Golf Background

Golf has always been present in my life, but I did not fall in love with the game until the end of Elementary school. Once I knew we joined Orchard Lake Country Club, my life  changed for the better. At first, I was unsure that I wanted to play golf. However, by the end of the summer Tuesday was my favorite day of the week because that was golf day. After that summer, all I could think about was golf. The junior golf program fostered my commitment to the game. Without the junior golf program, I would not be the golfer that I am today. As a result of the Orchard Lake Country Club junior golf program, I now devote my life to three main areas: family, school, and golf.
