This year, in addition to a beginner’s clinic, we added an advanced clinic. Beginners 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. Advanced players will learn tips and drills that will help improve your game and your score. Learn to hit longer and straighter, specialty shots, such as from side hill lies and wind shots. Pitch it closer and make more putts.
