SCOUTS EARN THE GOLF MERIT BADGE

Categories: News

Along with many other requirements, Boy Scouts must complete a minimum of 21 merit badges to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. Chapter Coach Rick Hengstenberg, PGA taught the golf merit badge to local Scouts in November at Scout Advancement Weekend (SAW) held at Tanah Keeta, the local Scout Camp in Tequesta.

At SAW, the Scouts learned about the history of the game, rules, etiquette, golf skills and golf fundamentals. After lunch, the Scouts spent the rest of the day playing golf at River Bend Golf Club. They learned that pace of play, raking footprints in bunkers and filling divots are all part of being a responsible golfer.

A big SHOUT OUT to River Bend and their members for making this program a success!!
