PORTER CORNERS — Brookhaven Golf Course’s Head Golf Professional Anthony Therrien has been named one of the “top 10 PGA Jr. captains” by PGA.com.
The website, which represents the national golf professional association of more than 29,000 golf professionals and the leading experts on the game of golf, identified Therrien in its article “Ten PGA Jr. League Captains Who Inspired a Decade of Dominance” on Nov. 3.
The article, written in celebration of the PGA Jr. League’s 10th Anniversary, celebrated the “rock star coaches who are the lifeblood of the program” that involved more than 64,000 kids nationally this year. Therrien’s PGA Jr. League had two teams with 24 kids this year, boys and girls ages 8-13 years old. The teams participated in 12 tournaments at Brookhaven and throughout the region. The Town of Greenfield also held “Learn to Golf” weekly sessions for approximately 100 kids over four weeks this summer. Brookhaven is one of the only local courses to offer free golf for ages 17 and under.
Sign-ups for the 2022 PGA Jr. League and summer lessons begin in February. Therrien plans to add a PGA Jr. U17 program, for children 4-17, as well as adult clinics and a number of both recreational and competitive tournaments.
