Junior Golf Foundation of SXM recipient of Golf Channel Gift

St. Maarten Cable TV presented volunteer coaches and members of the Junior Golf Foundation of St. Maarten with Golf Channel clip on pouches that included Golf Channel branded tees and a ball marker.


"Whenever we can use our affiliation with a programmer, which in this case is Golf Channel, and foundations that are making a difference in our community, we reach out to the programmers and most of the time they are more than willing to assist", Beulah Jonis, Managing Director of St. Maarten Cable TV stated.

"Thanks to the sustained support of our sponsors and the Mullet Bay Golf Course we are now entering our 8th year of bringing the sport of golf to St. Maarten youth with no fees", Volunteer coach Jim Rosen remarked.

The Junior Golf Foundation of St. Maarten has classes every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the Emilio Wilson Estate from 3:30 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. for children from ages 7 to 15. Currently the program has 40 students and the coordinators anticipate that they will have 60 students by the end of the month. The objective of this foundation is to promote youth development through the sport of golf. Any parent interested in signing up their child or children can contact Jim Rosen at 587-7682 or e-mail: ji*******@ho*****.com

Golf Channel (Ch. 217) was recently added to the St. Maarten Cable TV lineup as part of the Bronze package in an ongoing effort of channel expansion since the company switched to an all- digital platform this spring. For those who would like to become more involved in the sport, Golf Channel provides two programs for beginners. The first show is called School of Golf on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. The subject of golf is taught by Martin Hall. Each week the assignment is to improve your game. Along with teaching assistant, Holly Sonders, Martin covers everything from tee to green while answering viewer questions. Another interesting program appears on Golf Channel on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. It’s provides subscribers with the chance to learn golf from some of the finest players to ever play the game including hall-of-famers Greg Norman, Annika Sorenstam, Lanny Wadkins and Tony Jacklin. Their goal is to teach the skills and strategies that helped them win.
