Deer Park offering golf lessons to kids

Parents looking to get their children involved in the ‘gentleman’s game’ now have the opportunity to do so, as Yorkton’s Deer Park Golf Course is once again offering children and teenagers aged six to 17 the chance to take part in golf lessons.

“I don’t know how many years we’ve done this - it’s been at least as long as I’ve been here – but we’re once again offering golf lessons to kids,” said Deer Park Director of Golf Operations Allan Sauser.

The golf lessons – which will be taught by CPGA certified teaching professionals – will follow the CN Future Links program, and are designed according to the age of the child.

The hopes for this program, just as it has been in years past, is a combination of getting children involved in the game of golf, and getting children the skills they need to be able to hit the links with their parents. “The concept is to get more kids out here; we want to be able to teach them golf and go over the etiquette and really it’s a good chance for parents to get their kids out here at a reasonable price and get them involved in the game of golf,” mentioned Sauser, continuing, “it’s also a chance for us to give some kids the skills they need to be able to go out and play with their parents as well, and be able to keep up with their parents.”

Registered children will get two hours of professional instruction that will take place over two sessions between Monday, May 23 and Thursday, June 2, and five free nine-hole rounds of golf that they can play at any time throughout the golf season.

There will also be a registration night tonight (Wednesday) at the Deer Park Clubhouse from 5:30p.m. to 7:00p.m., although registration is available after tonight by calling the Pro Shop at: (306) 786-1711.

Cost of the course is 60 dollars per child.
