Donation keeps Bentley’s youth golfers swinging

On Friday, April 11, Bentley School was pleased to welcome special guest Cal Yakel to our monthly PRIDE Assembly. Cal presented Bentley School’s Golf Academy with a $1,250 cash donation. Gull Lake Golf Course Tuesday Women’s League, Tuesday Men’s League and Thursday Mixed League contributed funds, which amounted to this generous donation. Along with this donation, Gull Lake Golf Course has purchased 10 new sets of clubs to use during Golf Academy.

Cal has been a long time member and volunteer at the Gull Lake Golf Course, he makes sure the students have the right clubs and are ready for lessons with the pro each week. He said he never had the opportunity to learn to golf as a youngster and didn’t take up the sport until he was 65. So, seeing the bus roll in with our students every week feels pretty special.

Bentley School sends out a huge thank you to all the members of the Gull Lake Golf Course who contributed towards this gift. We also thank the golf course for providing top quality lessons and being so supportive of this program.
