Life Lessons of Golf

Cooper King, a 7 year old South Burlington resident, has been named the winner of the Junior Membership Essay contest at Kwiniaska Golf Club. This is the first year for the essay contest. A generous Kwiniaska member, who prefers to remain annoymous, presented Kwiniaska owner, Bonnie Caldwell with the idea for the contest and sponsored the prize of a 2013 Junior Golf Membership.  Vermont Juniors, 18 years and under, were invited to submit 300 word essays on the theme “Life Lessons of Golf” for a chance to win the  Junior Membership to Kwini.  Judging criteria was creativity, originality, passion for the sport and grammar.  

Copper worked on the essay for 6 days.  All the hard work was apparent in this thoughtful and heartfelt essay.
