Bruce Davenport, treasurer, Optimist Club of Victoria shared some pictures this week of youngsters enjoying golf and lunch and basically having fun. Tell me more, I said.
It turns out that the Victoria Optimist Club sponsors an inner city golf program that lets young people experience a sport normally unavailable to them. Through golf, the youngsters also learn personal courtesy and discipline along with skills required.
A golf pro donated his time and gave instructions to the junior golfers and Optimist Club members were available on the course as mentors. It looks like they also got to enjoy the pizza party afterwards!
Thanks for sharing the story, Bruce!
