This was the content for introduction of Golf Program in Schools to the Montgomery, AL County Golf Club; Lagoon Park.
We have a unique opportunity to impact the lives of the children and the families of this community.
The game of golf & the engagement in golf as a sport & business offers up incredible opportunity for young people.
Those of us who have been around the game are familiar with how golf is so impactful in our lives,
… so much so that it has been said that golf, even, imitates life, right!?
How many of us have said, "Man, I wish I had begun playing golf when I was younger?" Huh?
Golf Program in Schools offers every Middle-Schooler in this County to be introduced to this game for free in their Middle-School gymnasium during their PE class for 4 days in one week.
The students then are offered a Field trip to Lagoon Park & Gateway GC's for an on-course experience on the fifth day.
Students are encouraged to fill out our online survey following that 5th day.
If they fill it out & are interested in more golf experiences, they become Junior Members of Lagoon Park & Gateway GC's for free until they graduate from High School.
They play free at the course as long as they bring a paying family member or adult friend.
This program continues every week inside every Middle-School in the county and into the next year & the next year, and so on.
We will have Camps & Clinics & individual training for those who want to get better & this for a modest price.
There will be an online community for the Junior Member as well with instruction, golf swing analysis, golf games & trivia in order to encourage the parents & kids to get more involved in our Lagoon Park Junior Program & golf.
There will be a similar online community for our Junior Golfer parents as well..
We are building the Lagoon Park & Gateway GC's Golf Academy as we progress.
Can you imagine how many Junior students & competitive players we will grow through this program?
Can you see how many golf instructors will be necessary in the future to teach all of these students?
Can you see how this program can become self-sustaining with the number of moderately priced group & individual lessons conducted at the Academy & the increase of rounds played at Lagoon Park & Gateway GC's?
Our goal is 20,000 kids introduced to golf each year through this program in this community.
Our model calls for paid Academy staff as group & individual lessons grow.
This is incredible, right?
Present the GPS Power Point Presentation!
Pretty amazing, right..
But, it gets better;
What if we introduced these young golfers to the most important role model & life-impacting person in all of Creation?
Who might that be?
"Who is the most important person a child or any of us can learn about??
Proverbs 30:19-20 says;
So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, 20 by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding close to Him; for ***this is your life***
Loving the Lord your God
Obeying His voice
Holding close to Him
… for THIS IS YOUR LIFE..
and the length of your days,
Colossians 3:4 says; "When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. - Colossians 3:4 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Colossians3:4&version=NIV
2 Peter 3:18 says; "But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen."
Through the Child Evangelism Fellowship organization we will introduce every student to Him...
...at the golf course during their Field Day.
Each student has the choice to opt-out of this station at the golf course, but, THIS is LIFE'S answer, not golf.
Jesus Christ said, when he was telling Thomas & His other disciples; "I am THE Way, THE Truth & THE Life. No one comes to the Father, but by me.
He is our LIFE! Paul, the great Apostle said, "I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me." Galatians 2:20 https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/Life-Is-In-Christ
THIS is Golf Program in Schools!
THIS is the GPS unique sales proposition.
We introduce the game of golf & the TRUE LIFE in Christ to our young people here in our community.
Is this important?
What other solutions are there to the social plagues here in our community?
These are the roles we will be discussing to fill.....
What we need, now....
East Coast Director of Golf Program in Schools
We have a passion for this game, golf, don't we?
We don't need to dig deeply into the game, what it has accomplished across the world for good. From the smallest child engaging with a Wally Armstrong "Air Golf Flyer" to a 90 year old man shooting his age for the umpteenth time this game strikes us to our souls. It so imitates life, doesn't it?
Trying to follow the Lord's will regarding ministry and the platform of golf.
