Participants will hit two drives on the SkyGolf SkyTrak virtual simulator, 3 chips at various targets and 3 putts on the BirdieBall putting green. Point values are assigned for each shot, and the top 3 finishers each day in the Adult Male, Adult Female and Junior Male & Female divisions will win prizes such as clubs, balls, and memberships to the New England Series and NEPGA Junior Tour. The cost is $5 per person, and all participants will receive a hat and have the chance to win other Drive, Chip & Putt merchandise. All proceeds benefit the New England PGA Foundation.

New England PGA professionals will be available for 10 minute tune-ups for $10 per lesson.
