Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - SPORT -

A six week ju­nior clinic hosted by De­niliquin Golf Club will start this af­ter­noon.

Co­or­di­nated by club cham­pion Vince Kelly, the clinic is ideal for five to 12 year-olds, but young­sters over the age of 12 are also wel­come.

Cost for the en­tire six weeks is only $10, which is paid when reg­is­ter­ing via the web­site http://www.my­golf.org.au/.

Golf clubs and balls will be avail­able for par­tic­i­pants, with young­sters asked to en­sure they come along with a bot­tle of wa­ter, sun­screen, a hat and flat soled shoes.

Kelly said with the suc­cess of pre­vi­ous clin­ics, it’s sure to be a good time.

‘‘We want to in­tro­duce kids to the sport with the ul­ti­mate goal of turn­ing th­ese kids into mem­bers of the club down the track,’’ he said.

‘‘They’ll be learn­ing by do­ing drills and games, and de­pend­ing on their progress we may even take them out on the course in the fi­nal week.

‘‘Whether it’s just a cou­ple of kids or a large group, the clinic will run re­gard­less.’’

The clin­ics will run each Fri­day, from 4pm to 5pm.
