Silver Spring Golf Course


Dear public:

I am responding to Richard Ferreira’s article posted in your last issue of the reporter.

As a volunteer and new treasurer for the semi-private and public course now a non-profit, we have had an excellent attendance this season! It took the back breaking efforts of a few volunteers including our President Lou Roccabello and Jimmy Alden to keep the greens watered cut and in great order! They with a few other volunteers have done a tremendous job! That being said we also need financial help from the public sector and donors to keep the tradition going. We also need local businesses support signage and branding as our golfers include some anonymous people who are pro ballers and other local people that enjoy our club. Although it is 6 holes many play 18 or all day for a minimal price. In order to continue our efforts and open next year we will continue to need brilliant people who can help. Mainly the greens keeping is our greatest challenge but also equipment, the clubhouse and upkeep of the club for a wonderful community golfing experience is necessary. We can offer to barter some free golf and lessons for more financial or physical support for our commitment to grow a great sport and tradition to continue for years to come. Most people near and far don’t know we exist. I welcome anyone to personally contact me with any questions or support for this endeavor.
