Junior tourney tees off on four greens

The four golf courses in town are teaming up to offer a citywide junior tournament this summer.

The two-day tourney, Aug. 7 and 8, will include nine holes of play at each of the Steamboat Springs Golf courses. Juniors will play at the Sheraton Steamboat Golf Club and the Steamboat Golf Club on Aug. 7. The young golfers will then move to the Haymaker and Catamount Ranch and Club on Aug. 8.

The tourney means young golfers will get to experience a round of golf at a course in town they previously might not have had the opportunity to play. Each course will continue to offer its own junior golf program throughout the summer.

Additionally, Haymaker and Catamount will combine forces to offer a regional high school tournament Sept. 4 and 5.

SSWSC coach heading to Canada

Steamboat Springs freestyle coach Bobby Aldighieri will be leaving the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club this year to take a position with the Canadian National team.

Aldighieri, who has been with the Steamboat club for the past five years, said he is excited about the chance to coach at the World Cup and Olympic levels in the upcoming years.

Aldighieri said he will be sad to leave the staff and skiers here in Steamboat Springs but feels as if this is a huge opportunity to move up the coaching ladder.

Student physicals being scheduled

The Steamboat Springs High School is currently making appointments for sports physicals for high school and middle school students for the 2001-02 school year.

Steamboat Medical Group is conducting the sports physicals in their offices on Pine Grove Road between 4 and 8 p.m. May 24, 25, 29, 30 and 31. Physicals will also be conducted June 4-6.

A nominal cost of $20 will be charged. This money is then donated to the Steamboat Booster Club.

No players will be allowed to begin athletic practice in the fall without a completed physical on file. The physicals are good for one year and can often be used for summer camp purposes.

Physicals at any other time will cost $48.

To make an appointment please call Kate Parke at the high school at 871-3686. Do not call Steamboat Medical Group.
