As some readers may or may not know, Blair Academy boosts a beautiful nine hole golf course. The course is demanding, highly technical, and the host of the first PGA Blair.

Mickelson, Nicklaus, and Woods... Well not quite. Our participants Matt, Josh, and Mike lined up and took a few practice shots.

Posing for a group shot.

The course started out with a very challenging first hole.


Josh had to duck under a tree to make a tricky shot.

A beautiful view from the second hole.

The drive off the green was spectacular.
Matt sized up the green, Tiger Woods style.
The third hole, par 4.

Any experienced golfer knows you must check the wind before you tee off.

The fourth hole was a bit rough, but no match for the likes of Mike R, Josh, and Matt. They were really giving the counselors a run for their money.

What a shot!

The participants made it look easy on the fifth hole.

Counselor Dave M. showed off some effortless putting. Too bad he was just wide of the hole!

Counselor Jimmy C. tried to channel his inner Nicklaus and sink the shot, but still the campers could not be beat.

The campers were doing so well that they showed the counselors some mercy and only played 6 holes.

After a long day of golf, the PGA Blair came to a close and everyone walked back for announcements and lunch. Next stop Baltusrol!
