We are excited to report the news about club member Travis Curtis. Travis found out earlier today that he will be one of two Special Olympics Golfers who will represent the State of Maine in the National Special Olympics Games that will take place in July 2022. Travis will travel to Orlando to compete in the event.
Travis is the reigning Maine State Special Olympics golf champion and has been for 12 consecutive years (no competition was held in 2020 due to the pandemic).
The Special Olympics Golf Championships are held every four years at different locations around the United States. In 2018, shortly after Travis joined the Northport Golf Club, he played in the 2018 Special Olympics Golf Championship. That year the tournament was held in Seattle, Washington, and Travis won the bronze medal in Class 1.
Please congratulate Travis when you see him at the club. And, a special thanks to Mike Marshall, who reported this exciting news about Travis, after they played in the kick off Rangers event today. Here is Travis playing today, and he is in a foursome with Ed Lajoie, Cecil Eastman, and Bruce Grantham.
