Are you looking to get your child involved in a sport that is not only challenging but fun? Look no further than the great game of golf.

Citrus County Parks & Recreation in partnership with Pine Ridge Golf Course will be holding summer youth golf lessons. The lessons will be held at Pine Ridge Golf Course on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. or Thursday evenings from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. They will begin on Wednesday June 12, 2013 and Thursday June 13, 2013 and run for five weeks. Children ages 6-15 are eligible and the cost is $80.00 per child with $15 off for additional siblings. Instruction will be given by Golf Pro, Randy Robbins and several of his volunteers. During these lessons participants will learn putting, driving, chipping, on-course play, and on-course etiquette. Golf clubs will be provided, but if your child has their own set we encourage them to bring them along.

For more information contact Crysta Henry, Recreation Program Specialist for Youth Programs at 352.527.7543, www.citruscountyparks.com, or Randy Robbins at 352.746.6177.
