Every semester, Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy students give back to their home golf training facility by spending a day working on the golf course! This October, all Full-Time Program Students spent their Sunday caring for the Las Colinas golf course.
Students spent the day filling divots on the fairway with sand mixture and repairing ball marks on the greens. “This is an opportunity for the students to show how much they care about their training facilities.” says Bryan Mulry, Director of Golf. “This is another demonstration of these student’s professionalism and integrity.”
Mission Inn Resort & Club in Howey-in-the-Hills, FL features two award-winning golf courses, El Campeón and Las Colinas, and is home to GGGA’s private training facility. The 36 holes of exceptional and challenging play is where GGGA students train like champions and once a semester: take care like champions!
This fall semester course care is important as it allows the grass to recuperate from use. Students helped repair pitch marks, divots and damaged spots while taking steps to help maintain healthy grass growth. This is an opportunity for students to work together as a team to give back to their home course.
