LaGrange County Fore-H Junior Golf

Registration provides optional 4-H membership and free golf on Fridays 

 With school finally adjourning for the summer next month, affordable instruction in a lifelong game will be provided at two county golf courses each morning during the week of June 16-19. Sponsored by several youth-serving organizations, the LaGrange County Fore-H Junior Golf Clinic will be conducted for students entering grades 3-12 at both Cedar Lake and Heron Creek golf courses. The program is being coordinated by the Purdue University Extension Service. The LaGrange County Community Foundation, REMC Operation Round Up and LaGrange County 4-H are supporting sponsors.

 The cost of the four day, six hour program is $15 for youth not currently enrolled in the 4-H program. While free to 4-H members, registration for the junior golf program will also provide an optional LaGrange County 4-H membership for those who choose to enroll. To encourage family involvement with the game of golf, participants will also receive a coupon entitling them to free golf at either course every Friday through August 29th when accompanied by a playing adult. Due to space and safety limitations, enrollment will be reserved for the first 60 youth signing up at each course or June 6, whichever comes first. Registration forms can be obtained by contacting Purdue Extension at 499-6334 or by downloading a form below.
