The Golf Club at Star Fort now allows kids to play free

Most golfers can look back and tell stories of how their parent, grandfather or some other adult helped them learn how to play golf.  Now The Golf Club at Star Fort makes changes to their policy to allow kids under 14 to play free with a paying adult.  There’s a huge reason behind this change according their Golf Pro, Zach Calhoun.

“My Grandfather was the one who got me started playing golf and it’s been a very rewarding sport for me” explains Calhoun.  “Allowing parents or grandparents to bring their children out to play could make a lasting, positive impression to them as well.  We just want to make that opportunity more welcoming here at our club”.
