BGC Sports Summer Golf Academy to Host Four Sessions at Kenosha Country Club

Carly Werwie Returns as Lead Instructor

Kenosha, WI – June 20, 2018 – For the first time, this summer’s BGC Sports Dr. Aiello and Dr. Perri Youth Golf Academy will host sessions at Kenosha Country Club, in addition to Washington Park Municipal Golf Course. The class kicked off today and will run on Wednesdays through August 15th. The last four sessions will be held at the Kenosha Country Club.

Kenosha Country Club President, Michael Burke, was glad to partner with the BGC Summer Golf Academy to get youth interested in and enjoying golf. He generously offered the practice facility, in hopes of getting youth golfers interested in KCC’s caddie program. First Assistant Golf Professional Tyler Wollberg said, “We’re happy to help and provide access to the facility. Anything to help youth golfers, we’re all for.”

Former professional golfer and Kenosha native, Carly Werwie, will return as the lead instructor of the program. Werwie is a former WIAA Division 1 State Golf Champion, played collegiate golf at UW-Madison where she recorded five top 20 finishes, and played for four years professionally on the Symetra Tour.

“I’m excited to work with all the junior golfers and help grow the game of golf in Kenosha,” said Werwie. “It’s so rewarding to see them improve and have fun all at the same time because golf truly is a lifelong sport.”

Other instructors to help with the class include James Petersen of the Kenosha Fire Department, Tom Befera, former Teaching Professional at Kenosha Country Club, Amy Holm, Dean of Students at Lance Middle School and retired Lieutenant David Molinaro of the Kenosha Police Department.

In addition to weekly lessons, the golf program also features a 9-hole event, “Golf with a Cop,” where all players will get to golf with a Kenosha police officer or public official.

“The BGC Golf Academy is great way to introduce golf to the youth of Kenosha,” said retired Lieutenant David Molinaro. “It also helps bridge the gap between our youth and local Law Enforcement. The Golf with a Cop outing is a great way to show the youth of today the funny side of police officers.”
