Shelter Island Country Club’s inaugural Owen N. Dickson Junior Golf Program was a great success during the summer of 2022. The program consisted of 15 youth, aged 7-16.
The program ran for 5 weeks, beginning on Tuesday, July 12th. The weather cooperated each week with the youth learning new skills and playing the course.
The Board would like to thank Susan and Anthony Schiano for their generous donation in memory of Owen N. Dickson, to support the creation of this highly successful program.
Thank you to our golf instructors, Bob DeStefano, Fr. Peter DeSanctis and the club’s teaching pro Eric Schultzel, along with the many volunteers that assisted along the way whether teaching on a Tuesday or with the organization of the program.
We look forward to the 2023 golf season with our Junior Golf Program starting its second season. Please check back on our website in early 2023 for the program application.
