After reviewing countless outstanding applications for the 2013 U.S. Kids Golf Top 50 Kids Teacher Award, I am pleased to inform you that you have been selected as an Honorable Mention recipient.
This year's applicant pool was the largest and strongest ever, and your selection as an Honorable Mention recipient recognizes your commitment to youth golf and the impact of your program. From the record-setting pool of nearly 750 applicants, the U.S. Kids Golf Foundation Committee has recognized 150 instructors – 50 earned the Top 50 Kids Teacher Award and 100 instructors earned Honorable Mention accolades. Additionally, the Committee created a new award that honors facilities with outstanding junior programs. Recipients of this award will be announced later this spring.
Given the strength of your application, we encourage you to re-apply for the Top 50 Kids Teacher Award in the future.
Again, we appreciate the time and effort you devoted to the Top 50 Kids Teacher Award application process. Thank you for your dedication to teaching the game of golf to our youth.
We wish you continued success in 2014!
Dan Van Horn
President, U.S. Kids Golf Foundation
