Top professional returns for golf camp

Anders Forsbrand will be the head instructor for a Junior Golf Camp at Glasson Hotel and Golf Club in Athlone during the Easter break. For the third consecutive year, young golfers from the area will have a unique opportunity to receive top quality coaching from Anders and his team. In 2004, Bernard Langer named Anders as his Vice-Captain for his victorious Ryder Cup team. Today, Anders trains the Austrian Golf Federation team players and is a frequent commentator for European Tour events on television. This year, he is also in the process of qualifying to play on the Senior Tour.

“I am excited to revisit Ireland and lead this camp. I look forward to seeing how the campers have improved,” Anders said. “Golf has taught me a lot and I want to pass on what I have learnt to the next generation.”

The ‘Unleash the Power’ Junior Golf Camp (18-21 April, 2011) has been organised as a partnership between local charity OM Ireland, FCA Golf (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) and Glasson Hotel and Golf Club. Open to golfers age 12-18 from local clubs, the camp will cost just €95 for four days of instruction and play (€135 to include catered lunch). In addition to professional instruction, each day participants will also focus on life lessons, which explore characteristics like honesty, openness, perspective, and experience. Coaches will share from their own personal experience as golfers and use principles from the Bible.

“OM Ireland is delighted to welcome back Anders and the team this year. We believe that young people need not only need to be taught good values, but they also need to see positive role models,” explained OM Ireland Director Mike Mullins. “Anders Forsbrand is a Christian and in my opinion, he is an excellent role model for these teenagers.”

In addition to the golf camp, Anders Forsbrand will run an open golf clinic at Roscommon Golf Club on Wednesday, 20 April at 6 pm. For further details you can contact Dax Bryant 086 261 8868 or Trevor Hill on (087) 7926602.
