Fifty sets of golf clubs gifted to young golfers

Several business leaders gathered to present students with golf clubs as a part of an effort to encourage golf among young people in the Boys and Girls Club of Sherman.

"Hopefully we are creating some new golfers," Tanglewood General Manager Greg Dick said. "Kind of the best thing we do with this program is the club giveaway. This allows them to not only get introduced to the game, but to continue playing the game."

The Boys and Girls club partners with the PGA and Junior Golf to encourage play through the program. Fifty sets of clubs were given to students. Local golf courses offer reduced rates for the students to learn the game.
