Greetings from Trinidad and Tobago to all my family and friends of the USGTF and WGTF. Today, I write about the game we all love and play. In Trinidad and Tobago, there was a time when I would ask where are all the golfers. The course was empty with very few players, but then COVID-19 happened. Now, I ask where are they all going, as there is no room on the tee box, the course is almost filled, and there is an increase of about 100% more players. That is good for the golf clubs’ membership and it’s also good for the teachers.

At present, I am teaching at two golf clubs, St. Andrews Golf Club and Point-A-Pierre Golf Club. Both programs are growing in numbers, the cost is reachable, and our more experienced junior players are improving rapidly, with the low handicap at about +2 in 2021.

Chris Richards Jr., our best junior male player, has won the last four events he played in competing against all comers. His last victory was the T&T Open Amateur, Championship Division, played at St. Andrews Golf Club this past March 18-21.

The future of golf certainly looks bright here in Trinidad and Tobago!
