Come Celebrate Summer at
The Links at Mass Golf
A Day for the Kids
GCSANE and Mass Golf partner to present “Build a Green Day” on June 26, 2019 at The Links at Mass Golf. The day will feature MAS Golf Course Construction and Renovation as founder Matt Staffieri and his staff will actually construct a new practice putting green. Matt has an extensive background in golf course construction and renovation including “the dramatic changes made to TPC Boston for the 2007 Deutsche Bank Championship.” We are very fortunate and grateful to have Matt contribute his time and resources to this cause.
Along with MAS Golf Construction and Renovation, Kevin Doyle and the First Green program from GCSAA will be in attendance. First Green is an innovative environmental and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education outreach program using golf courses as environmental learning labs. Golf Course Superintendents and/or local golf course representatives host students on field trips where they test water quality, collect soil samples, identify plants, design plantings assist in stream bed restoration and are involved in the ecology and environmental aspects of the golf course. The students are introduced to many other aspects of golf.
In addition, we are very excited to be joined by students participants and staff of the The First Tee program of Massachusetts. As the home of The First Tee of Massachusetts, The Links at Mass Golf provides many instructional programs for junior golfers throughout the year. From spring and summer programs, to after-school opportunities, the staff at The Links at Mass Golf continues to introduce children of all ages to the game of golf by providing programs that focus on core values and life skills while keeping the game fun and making sure everyone enjoys the game.enjoyable for all.
This event is free of charge and we would like to encourage all those that attend to bring their children and grandchildren to celebrate the start of Summer at The Links at Mass Golf. There will be a kid friendly/optional 3-hole golf round (golf is not required, all ages are encouraged to attend–and equipment is available for use!), a closest to the hole contest, putting contest, T- shirts, hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza and much more.
