Golf legend Billy Casper visited Metacomet Elementary School in Bloomfield to talk to students participating in SNAG – Starting New At Golf – a program created by Wintonbury Hills Golf Course and the Bloomfield schools to introduce young kids to golf. Golf pros and employees of Wintonbury Hills and Metacomet phys-ed teacher Jim Varano teach basic skills using age-appropriate equipment.
“I think it’s just fantastic. It’s something that’s fun for them,” said Casper as he watched a group of third-grade boys and girls take their hacks with smiles and enthusiasm. (Quote via Steve Goode.)
