Bogey book series and merchandise at Colonial Acres Golf Course in Glenmont, New York

GLENMONT, N.Y. -- Scooter Pines Publishing is thrilled to announce that Colonial Acres Golf Course recently added the Bogey children's book series and merchandise to its pro shop. Dale Ezyk, a PGA Golf Professional for over twenty years, found that Bogey's mission of getting kids playing golf, reading and having fun resonates with him and his golf course which is recognized for its environmental stewardship.

"The entire concept of a range wanting to make it on the PGA tour is hilarious and really unique when you think about it. Bogey makes the game approachable for kids and families who want to learn and play the game," commented Ezyk. "Golf is about getting out here, learning the game and having fun! By supporting Bogey and his mission, especially teaching kids, we feel it complements our Junior Golf program as we also work to educate the community about the ongoing steps we are taking at Colonial Acres Golf & Learning Center to protect the environment."

Former No. 1 ranked female golfer in the world, current broadcaster for ESPN, a PGA of America Board Director, Bogey co-author, and this year's USA Solheim Cup Assistant Captain, Dottie Pepper agrees. "Because our main character is a practice range ball, Bogey reinforces the idea that golf and life, reading and learning, take practice. To make good grades in school, great shots on the course, and to be good stewards of the environment, it all takes practice."

To carry the Bogey book series and help spread Bogey's message, please contact Bogey himself or Ann Fuller.
