Junior golf program at Birnamwood

Birnamwood Golf Course in Burnsville offers a junior golf program for youth entering grades three through 10.

The program starts with an “Introduction to Golf Clinic.” There, participants are taught the rules, safety and etiquette of the sport. They learn about golf swings, different clubs, water hazards and bunkers as they spend time at each of the nine holes on the course.

The program then turns to a hands-on, cooperative experience where children are grouped according to age and play the course for nine weeks.

Volunteers and staff are also available to answer questions and provide feedback. The program rounds out with a tournament where junior golfers have the chance to compete for prizes.

The introduction clinic is 7:45 a.m. Saturday, June 11. Program play is Wednesdays, June 15 to Aug. 3. The tournament is Wednesday, Aug. 10.

Cost is $150 or $32.50 with a Birnamwood annual pass.

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. A total of 164 spots are available.
