You can learn a lot of important life lessons from the game of golf. Respect, patience, and good sportsmanship are just a few of the characteristics that the Tom Sager Golf Academy will try to instill in the children who will be participating this summer. Eight children from the Lawrence and Methuen YMCAs are participating in the academy, which takes place at Renaissance Golf Club in Haverhill.
The Tom Sager Golf academy is a joint venture of the Merrimack Valley YMCA, Renaissance Golf Club, and the Sager Family Trust. It was started in 2011 in memory of Tom Sager, an avid golfer who passed away in 2009. Barbara Sager says she hopes the experience will have a positive, lifelong effect on the kids.
