The clinic is set for Sunday, Aug. 17 at 2 p.m. and will see the Hazelmere golf pros teach the sport to 55 kids between the ages of five and 13.

The course is located at 18150 8 Ave.

Each child will receive a hat, hot dog and beverage, as well as a lesson on driving, chipping and putting.

This is the ninth year of the program, which has the goal of introducing the game to kids who may not otherwise be able to play.
