With school out until September, parents across Canada are constantly trying to keep their kids entertained over the summer months. You can head to the public pool, or visit the local park…again. But why not try something new that both parents and children will enjoy?
Take a Kid to the Course Week, developed by the National Golf Course Owners Association of Canada, provides parents with the opportunity to introduce their children to the sport and play alongside each other. Forget the park where parents are often left watching their children from the bench, a trip to your local course is fun and healthy for everyone.
The hundreds of participating courses across the country not only offer free golf to children under 16 with a paid adult, but many courses will also provide additional programs such as junior clinics, free range balls, free junior club rentals, and parent/child tournaments for the duration of the week.
Take a Kid to the Course Week runs from July 7-13th, 2014. For more information and a list of participating courses click here.
