Salt Lake City Golf is accepting entries for boys and girls ages 8 to 17 into the 2012 Chevron Youth on Course Golf and Life Skills Program. The Youth on Course program features beginning clinics, intermediate camps, advanced academies, junior leagues, parent/junior scrambles, and individual tournaments. The mission of this program is to provide boys and girls with opportunities to learn the rules, etiquette, traditions, and skills necessary to appreciate and enjoy the game of golf; to provide affordable access to Salt Lake City’s golf courses so as to facilitate the development of these skills; and to provide structured activities and entry-level competitions that test these skills while developing solid core values, character traits, and social skills.
Chevron’s ongoing support of this program allows us to offer scholarships for boys and girls in need of financial assistance in order to participate in the beginning clinics and intermediate camps. If you would like to be considered for one of these scholarships, please submit a written request to David Terry, Salt Lake City Golf Program Manager at Forest Dale Golf Course, 2375 South 900 East, Salt Lake City, Utah 84106.
Youth on Course activities are scheduled throughout the summer at all Salt Lake City golf courses including Bonneville, Forest Dale, Glendale, Mountain Dell, Nibley Park, Rose Park, and Wingpointe. Registration packets including program descriptions are available at all Salt Lake City pro shops, or you can download a packet or register online for any instructional program or tournament at www.slc-golf.com.
The Chevron Parent/Junior Scramble at Rose Park on Saturday, June 2nd will serve as the tee off event for the 2012 Youth on Course Program. This nine-hole event starting with a 9:00am shotgun will feature two-player adult/junior teams separated into divisions based on the junior’s age and gender. Carts, tee prizes, awards, and lunch are included in the $45 entry fee. All parent/junior scrambles are co-sponsored by the Utah Section PGA’s Junior Golf Connection Program.
