NLGC JUNIOR MEMBERSHIP ESSAY SCHOLARSHIP
Every April, NLGC offers a Junior Yearly Membership to a student entering 6th to 12th grade the following fall. Each applicant is asked to write a 200 word essay in response to the following statement: "Beyond the pure pleasure of the game of golf, it also serves to build character traits. Some of these traits include integrity, honor, respect, courtesy, sportsmanship, confidence, honesty, perseverance and self-esteem. Select TWO of these traits and tell us how these character traits would be enhanced in you, through your experience at Nippo Lake Golf Club.
COLE PERRA of Barrington is the winner of the 2018 Nippo Lake Junior Golf Membership Essay. Cole is a sophomore at Coe-Brown Northwood Academy. In his essay, Cole states, "Beyond playing with your friends, golf helps you develop character traits that will be beneficial to you as you get older." He discusses how perserverence on the course can help you push through life's storms and how sportsmanship can not only help his game, but himself. We look forward to seeing Cole sharpen his skills and traits on the course this year!
