TRUCKEE, Calif. — The nice summer weather conditions in the area have helped get the golf season off to a great start! With this in mind, the Tahoe Mountain Club and Truckee Donner Recreation andamp; Park District joined forces to put on the inaugural “Junior Golf Day” event at Old Greenwood Golf Course. This event was an overall blast for parents and juniors of Truckee. The event accommodated more than 80 junior golfers aged 5-14. It consisted of clinics, activities and contests, all related to golf put on by local golf professionals. Whether the kids had played golf before or not, all were invited to spend a Sunday afternoon in the sun learning all about the great game of golf. The motto of the event was “golf is fun!”Look for many junior golf programs held at Old Greenwood and through the Recreation Department at Ponderosa Golf Course throughout the summer.
