Growing the Game of Golf
Most of us remember the first time out on the golf course. Playing in the sunshine with your friends or family, just learning the game and practicing patience. The memories of our first well-struck golf shot or draining our first 30-footer last a lifetime, and they’re important. But to the fathers and mothers; aunts and uncles; siblings and family friends who took us out to play for the very first time, the feeling of passing the game to the next generation is worth much more than hitting the sweet spot. It’s the fulfillment of a life worth living. A life on the golf course.
Maintaining enthusiasm and growing the game of golf affects much more than the bottom line of your local golf club. The game itself is full of life lessons we should be teaching our young people like honesty, integrity, judgement, sportsmanship and more. It teaches them how to grow and learn through having fun. And it teaches them the importance of sharing a wonderful game with their children and family.
“We love this game, and it gives us incredible joy to see the next generation begin to love it as well,” said Greg Brockelman, head golf professional at Rio Secco. “To see the smile on a young person’s face when they start to learn the game is something really special.”
That’s why Rio Secco Golf Club allows juniors (kids 15 and under) to play golf – for free – all summer long after 2 pm when playing with a paying adult. Additionally, Rio Secco offers complimentary Callaway rental clubs and golf lessons with a paying adult, so you and your new golfer can learn together. Offer valid through August 25, 2019.
