We offer a full menu of options when it comes to promoting the golf range. Members and Guests can enjoy private instruction that includes lessons with state of the art technology measuring in full swing, short game, putting and playing lessons. Our JuniorProgram has been very successful this year that includes a beginner and intermediate level clinics twice a week, PGA JuniorLeague that runs on two separate times during the week, and Private Instruction for individuals and small group lessons. OurJunior program will transition into after school sessions in the fall with the capability to teach inside with our Trackman Simulators during the winter season. We measure the success of these programs by the growing participation levels which also allow for families to spend more time around the club engaged in the exceptional amenities at GreatHorse.
Since its grand opening give years ago, GreatHorse has contributed over $50,000 to the local community in various ways. The Antonacci family, who are the private owners of the club, are both generous and helpful to the neighboring communities of the pioneer valley. From academic scholarships, donations, and holiday toy drives, to sharing their space or delivering fresh produce,GreatHorse tries to reach beyond its sprawling golf course to the towns that surround its greens.
Each school year, GreatHorse supports a local scholarship foundation by awarding two students with the “GreatHorseScholarship”. This goes out to two well-rounded high school seniors from Minnechaug High School who are looking to major in business and are excelling in both academics and a varsity sport. The Antonacci’s are a family of entrepreneurs, so supporting students who aspire to further their education is reminiscent of their youth.
GreatHorse has also contributed to its town library, being the title sponsor to their “Libraries Rock” fundraiser which supports their summer reading programs. GreatHorse has donated the past 4 years and plans to continue their efforts in the years to come.
Once summer is over and the season comes to a close, GreatHorse prepares a club-wide toy drive in efforts to be the reason a child smiles during the holiday season. Members and employees are invited to donate a gift, which are then dropped off at the local Shriner’s Hospital located in the neighboring city of Springfield, Mass. GreatHorse has supported the local hospital for the past few holiday seasons and this drive is highly supported by employees and members alike.
GreatHorse is also proud to be the home practice course to the Wilbraham Monson Academy, a private boarding and day school located just down the street, as well as a local university golf team. By sharing the course with the younger golf community, GreatHorse hopes to encourage, support, and challenge young minds to help shape their athletic futures and promote the sport of golf to younger generations.
