The opportunity to get your child into golf is easier than ever, with the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) Take a Kid to the Course week taking place.
Starting Monday July 3, kids under the age of 16 , who are accompanied by a paying adult, will have a free round of golf. Over 500 courses are participating in the nation wide initiative, including Vernon’s Golf and Country Club.
The family-oriented initiative will run until Sunday, July 9 and encourages seasoned, occasional and new golfers to take a kid to the golf course for quality time in the fresh air.
Other Okanagan courses participating are: Shannon Lake (West Kelowna), Michaelbrook, Gallagher’s Canyon, Harvest, Kelowna Springs, Shadow Ridge, The Okanagan and Orchard Greens (Kelowna).
“The Take A Kid To The Course program is a wonderful way for families to enjoy the game of golf together,” said NGCOA Canada CEO, Jeff Calderwood. “I encourage parents across Canada to get outside and take advantage of the opportunity for kids to golf free!”
In addition to free golf, participants have the chance to win one of three sets of junior golf clubs courtesy of Tee-On.
