2023 Golf Academy: AYE Partnership with Building Better Men

Posted by Charles C Primas Sr (Board member of AYE)

The Detroit Boyz Rock was glad to once again partner with Odis Bellinger and Building Better Men in having a Golf Academy for our young men in 2023.

This is the third year of this partnership, and it was a resounding success. With us finally not being restricted by COVID, this was the best one ever and we look forward to continuing this in the years to come!

This year’s program had 17 kids sign up and participate and all of them have golf clubs and/or sets to take home with them and practice.

They came to us with all different levels of experience, and they all learned a lot more about the game than when they started.

So, look for them at a golf course near you.

Our lead instructor was Larry “ShotMaker” Clemons, a Detroit Legend who has taught many in our area, including Kirk Gibson! (And he also donated about 10 sets of clubs for the kids!

What really make this program rock was the volunteers. They made it so that the kids had individual attention and could really learn the game.

In addition to myself, the following people gave their time and energy to this year’s program:

  • Gwen Moore
  • Richard Burt
  • Dalton Roberson
  • Marcus Winfrey

Please support this iniative so that we can bring programs like this and others to our young Black Boys. We intend to create a new future for them and we need your support:
