Justin Holland, owner of Westwood Golf Course and a Kiwanis Corporate Member of the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club, recently gave the members an update on improvements at Westwood Golf Course at their dinner meeting at the Roadhouse USA. Pictured with Justin are Kiwanis member Wes Clark and Juanita Lowry. Westwood caters to everyone in the community with various leagues such as: Ladies, Mens, Couples and Seniors. Justin talked about a program he is working on with the schools to include PGA Professional training to the golf teams during the winter/spring time. The kids are very important to the golf course and they are our future adults in our community. Justin is a firm believer that kids who grow up in the golf community have a better chance of succeeding in their lives as adults. With the indoor simulators the schools will have a chance to practice year around. He touched on what the golf course provides to the community, a home for some of our senior community that live on the golf course and a place to gather for them. Westwood host numerous tournaments that help raise money for community organizations. In 2017 we helped raise about $50,000 for the community. Westwood is home to the Crothersville, Austin & Scottsburg boys and girls golf teams. Without Westwood, those schools would have no place to practice or play. Justin stated how great the support from the community has been and how much he looks forward to growing and becoming a better asset to Scott County. The Kiwanis members thanked Justin for his presentation and for the service he provides to the community. Westwood Golf Course hosts the Kiwanis Scholarship Golf Scramble every June.
