country Club held a clinic in June for kids between the ages of 5-10. He said the clinic with the younger kids was a success.
“It is the same exact clinic, but it is a different age group,” Blankenship said.” We break them up into groups by age levels and skill levels.”
Blankenship said that they try to hold clinics fairly often at the Sylacauga Country Club.
“We try to do this as regularly as we can,” Blankenship said. “We don’t have the staff to do it all the time, but we do this on a pretty regular basis.”
Blankenship believes that there will be a good turnout for the clinic.
“In the last clinic that we held we had 12 (kids) with Jordan Hardy,” Blankenship said. “We have been averaging between 12-16 kids.”
Registration for the camp is open until Monday morning. For more information contact Brenton Boozer at (205) 477-1712 or the Sylacauga Country Club at (256) 249-8075.
