Weekly Berkshire County Junior Golf Schedule Set

Community submissionPrint Story | Email Story
The Berkshire County Junior Golf Program is open to boys and girls who are members of an Allied Golf Club and between the ages of 11‑18.
 
The participants compete in divisions determined by their age. Categories include 13 and under, 14 and 15, and 16 and over. There are six events to be held on Mondays throughout the summer with registration at the host club scheduled from 8 to 8:30 a.m. and a shotgun start at 9. There will be optional tee times starting at 8:30 .
 
The host club will provide a short clinic on either the rules of golf or golf etiquette before players begin, providing there is time. The fee is $10 to 15 per player, which covers prizes and lunch. The field is limited to 90 players. It is important that the boys and girls sign up at their respective home clubs in advance and that their golf professional call their names and ages into the host club by the Friday before the event.
 
Proper Golf attire is required. A point system is in place for participation in these events to help determine the champion for the various age divisions, therefore it is equally important that the participant notify the host club if they cannot play, which will allow someone else an opportunity and not invoke the deduction in points required for not showing up.
 
This year’s events are to begin on July 8 and held at the following locations: Wahconah Country Club, July 8; Greenock Country Club, July 15; Stockbridge Golf Club, July 22; Worthington Golf Club, July 29; Egremont Country Club, Aug. 5; Waubeeka Golf Links, Aug. 12, the Berkshire County Allied Junior Championship.

Baker Pushes Back on Federal Pressure to Open Schools

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires.com
BOSTON -- Gov. Charlie Baker Wednesday said he does not think it “makes sense” for a one-size-fits-all approach to reopening the nation’s public schools but stopped short of directly criticizing a presidential tweet pressuring states to open the schoolhouse doors in the middle of a global pandemic.
 
Baker was asked in his daily press availability about President Trump’s Tuesday Twitter statement that indicated his administration “May cut off funding if [schools] not open!”
 
The Republican governor, not for the first time during the COVID-19 pandemic, found himself having to argue against his party’s leader while trying to not get into a feud with the leader of the free world.
 
The first question from the press at Wednesday’s briefing was about Trump’s Tuesday statements.
