Introduction to Golf

Whether for pleasure or for business, golf is a game that everyone should learn to play. It can lead to business deals and to a life-long hobby. Although the rules of the
game themselves are rather simple, it's learning the fundamentals and skills that keep many people away. Going out onto the green and not knowing which club to
use or, even worse, not being able to make contact between the ball and the club can quickly become frustrating and even embarrassing. But with a little studying of the
fundamentals and a whole lot of practice, you'll soon be well on your way to learning how to play golf like a pro. This course introduces the basic skills and techniques of
golf. No senior discount. The Cost is as follows: Students In-District $342, Students Out of District $390. The class will meet on Wednesdays from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. January 14 through May 8. For more information, contact Continuing Education at 409-944-1344.
