YOUTH GOLF CLUBS AVAILABLE FOR CHECK-OUT
The Parks & Recreation Department has partnered with the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) and the Golf Course Builders Association of America (GCBAA) to bring the “Sticks for Kids” program to Woodford County. Through this program, the Department has received 10 sets of free golf clubs for the development of golf programming in Woodford County. These clubs will be used in future clinics and camps but may also be checked out by the general public for use for free! Clubs are available on a first come, first served basis when they are not being used for Parks & Recreation programs. The intent is for families to be able to allow their child to try golf and decide if they like it before they decide to purchase their own. Various sizes are available for children between the ages of 8 and 14. Those interested in checking out clubs should come to the Department, located in the Falling Springs Center, between 9 AM and 6 PM, Monday through Friday and complete a Golf Club Sign Out Form. A photo ID and credit card number must be provided when equipment is checked out. Borrowers are financially responsible for clubs that are damaged or not returned. To download a check-out form, please click HERE. (Remember, clubs may only be checked-out in the Parks & Recreation offices Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 6 PM and a photo ID and Credit Card are required).
