First event May 28
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (April 26, 2017) — Louisville Metro Parks and Recreation is launching the Louisville Junior Golf Tour with a kickoff event May 28 at Seneca Golf Course. The series of one-day events are designed for all children who play golf or are interested in learning the sport.
Metro Parks and Recreation golf pros have created more relaxed rules than traditional golf, short-yardage courses, stroke limits with each hole and affordable pricing with professional experience and guidance from the pros themselves.
“We want to bridge the gap between kids who are introduced to the game casually and the kids who compete in high-level golf tournaments,” said Tommy Betz, PGA professional at Bobby Nichols Golf Course and director of the Junior Golf Tour. “This is the perfect way to start competing and more importantly begin by learning to enjoy the game first.”
