Conyers putt in funds for kids

A local law firm is supporting young golfers. 

The junior golf coaching program, run in partnership by the Cayman Island Golf Association and the North Sound Golf Club, is going from strength to strength with 50 youngsters taking part in the latest sessions. Law firm Conyers has now come on board as sponsors. 

Conyers Partner Rick Finlay, who is a golf association life member, said, “Conyers is committed to assisting youth programs and we are very pleased to be able to support junior golf in the Cayman Islands. The association has done an excellent job of developing a junior program over the last year and we are proud to be a part of it.” 

Association board member Siobhan Ribbins, who is the coordinator of the junior program, expressed thanks on behalf of the association and the young players. 

“The juniors have been working really hard to improve their golf, which has been reflected in some great scores in the national team qualifiers” Ribbins said. “This support and generous sponsorship from Conyers will help them move to the next level.”  

The funds are earmarked for much needed replacement golf bags that will be used by the Cayman Islands team when competing at international events. The association was also able to reach out to more potential young golf stars as they were one of the exhibitors at the “Celebrate our Youth Day” last month.  

Association president Jason Perras, who was at the event, said, “The association was delighted to be part of this community event. Our stand was very popular, with lots of young people able to get a first taste of the game by chipping and putting. Hopefully, we will see some new faces at the coaching program.”
