    JUNIOR GOLF CLINICSIf youd like to know one secret about me, well, here you go: I was once a junior golfer. Around the age of 12, my grandparents both avid golfers themselves took me to the driving range to spend some quality time smacking golf balls around for fun. To their surprise and excitement, I was actually pretty good! They began taking me to the range regularly; they even bought me my first set of mini clubs that Christmas! They were tiny (like me), I remember, and they came in a bright purple bag. I loved those clubs.

    By Christine Phillipp

    In eighth grade, I was the only girl to show up for junior varsity golf team registration. Our school didnt have an official girls golf team, so they set me up with the coach of the club team that carried our schools name. I played all four years of high school, and it wasnt until my senior year that girls golf became a recognized school sport. The certificate that shows I lettered reads, First for the year. I like to believe that it was really the first ever.

    Golf is so rewarding because it takes persistence, accuracy, patience, and discipline to be successful. You dont have to be the strongest or the fastest, and when you use all of the skills youve learned to finally hit that perfect shot, it just feels awesome.

    Theres no better time to establish these skills than in adolescence. Fortunately for youth golfers on Okinawa, Chibana Golf Course will again hold junior golf clinics this summer featuring expert instruction from PGA professionals.

    JUNIOR GOLF CLINICSClasses will consist of four one-hour sessions that cover putting, chipping and the full swing. After completion of their clinic on Thursday, each junior golfer will receive a graduation certificate. On Friday, children will be able to put their new skills to use in a Play Day that starts at 8 am, followed by lunch.

    No golf clubs? No problem! Chibana will have golf clubs available for junior golfers. Plus youll receive a 25% discount on any special order junior golf clubs purchased before 17 August!

    I can say from experience that I wish there were clinics like this when I was first learning. The instructors are great, and kids have an absolute blast learning together. Whats even better is that on lovely, sunny days when you have some time to burn, you can take the kids to Chibana and play as a family. Seeing their skills improve in tandem with yours is very rewarding. Head over to the Chibana Golf Course today to sign up!
