Golf Programs That Make A Difference
Golf is an amazing sport—part recreation, part character building, part competition and it is said, the only game that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. People from all ages, genders and walks of life enjoy playing golf together. Because of its innate nature, golf promotes the values of courtesy, honesty, and respect for others. Golf also teaches sportsmanship, taking personal responsibility, perseverance and the building of self-confidence.
