Kids Swing Into Summer Fun at Sammons Junior Golf Academy

For the ninth consecutive year, Sammons Golf Links will host their annual Junior Golf Academy throughout the summer. Designed to introduce the game of golf to children (ages six to seventeen) located in Temple and the surrounding areas, the Academy teaches the fundamentals, skill, and beauty of the game. Five sessions for the 2014 Sammons Junior Golf Academy will be held:

2014 Sammons Junior Golf Academy Dates
Week 1 June 23 – 26
Week 2 July 7 – 10
Week 3 July 14 - 17
Week 4 July 28 – 31

Golfers 10 years of age and older will attend from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at a cost of $60 per player. Golfers under 10 years of age, will attend from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at a cost of $35 per player.

“We are so proud to be hosting the Junior Golf Academy again this year,” said Director of Golf for Temple Parks & Leisure Services Jeff Ward. “Each year the academy grows and this year we will be able to offer instruction to approximately 200 local children.”

Upon graduation from the Academy, students will receive a Sammons Junior Golf Academy polo style shirt, hat and a certificate of completion.

“We encourage parents to register their children early,” Ward said. “We do not want anybody to miss out on the chance to learn the basic fundamentals of the game. This is a sport that they will be able to enjoy playing for years to come.”

Registration for the Sammons Junior Golf Academy can be completed on-site at Sammons Golf Links (2727 W. Adams) or by calling 771-2030.
