The PGA of America has initiated several wonderful golf programs for the 2012 season. One of the programs that we are promoting is "Welcome to Golf Month."
This program is to let all the former golfers know that we are going to do our level best to get you excited about golf again.
One benefit of Welcome to Golf month is that I offer any golfer a free 10-minute golf lesson at Adirondack Golf Club. The interested golfer must call my golf shop at 561-2337 to make an appointment. Also, I will be offering a six-week ladies golf clinic starting in June. They will be held every Wednesday from 6 to 7:15 p.m. at Adirondack Golf Club. The clinics will cover every phase the game and the students will also go out on the course one session to go over the etiquette and rules of the game.
To get the entire community more excited and involved I have set up two demo days from the two best golf companies in the business. First of all, we have a demo day with the Titleist Golf Company Friday, May 25, at Adirondack Golf Club from 1:30 to 5 p.m.
Then on June 8, we have the Ping Golf Company from 1:30 to 5 p.m.
All interested golfers may try any and all golf clubs and the range balls are free of charge.
I suggest that all the golf clubs in the North Country to try to promote "Tee It Forward" program. This is designed so that the senior golfer, junior golfer and all golfers with a high handicap will enjoy the game a lot more. This change will lower your golf scores, enable you to have more fun, and you will play in much less time. The "Tee It Forward" program is getting tremendous response in the areas of the country that are promoting it.
