Nemadji offering free clubs, balls, play on Par 3 course
A late spring may have delayed the opening of area golf courses this year, but the Nemadji Golf Course is in the process of helping get new people interested in the game of golf.
NGC golf professional Mark Carlson said the course currently has more than 200 donated golf clubs and hundreds of used golf balls available to anyone who wants to start playing the game of golf.
The clubs and balls are free, as are season passes for the three-hole Par 3 course.
The Nemadji Golf Shop is giving away free season passes to the Par 3 course. Passes are available in the golf shop.
“Nemadji is an excellent municipal recreation facility, we just want to get people out to use it,” Carlson said. “Playing on the three-hole course is a great way to learn the game without holding up the experienced golfers on the full length courses.”
Nemadji is also looking for old clubs that can be fixed up and used for the Nemadji Junior and Adult Beginner Programs. Those wanting to donate old clubs may drop them off at the golf shop.
Golfers looking to sharpen their game may take lessons from PGA Professional Shaun Mingus, who is offering private lessons for $40 and group lessons for $15 per person, which includes the lesson and golf and cart after the lesson. All skill levels are welcome.
There will also be junior lessons, a junior golf camp later this summer, and Ladies Clinics at 4 and 5 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays through August.
The Ladies Clinics begin June 3 and 5.
