2007 CW Junior Golf program invites young duffers to tee it up!

Have you ever wanted your youngster to take a swing at
golf? Now’s your chance! The Golden Horseshoe’s 2007 Junior Golf Program gives children and teens a convenient and affordable opportunity to explore the game.

Open to youngsters ages 6-16, Colonial Williamsburg’s Junior Golf program will be presented on seven Monday afternoons—June 18, June 25, July 2, July 9, July 16, July 23 and July 30. Youth ages 6-10 practice from 3:30-4:30 p.m. and youth 11-16 practice from 5-6 p.m.
The Golden Horseshoe professional staff will conduct the weekly sessions.

“Many former participants have gone on to play competitive golf in area schools,” said the Golden Horseshoe’s head PGA golf professional Jeff Winters, “but all leave Colonial Williamsburg’s summer golf program with a better understanding of the game and how to enjoy it regardless of skill level.”

During the one-hour sessions, the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club professional staff will provide instruction on the following:

  • Rules and etiquette of golf;
  • Fundamentals of the golf swing;
  • Use of short and long irons and woods; and
  • Short game topics of pitching, chipping and putting.

    All sessions take place at the Golden Horseshoe’s Green Course driving range and putting green.

    Cost is $90 per junior, which includes instruction, as well as a cookout and awards ceremony on the last day. Maximum enrollment is 25 players. Deadline for enrollment is 5 p.m. June 16.

    For more information or to register, call (757) 565-8697.
