2015 HAWAII JUNIOR GOLF DAY

 Join us on Saturday, March 21st from 9:00 AM -11:00 AM for the 2015 HAWAII JUNIOR GOLF DAY. This annual event will be held at 13 different golf courses around the state.  This will be the third year the Aloha Section PGA Foundation and the Hawaii State Junior Golf Association partner up to introduce the game of golf to youngsters in a fun and recreational setting and to help grow the game of golf.

 The focus of the free clinics is to make golf fun through the use of age appropriate golf equipment and creative props. The clinics also stress proper nutrition and the importance of developing all major motor skills, including running, jumping, throwing and kicking. Each clinic will be conducted by a PGA member of the Aloha Section that will help teach important techniques of the game while developing life skills of honesty, integrity, good sportsmanship and perseverance.

 For parents attending, we will share information on The Roadmap to Junior Golf, which is an online resource with information on all the various junior golf programs in the state that offer opportunities for their child to learn and play the game. The Roadmap to Junior Golf can be found online at the ASPGA, HSJGA and HSGA websites.

 We look forward to having you join us at one of the host facilities below. The first 40 kids to register at each site will receive a FREE tee gift. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
