Kids enjoy golf camp

The Arlington Boys & Girls Club continues to bring activity and fun to the local youth as they held their golf camp from Aug. 14-17.

The golf camp focused on the basics of playing, including the selection of the appropriate clubs and different techniques. These skills were practiced and groomed on the Battle Creek Golf Course throughout the four-day camp.

“The kids have a lot of fun doing it. The most important thing is to keep them having fun, helping them out according to their skill level, and making sure they’re making contact with the ball, which is the hardest thing at this age. It’s great to see the progress they make from the first day to the last, they just pick it up so quickly,” said Boys & Girls Club Coach Kevin Coghill.

All Summer the Arlington B&G Club has been putting on a variety of sports camps in order to get the local young athletes up and active. The golf camp was open for kids ages 6-10, and accepted all players from beginners to seasoned golfers.

The camps have been known to teach lessons that a young athlete can carry forward in their athletic careers. Starting with the basics and keeping it fun allows the children to grow into the sport while maintaining their activity level.

“Some of the kids are beginners and some aren’t, they’re all at different levels. Golf is one of the most difficult sports to actually play consistently, so it’s a little more challenging to get them started and having fun,” said Coach Coghill.
