Bob Silvester Junior Golf Program
In 2014, the Orleans Country Club board of directors and its members recognized Bob Silvester’s contribution, support, and continued involvement (even after retirement) of junior golf activities by officially acknowledging the junior program as the Bob Silvester Junior Golf Program.
We were able to bestow this honor to Bob prior to his passing on October 23, 2014. A commemorative album that embodies the man behind the name and the history of the junior golf program is on display in the pro shop.
Family Tees at OCC
Look for the Green Stakes on each hole!
Play a fun family scramble. Adults tee off from their normal tee while the kids get to hit from the junior tees! A great way to get new young golfers encouraged about their game while having fun with the whole family!
Remember, kids 12 and under play for FREE! And all juniors get FREE range balls anytime they want.
Scorecards are now available in the Pro Shop.

NEK Junior League Golf

Arthur Mandros / Bob Silvester Scholarship
The Arthur Mandros Scholarship was established in 1994, in memory of the Orleans Country Club long-term PGA Golf Pro, Arthur Mandros. The first scholarships were awarded in 1995. The recipients are chosen based on their affiliation with golf and Orleans Country Club.
In 2018 the name of the scholarship was changed to the Arthur Mandros/Bob Silvester Scholarship. Bob Silvester, like Arthur, was a long time PGA Golf Pro at Orleans Country Club. Bob had worked for Arthur as his Teaching Pro, and then took over for Arthur when he had to retire due to illness. Bob Silvester also has passed and their names were combined for the scholarship.
The idea is to support young people from the area, who hopefully will complete their post high school education and continue to support and participate in activities at Orleans Country Club.
Orleans Country Club’s Arthur Mandros / Bob Silvester Scholarship
If you are interested in applying for the Arthur Mandros / Bob Silvester Scholarship, pick up a generic scholarship form from your guidance counselor. Send the form along with a cover letter explaining your affiliation with Orleans Country Club by the first of May.
