Campers get into the swing of things
The Ellis County Press
WAXAHACHIE - Millions of kids each year learn to play sports; most play the normal sports: soccer, baseball, basketball, football and well, almost anything, except golf.
Why? As opposed to other sports, where you just need a backyard and a ball, golf requires a little more.
You need a course, clubs, transportation and of course a ball.
Which are some of the reasons why many young kids are never introduced to golf and the fun it can be.
However, programs like junior camps at the Waxahachie Country Club can change this.
These instructional golf camps run every week during the summer Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m. for $85 a week.
Devon Thomas, head instructor at the country club, offers basic instruction on the rules and nuances of golf while giving kids a strong grasp of the fundamentals of a golf swing and an introduction to the short game.
Although, the camp is not just for the instruction of skills, there are lots of games and competitions to make the camp fun for all, with prizes to the winners of the games and prizes for all participants at the end of the week.
Plus, the camps include lunch every day with food all kids love, ranging from pizza to chicken.
So no matter if your child is looking to channel his inner Tiger or just looking for a good time in the summer.
Look to the junior camps for a new swing and a fun week.
