Friday's Favorites-- Golf Camp

Waiting for the tournament to start.
Yes, I have been away from the blog for several days. The kids love summer break because it's camp season, which is what we have been up to the last two weeks.

This week's Friday's Favorites features Michael's week of golf camp at Ruggles Ferry Golf. Michael attended camp last year and loved it. This year he thinks was even better.

Putting practice
He has two sets of clubs that were given to him by his high school aged friend, Caleb, who happens to be on the high school golf team.

Camp lasted three days, and they played a three hole tournament on the last day. They learned fundamentals, Michaels favorite part is the tournament.

I love golf camp because we have to drive within 15 minutes of the "big" city. Each day the girls and I went shopping, except for tournament day when the girls decided they wanted to stay and caddy.

Some of the other teams weren't as excited about Michael's group having caddies. But that's what happens when you have great sisters who want to help.

Michael isn't what I consider to be your typical golfer. He doesn't dress the part, he isn't there to impress, and he talks to Coach Lauren even when he is supposed to be quiet.

Golf is great for Michael because he can hang out with other boys his age, learn a good sport, and he is doing something that his sisters aren't. Although Maggie wants to sign up for camp in July. He was invited to attend semi-private lessons this summer and he thinks that is "totally awesome."

While Michael came in fourth place this year, (last year he was second), he was still excited to have gotten to participate.

If you are looking for a good golf camp, there are still a few weeks in July that you can sign up for. Just contact Ruggles Ferry.

Stay tuned for the next Friday's Favorites about where we went to camp this week, Journey Camp.
