Magnolia Park Blog - June Review

Junior Free Fun Day, Saturday 2nd June

On Saturday 2nd June we ran our first ever free Junior Fun Day where we welcomed over 40 children from Thame, Bicester, Aylesbury and surrounding areas for the day hosted by our Head Pro Jon Darby.

The day was a huge success and enjoyed by all the children, aged between 4 and 12, who attended the 3 golf classes, many of who were trying golf for the very first time! During the one hour sessions they took part in swing lessons, target golf to win fun prizes and the younger ones played using the tri-golf system with plastic clubs and targets. Another 50 children also came along to try FootGolf on our purpose built 9 hole FootGolf course throughout the day giving them an opportunity to try the fun sport, that combines football and golf, for the first time.

The event was organised by Jon as a launch for the new Junior Golf Academy which he has set up as we try to get as many children into golf, making new friends and enjoying all the benefits the game has to offer.
