LEHMAN, Pa. — Are you looking to learn the game of golf in a relaxed atmosphere with players of your own ability? Whether you are a novice or a beginner, you will have fun learning the fundamentals, including grip, stance, alignment and the full swing.  Develop skills for pitching, chipping and putting on a grass putting green with plenty of time for questions about everything from clubs to course strategies.

The Penn State Wilkes-Barre Northern Tier Center and Towanda Country Club have partnered to offer a program that has a track record of success. Penn State Wilkes-Barre is pleased to welcome Ed Keil as this spring’s instructor. Ed is in his 25th year coaching golf at Penn State Wilkes-Barre. In that time, the team has captured seven league titles, most recently in 2010. Ed has been a golf course superintendent since 1980 and a 21-year Class A member of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America. He is an alumni of Penn State Wilkes-Barre.

The Ladies Golf Clinic for Beginners will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 9, and on Sundays July 17, July 24 and Aug. 7 at the Towanda Country Club. The clinic will wrap up with a “play the course” day from 3 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 14. The cost of the clinic is $159 per person, and the deadline to register is Friday, July 1.
