February 06, 2012

Golf is a game you can play for life, and youâre never too young to start enjoying it. Thatâs what the kids at Old Palm Golf Club found out recently with the opening of this seasonâs Junior Golf Academy. It was a blast for everyone, as the kids learned the fundamentals of the game with a major emphasis on fun To keep the instruction entertaining and pressure free, the kids were grouped together according to age. During their one-hour session, they began to learn the varying aspects of the game, including the full swing, short game and putting.
