This year marks the 20th anniversary of the very popular and successful Hot Springs Village Junior Golf Program. Thousands of eager young golfers and hundreds of wonderful volunteers have participated over the years; and plans are underway to make this year a very special one for all partcipants.
Registration forms are available at all Village pro shops, and online at www.hsvjuniorgolf.org.
The juniors have practice each Wednesday during June and July at Magellan or Granada, and play each Thursday at Coronado.
This program is for kids between the ages of 8 and 18 who want to learn the game, improve their game and have a good time.
Orientation is at 4 p.m. June 5 at the Balboa Pavilion. The first practice is June 7 and the first play day June 8.
New caps will be handed out to all juniors at the orientation who have registered by June 2.
A special red moisture-wicking golf shirt has been chosen for the juniors and a special red and white shirt is available for adults. To order these shirts and have them available for pick-up at the orientation, check out the website at www.hsvjuniorgolf.org.
The cost for the program is still $35 per child.
As always, caring, helpful volunteers are needed for the instruction on Wednesdays and on-course help of Thursdays.
For more information on the Junior Golf Program, becoming a sponsor, or being a volunteer, call Bill Veal at 922-3478, Jack Barry at 922-2502, or Sharon Medica at 922-2097.
