Friends of Bristol
Women’s League meeting date change: The meeting for all
women’s league teams will be Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 6:00 pm
— everyone involved with women’s league should plan to attend.
We are making a plea to all women who play at Bristol Ridge to
consider playing in women’s league. We need at least 12 teams to
allow the league to take over 9 holes of the course each Tuesday
evening and make it a viable option for Bristol Ridge. Anyone
interested in forming a team, or any single who would like to be
added to a team should contact Tom at 715-247-3673 or Women’s
League director Tracy Duppong at 651-815-9644.

Professional at Bristol Ridge…
PLEASE NOTE: The Junior Program will begin one week
later than listed in the Bristol Ridge brochure due to
weather-related issues. It will run Wednesday mornings
from June 18 to July 30.
JUNIOR PROGRAM: It was a great year for our Junior
Program in 2013. We hope that all the kids will be back (except
for the graduated seniors) but we’re also looking for even
greater participation so please talk it up. Tell your friends!
For families with more than one child in the program I will
offer a $5 per child discount.
This Junior Program is a great way for your child to get started
right in this wonderful lifelong sport. We’ve kept the prices
the same (and very reasonable) for many years now. We know that
with summer vacations some kids may miss a week or two but at
these prices the program is still a great value.
FREE MEMBERS-ONLY CLINIC: Even the very best players in
the world start each season by reviewing the basics. I would
like to offer up my help with a FREE members-only group clinic
on Friday, May 2. Let’s get a good start to the season by
spending an hour on the range going over the grip, stance,
posture and fundamentals of the full swing. This will help us
each focus on the things that will result in better play and
ADULT BEGINNER GROUP: Do you have any friends or family
members who would like to start playing golf? One of my favorite
jobs as an instructor is helping with this. I’d like to form a
beginner group (10-12 players) to meet one day a week for four
weeks. This would give us time for one session on the full swing
with the ball on a tee (driver), a session on irons, one on
chipping and putting and one on the basics of playing the game.
In a small group format I could keep the price at $50 per person
for all four sessions! Possible dates and times would include
Friday evenings May 9, 16, 23 and 30 or Sunday mornings May 4,
11, 18 and 25. Please call me ASAP at 715-557-1120 or
715-483-9612 if you’re interested so we can set a schedule.
NEW THIS YEAR – PLAY WITH THE PRO! Join
me at 12:00 noon on Wednesdays in June and July. Play 9 holes
for $75 or 18 holes for $125.
To sign up for any of the above programs call Leif directly
at 715-557-1120 or 715-483-9612.
