The first session of the Junior Golf Summer Program at San Vicente Golf Course was a success with junior golfers receiving instruction and guided practice in putting, pitching and chipping, full swing, etiquette and sportsmanship.

Three more sessions are scheduled: July 9 to 11,  Aug. 6 to 8, and an advanced clinic Aug. 20 to 22. Beginners will learn via SNAG (Start New at Golf). Intermediate and advanced students will use their own clubs. For those who do not own any, clubs will be provided.

A tournament will be held for all three sessions on Aug. 31 with a barbecue, golf shirt and prizes.

The junior golfers who attended the first session of the Junior Golf Summer Program learned the FUNdamentals of golf and learned that golf is fun.

For more information,  call the golf shop at San Vicente Resort, 760-786-3477. The golf course is at 24157 San Vicente Road in San Diego Country Estates.
