This week, Forest Park Golf Course is host to the first edition of the High School Girls' Golf Camp held by club pro Mark Rogers.

The camp began on Tuesday morning and runs through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day with fees including lunch, green fees and awards. The regular fee is $195 though a discount will be given to anyone who has a Forest Park pass. Anyone interested may still sign-up before camp begins each day.

The Northview Sectional is already well represented amongst the nine campers that are signed up and were working with Rogers on Tuesday afternoon.

Northview is currently represented by Savannah Pursell and Mandy Thomlinson, who helped lead the team to a second-place finish in last year's sectional.

Terre Haute South's Kelsey Fuqua, who shot 80 in the Braves sectional victory at Forest Park last year, also was at the camp.
