Tee It Up
The Joplin Golf Foundation in conjunction with area PGA Professionals and High School Golf Coaches from Carthage, Joplin, Webb City and Carl Junction have put together a junior golf development program for area youth. The program is open to area youth that are entering grades 3rd through 8th. Golf instruction will be administered by area PGA Professionals and High School Golf Coaches. Instruction that will be covered includes the short game, full swing, course safety, etiquette and an introduction to playing the golf course. If a child does not have any golf clubs, don’t worry, the Joplin Golf Foundation has your child covered! “Tee it Up” will provide equipment during instruction and playing opportunities.
Three sessions will be held each day Monday June 22nd – Friday June 26th
The first session is from 8:00 am – 9:00 am
The second session is from 9:00 am – 10:00 am
The third session will be from 10:00 am – 11:00 am
We have changed the sessions and dates from our normal 4 Mondays during June to the one full week in an effort to reduce group sizes allowing us to distance player more effectively. Please list your session choices 1st through 3rd. We will have a maximum of 50 per session.
