AUGUSTA – On Sunday, June 8, at least 19 golf clubs around the State will celebrate Maine Junior Golf Day by offering free clinics for children 9 to 18 years old.

The free clinics will provide a broad introduction to the sport, including instructions on all facets of the game. Students will learn the proper stance, swing techniques and practice elements of their chipping and putting. They will also be introduced to basic golf etiquette.

Junior Golf Day is held in conjunction with Gov. John Baldacci’s “Take It Outside” initiative, a program intended to motivate adults into getting young people outside for activities.

The day will be broken into two clinics: Noon to 2 p.m. for ages 14-18; and 2 to 4 p.m. for ages 9-13.

Registration is required in advance and slots are limited. Among the local courses known to be participating are Sunday River in Newry, Sugarloaf in Carrabassett Valley, Norway Country Club, Bethel Inn and Country Club and Spring Meadows of Gray. Please call the club nearest you for more information.
