News From Centennial Acres
This past summer Centennial Acres Golf Course offered a golf camp for any interested youth golfers. Once again it was well attended and the kids learned a lot about the game and improved their skills. Pictured below are Beau and Elliott (no last names were provided) who had perfect attendance at the golf camp. As a result they each received some brand new golf clubs thanks to an anonymous generous benefactor.
