Barbados continues to grow in stature as one of the best golf destinations in the world, and as Special Olympics Barbados looks to expand its sports programmes, golf is one of the strong options to consider. So when Keith Boyce, certified member of the Canadian Golf Teachers Federation, United States Golf Teachers Federation and World Golf Teachers Federation, offered to conduct a clinic for Special Olympics athletes, it was a ‘hole-in-one’ for the local organisation.
The Rockley Golf & Country Club has generously offered its facilities for the clinic, which will be held on October 2 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Boyce, who is also golf coach with Special Olympics Mississauga, Ontario, will introduce Barbados Special Olympics athletes to the sport.
“Most people think golf is only for the very rich, but it is a sport that anyone can play and enjoy,” he said.
Boyce will arrive in Barbados along with two of his Special Olympic golfers, Aaron Lindsay and Arthur Rea Jr. Aaron and Arthur are both looking forward to their visit to the island. They are also hoping to play some games with Barbadian golfers while they are here, especially youth golfers. Those interested in arranging a game with Aaron and Arthur can contact Edward Thompson at 423 0967. (PR)
