Recently, I have been interested in learning more about the game of golf. My father and brother are avid golfers, and I have played a few times. I enjoy the fresh air, beauty of the greens, and exercise I get from playing the game. My kids are getting older, and it would be nice to get the family interested in an outdoor sport we can do together.
I recently learned about PGA Free Lesson Month, which is held at facilities nationwide throughout May. New for 2010, PGA Free Lesson Month has added free family golf clinics, giving families the opportunity to learn and participate in the game of golf together.
PGA Free Lesson Month gives individuals and families an opportunity to improve their game, making golf more fun and enjoyable for everyone. While the affordability of PGA Free Lesson Month is evident, since it’s complimentary, the health benefits received by playing the game of golf are invaluable as well.
Every golfer who takes a free lesson is encouraged to register at www.PlayGolfAmerica.com/FLM to enter a sweepstakes to win a two-day/two-night golf getaway to The PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance in Port St. Lucie, Fla., including hotel accommodations, round-trip, economy airfare, and a custom-fit set of golf clubs. One hundred runners-up will receive a copy of The PGA’s First Swing Golfer’s Guide and a 2009 PGA Championship DVD.
