Students at John de la Howe learning golf

One dozen male students at John de la Howe School learned the basics of golf from a group of area volunteers this fall.         

Taught over an eight-week period, the golf lessons began on the school grounds with instruction in the fundamentals.

Later the boys traveled to Hickory Knob State Park Golf Course for two sessions that allowed them to practice chipping and putting.

The final session of golf lessons involved a visit to the McCormick County Club where the students were able to play several holes.

“We would like to thank John Kuech for his leadership in organizing this program, along with the assistance of other volunteers Jim Gunning, Larry Legree, Ted Cicora, Jerry Ehmke and Ron Beliveau,” said Tim Wines, a member of the school’s Wilderness Program staff. “We would also like to thank Hickory Knob State Park and McCormick Country Club for allowing us to use their facilities.”

“This was a very worthwhile program that exposed our young men to the game of golf, but more importantly allowed them to interact with positive adult mentors,” Wines added.

Located on 1,200 scenic acres eight miles from the town of McCormick, John de la Howe School will be celebrating its 220th anniversary in 2017. The school provides a safe place for the children of South Carolina to heal, grow and make lasting changes.
