Getting Kids in Quincy Started With the Game of Golf
Quincy’s annual Little Peoples Golf Tournament took place earlier in the month. Anyone golfer that has children can tell you that it’s not the easiest sport to get young kids involved in. If you take your kids at the wrong time of day, you’ll spend more time letting others play through than you will playing your own game. Luckily for kids in Quincy, there are some great programs geared towards helping them get started in the game.
Westview Golf Course sponsors Family Nights, a special geared towards kids. Children play for only $1 on hols 19 – 27 after 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The costs for parents and grandparents is only $5 per adult.
