A new opportunity to introduce area youth to the sport of golf has been launched at the Emporium Country Club (ECC) and will kick-off this Thursday evening.

Beginning Thursday, May 18, children ages eight and up will be welcomed to ECC beginning at 5:30 p.m. to give golf a try. Parents and grandparents are invited to bring children to the club, where they can golf up to nine holes for the price of a cart rental.

“They didn’t use to encourage kids to come down there because of safety issues, but we want to start getting kids interested in golf,” said ECC board member Mary Jo Kahnell. “This is just something we’re putting together to help the kids learn without the huge financial commitment”. If the golfing event is a success, the club might consider joining a golf franchise.
