Are the kids driving you crazy and playing too many video games this summer? Want to have them do something healthy and learn a lifelong sport? Ace Golf is offering a free summer golf practice program for kids age 5 to 15. Every day from June 1 through the end of August, kids can sign up to receive a free small bucket of range balls each day for the whole summer. Kids hit the balls on the Ace Practice Ranges in Brandon and Riverview or at the Pebble Creek Golf Club in New Tampa,Wentworth Golf Club or Crescent Oaks Country Club in Tarpon Springs.
“There are a lot of families out there that just can’t afford to put kids in camps but still want the kids to be out learning a skill or just getting some exercise,” says Bill Place, owner of Ace Golf Ranges and Golf Courses. "We want to help, and hopefully in the process we will find some kids that love golf."
How it works:
- Children may sign up for free at any of five Ace Golf locations in Brandon, Riverview,
Tampa and Tarpon Springs.
- Each child receives a daily stamp card for one free small bucket each day.
-vEach time the child redeems their free bucket they will get a stamp on their card noting
the redemption. An adult must accompany them.
- No purchase is necessary. Kids should bring a golf club with them or may rent one.
