BC Golf Tees Up LPGA Am Affiliation; Teaching Golf in The Covid World; Playing at Home
In this edition of British Columbia Golf’s newsletter, Golf Hall of Fame writer, Brad Ziemer, is making up for ‘lost time’ in his writing/reporting realm as we feature no less than 6 stories from Mr. Ziemer.
The subjects range from what teaching pros are doing to adapt to ‘social distancing’ and still being able to interact with students, to how the pandemic has affected both golf course facilities and many of BC’s top flight professionals.
We also have a very exciting announcement with respect to a new affiliation British Columbia Golf has with the LPGA Amateurs Golf Association, including 3 newly created chapter here in B.C.
And, as always, we are pleased to point out the continued success by BC’s best in the game of golf. This time it’s SFU Golf Coach Matthew Steinbach and the latest recognition he’s been given for his outstanding work with both the Women’s and Men’s golf squads from Burnaby Mountain.
Enjoy your golf and please stay safe,
