Bellevue, NE – Platteview Golf Club played host to the 2019 opening NJG TEAM GOLF event presented by Five Points Bank on Wednesday, May 29, 2019. Through 9-hole team competitions, TEAM GOLF serves as an introduction to tournament play for junior golfers, age 7-13. Designed to serve the beginning golfer with minimum experience, TEAM GOLF’s format can be played by anyone regardless of skill. TEAM GOLF helps young golfers learn the game with a set of beginner friendly rules such as no hazards, stroke limits, and the ability to drop a ball out of a bunker. Along with these rules, TEAM GOLF is also played through a scramble format allowing the golfers to have fun competing together as a team.
The Happy Hollow Club Heat scored 50 points to snag their first victory of the season. The Heat are coached by Director of Instruction, Ryan Vermeer, PGA. The champions of this event were Tommy Kelley, Jack Kelley, Cali Wisdom, Kate Kelley, Knox Pocras, and Michael Fahey. Finishing behind the HEAT in 2nd place was the Happy Hollow Club Blaze and in 3rd place it was the Ninjas out of Omaha Country Club. Each TEAM GOLF team is earning points all season long with the goal of reaching the 2019 TEAM GOLF Championship on Friday, August 9th at The Country Club of Lincoln.
Special thanks to our season long presenting sponsor, Five Points Bank and to host PGA Professional, Jon Moore, PGA as well as the entire Platteview Golf Club staff for hosting such an incredible event.
