The 2020 Spring Youth Golf Clinic is scheduled for 4 Saturday's in May at 11:00am each day with a picnic planned following the last session on May 23rd. The other sessions will be May 2nd, May 9th, and May 16th. One lucky child will win a new set of fitted golf clubs during the picnic in a drawing from those who have attended this free Youth Clinic.
The future of golf every where hinges on the younger generations and we at Deer Run Recreational Association want to promote that. Each year we host our Spring Youth Clinic attended by dozens of young golfers from age 4 to 18. Sessions are held Saturday mornings for a couple of hours over a 4 weekend period where groups of future golfers learn about golf etiquette, the grip, the swing, how to putt, etc. The cost of this clinic to the parents of these kids??? Nothing! It’s on us and we hope to be able to always say that. Our next 4 weekend clinic is scheduled for the month of May in 2020.
We value our High School teams so have made arrangements with the Boys and Girls golf teams here at West Hancock (Titans), Hamilton, Illinois, and across the river in Keokuk, Iowa, (Chiefs) to use our practice facilities on a scheduled basis and during their respective seasons. All on us!
If you are a golfer for either of these teams, become a member here at Deer Run and save $20 on a student membership. If you are age 11 to 18, play golf here for $10 and if you are age 10 and under it’s free when accompanied by an older family member.
