What Steve would say to interest more juniors: It’s a sport anyone can do. With a little coaching and practice, you are in the game. Where you take it beyond that first swing is up to you. Beyond the sport, golf is a way to meet great people, make friends and build camaraderie. What better way to spend a few hours than being outdoors, getting some exercise and socializing.
