The Estero High School Girls Golf team chose Estero Country Club to practice their swing and strengthen their skills this season and all of their hard work has certainly paid off!
The Girl’s Golf team dominated the Districts and played a nail biting game at Regionals. After finishing second at the Districts, hosted at the Vineyards Country Club’s South, the team moved on to Regionals at Golf Hammock Golf Club in Sebring. The game was rousing, but even though the team will not be advancing to State, player Kim Egozi will move on to the State Finals as an individual. As if that wasn’t enough for these strong players, the team participated in a state wide tournament in Sebring last month and finished third! Estero High School has completed their dual meet season 11-1, as well as snagging the winning title as the Conference Championship.
The team has showed incredible strength and drive, both on and off the course. Estero Country Club’s not done with the season yet, though! Estero Country Club’s Assistant Golf Professional, Tom Donovan clear doesn’t get enough of golf at Estero Country Club, as he also coaches the Boys Golf Team at the Community School of Naples. The boy’s team recently finished second at Regionals and will be advancing to the State Finals, at the Mission Inn and Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills from Oct. 28-29.
Golf is a game for every age. From physical fitness to character growth, the game instills confidence, good sportsmanship, and courage. Particularly for the youth of southwest Florida, benefits of golf are endless.
Health and Wellness
Staying active and healthy outdoors is great advice for any age. For the youth, in particular, it is about instilling exercise and healthy activity as a habit. Develop the “Healthy Habit” now and it will become a lifelong passion. According to The First Tee, between playing golf, walking the course, and carrying your bag, a 150-pound person burns 350 calories and walks over 10,000 steps. Now, that’s healthy!
Quality Bonding Time
The hustle and bustle of the work week is a lot to deal with. Take some time to put away the phone, close your laptop, and spend quality time with the Junior Golfer in your life. Golf is a participatory sport that encourages perverseness, honesty, and courage.
