The Kevin Haime Junior Golf Initiative has partnered with Flagstick Golf Magazine and Flagstick.com to present a new feature for 2017, the Kevin Haime Junior Golfer Of The Month.
Kevin and Lisa Haime founded the Kevin Haime Junior Golf Initiative to enhance the golfing opportunities for young people in the community. It also helps them to develop into community members who contribute greatly to the world around them. This new Kevin Haime Junior Golfer of The Month Program continues that mission.
“We’re thrilled to be launching the Kevin Haime Junior Golfer of the Month program with our good friends from Flagstick,” says Kevin Haime on behalf of himself and Lisa Haime. Flagstick has been a strong supporter of our Junior Golf Initiative since its infancy a decade ago now.”
Haime continues about why they are expanding their Initiative, which has provided more than 500 golf memberships for junior golfers and supported other programs.
“It’s up to all of us to pay it forward within this great game of ours. Lisa and I started this initiative to give back and to give kids a place to play.
We’ve seen amazing things happen when you get kids involved in golf and give them opportunities. We know that creating more opportunities will create more success stories and that’s a really good thing.”
Prospective winners (ages 9-17) will be asked to apply and share detail of their involvement with golf and why they should be the “Kevin Haime Junior Golfer of the Month.” Four golfers will be chosen to coincide with the next four Flagstick Golf Magazine print issues that come out during the 2017 golf season.
Flagstick Golf Magazine Publisher Jeff Bauder and Associate Publisher Scott MacLeod will assess the applications and choose the juniors who will be recognized.
Each chosen junior golfer will be highlighted in both Flagstick Golf Magazine and at Flagstick.com.
They will also be awarded a $500 bursary from the Kevin Haime Junior Golf Initiative to help support their golfing goals, whether that be coaching, equipment, golf fees, or tournament and travel expenses.
“Since we started publishing in 1996 we have strived to do as much as possible to support Junior golf through a variety of programs and sponsorships, pairing up with the Kevin Haime Junior Golf Initiative for this new feature falls in line with that,” says Jeff Bauder, Publisher of Flagstick. “We hope the bursaries will go a long way to helping young members of our community achieve their golf dreams.”
