Legendary golfer Billy Casper will entertain golfers at Wintonbury Hills Golf Course and Metacomet School on Tuesday, May 21.
Casper’s appearance at Wintonbury Hills will be from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and again from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., and his visit at Metacomet School will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
A Masters and two-time U.S. Open champion with 51 PGA TOUR victories, Casper will conduct a putting clinic, provide swing tips, sign autographs and take photos in addition to conducting a Q&A session with junior golfers at the school.
“Growing the game among juniors is important to golf’s vitality,” says Casper, a member of the PGA and World Golf Hall of Fame. “I look forward to visiting both Wintonbury Hills and Metacomet School to share golf knowledge and stories.”
“We’re ecstatic Billy Casper will be at Wintonbury Hills to meet our wonderful junior golfers,” says Ciaran Carr, General Manager at Wintonbury Hills. “Golfers will be amazed when they interact with Billy Casper and learn more about this great game through his eyes.”
One of the finest courses in the United States expertly designed by renowned architect Pete Dye, the 18-hole, par-70, 6,711 yard layout is replete with stunning vistas of the Tunxis Reservoir and heavily-treed ridges that surround the property.
