By Grandfathers For Golf
Grandfathers For Golf is desperately in need of volunteers of any skill level to help teach kids how to play golf. A record number of children have signed up for the free program.
Volunteers instruct students on the basics such as posture, grip, alignment, and swing one or two afternoons per week at Echo Hills Golf Course in Hemet and Golden Era Golf Course in San Jacinto. Non-golfing volunteers can help with setup and administration of the program.
The program is free for children ages nine and over. Each kid gets a shirt and a free set of clubs. Volunteers work in groups with the kids, teaching them the fundamentals of golf posture, grip, alignment and swing. The program not only teaches the kids how to play golf but also gives them fundamentals for a good life: sportsmanship, honesty, integrity, humility and tenacity.
Grandfathers For Golf is a nonprofit charity. While the program welcomes children from all walks of life, its primary purpose is to give the gift of golf to underserved youths. For more information and to volunteer, please contact Grandfathers For Golf President Tony Viola at 909-754-4148 or [email protected].
