TCJGA to hold free golf clinic for children on Sunday

The Traverse City Junior Golf Association is holding a free golf day for children ages 15 and under Sunday afternoon at Bay Meadows Family Golf Course.

The day runs from 3-5 p.m., with putting, chipping and swing clinics.

“It’s huge for the area, you know, with all of the golf courses that we have. We’re introducing a lifelong sport, which is big,” TCJGA Executive Director Todd Hursey said. “And then when you look at the high school programs in the area, this is like our feeder program.”

Golf clubs will be available for use, and following the clinic, the children will be able to play the course.
