Golf training equipment and instructional support from PGA professionals will be provided through this partnership to help youth build character, develop healthy lifestyles and learn the game of golf, reported development director Tina Hagen.

“This is an incredible opportunity for our club members, their families and our staff,” said operations director Wardell Carter. “We are excited to be partnering with the professionals at Indian Creek and through them the PGA and USGA in order to expose youth here in our community to the sport of golf.

“The many merits of golf—determination, focus, discipline, and respect —also include fitness and fun, and the promotion of healthier lifestyles. This program opens doors to new experiences to help the young people we serve become positive role models, better citizens and have even greater futures,” said Carter.

The PGA Sports Academy was launched in 2012 and has expanded its program to 100 sites nationwide, adding 25 clubs in 2014, said Hagen. Plans call for the program’s expansion to at least 150 Boys & Girls Clubs during the next three years.

The Boys & Girls Club of the Northern Neck, with the assistance of Indian Creek Yacht and Country Club’s PGA golf professionals Mike and Brenda Mayer, will implement this five-week curricula for ages 7 to 12 from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, March 25 through April 29, she said.

This program is also open to current non-club members. Families may call the club, 435-9696, and complete a form to include their children in the program.

The registration deadline is Monday, March 24.
