Junior golf program offered for sixth year, provides family incentive

 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 15-18. Sponsored by several youth-serving organizations, the LaGrange County Free 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. LaGrange County JDAI, the Community Foundation, REMC Operation Round Up, LaGrange County 4-H and Purdue Extension are supporting sponsors. Because if this generous support the four day, six hour program is free.

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 28th when accompanied by a paying adult. Due to space and safety limitations, enrollment will be reserved for the first 50 youth signing up at each course or June 8, whichever comes first. Registration forms can be obtained by contacting Purdue Extension at 499-6334 or by downloading a form below.
