Local golf professional, Tom Rosati, will lead the Great River Camp

Sacred Heart University’s recently acquired golf course—Great River Golf Club in Milford, has been selected by PGA Junior Golf Camps as a host site for its junior golf camps this summer. The addition of Great River Golf Club is part of a significant national expansion plan, which will place the camps at 75+ nationwide locations. The camp will be led by local golf professional, Tom Rosati, PGA.

“We are thrilled to have been selected as a camp location. In that the PGA of America is known for its expertise in golf instruction and growing the game of golf, the camps will be primed as the go-to destination for quality junior golf instruction this summer.  I am excited to be able to offer the finest junior golf camps to the young golfers of our community,” Rosati says.

All PGA Junior Golf Camps are led by PGA Professionals and designed for juniors of all skill levels. The camps’ curriculum allows kids to learn the game in a fun, supportive environment, following a unique progression development track that focuses on promoting fundamental golf skills, including full swing, putting and chipping—as well as life and character skills, such as good sportsmanship, camaraderie and integrity.

“PGA Junior Golf Camps’ focus is on both golf skills and character development,” said PGA President Derek Sprague. “That, combined with the leadership of PGA professionals, is what makes them so successful. As the PGA celebrates its Centennial in 2016, we remain steadfast in our commitment to growing the game of golf, and these camps will help ensure the future of our sport.”
