2006 Colonial Williamsburg Junior Golf Program Invites Young Duffers To Tee It Up!

Have you ever wanted your youngsters to take a swing at golf? Now’s your chance! The Golden Horseshoe’s 2006 Junior Golf Program gives children and teens a convenient and affordable opportunity to explore the game.

Open to children ages 6-16, Colonial Williamsburg’s Junior Golf program will be presented on seven Monday afternoons— June 19, June 26, July 10, July 17, July 24, July 31 and August 7. Youth ages 6-10 practice from 3:30-4:30 p.m. and youth 11-16 practice from 5-6 p.m.

“Many former students 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 $85 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.
