Paul Belongie, from RiverPines Golf, has been named to U.S. Kids Golf’s annual list of Master Kids Teachers. The Award recognizes the world’s most outstanding youth golf instructors, and Belongie is part of a select group that earned Top 50 accolades three times, making Belongie a Master Kids Teacher. He is one of two golf instructors in Georgia to receive the award this year.
Since 2004, U.S. Kids Golf has honored the best youth golf teachers with the Top 50 Kids Teacher Award. Applicants complete an online survey and winners are chosen based on their contributions to youth golf, such as: experience young golfers; time devoted to teaching youth; innovation, creativity and fun in their programs; communication; parental involvement; use of a well-organized instruction program and overall effort to grow the game.
Each year, award recipients include teachers who work at public, private, resort and municipal courses.
“The teachers and coaches who win this award play an important part in our corporate mission to make the game of golf for kids,” said Dan Van Horn, President and CEO of U.S. Kids Golf. “Our goal in recognizing these youth golf coaches is to bot recognize their accomplishments and also to help parents find quality golf instruction for their kids.”
The Top 50 Kids Teacher Award is administered by the U.S. Kids Golf Coaches Institute, a division of the U.S. Kids Golf Foundation. For more information about the Top 50 Kids Teacher Award, please contact U.S. Kids Golf at email@example.com.
