Har-Bur Middle School - GOLF INFORMATION – Fall 2016

 

Golf is a challenging, non-competitive, lifetime sport that can be enjoyed by everyone regardless of size, speed, etc. We are very excited to offer our students the opportunity to go to Burlington Golf Center and Fairview Farms to hone their golf skills. We expect to have about 20 students who will pay $8 per session to alternately travel on to Fairview Farms and to Burlington Golf Center ($16 per week for both). We have designed this program to give our students in Grades 5-8 a positive and fun after school activity.  Golfers of all levels are welcome but we will be grouping students by skill. This kind of grouping makes the instructional piece of the club more effective.   Students must sign up for both days and cannot be missing a school sport. We cannot give refunds for missed days.

We will travel by school bus to Fairview Farms Golf Course, located at 300 Hill Road in Harwinton. We will be here from about 3:20- 4:50 p.m. Their phone number is 860-689-1000, and their website is www.fairviewfarmgc.com. We will travel by a different school bus to Burlington Golf Center, located on Route #4, 522 Spielmann Highway, near the old Johnnycake Mountain Airport. We will be here from about 3:00- 4:30. In case of emergency their phone number is 860-675-7320 and the website is www.burlingtongolfcenter.com. Please notice the different start and end times.

Students will get instruction and practice time for 1.5 hours. We will have the students bring their clubs to school in the morning. (If students do not have clubs, we can lend them some.) Clubs will be transported by the teachers to the courses.  Students will go on a school bus to the facility and will need to be picked up at the facility by their parents/ guardians.  This will occur starting September 13 and run for 6 weeks - through mid-October. Burlington has an indoor facility that can be used even when the weather is not cooperating, but Fairview will be more weather dependent.   Applications are going to be accepted until September 8th.  If more than 20 students apply, students who have participated in the past will get priority.  After that students will be chosen by lottery, with an attempt to distribute this opportunity for all grades. Please send in the attached permission slip to sign up.  

Snacks are not provided but students can bring something with them. Students are allowed to buy refreshments at both facilities but will need cash.

In order to group children by skill we need some starting information.  We will have students who are just learning and we have others who have taken lessons for years.  It is not an issue either way but they will learn more and have more fun if they do get the support they need at the level they need it.
