Family & Friends Golf Times & Family Golf Clinics

Held on various Thursdays throughout the summer from 5:30pm-6:30pm, Family & Friends Golf Times are starting times spaced 12 minutes apart instead of the usual eight minutes. The extra time between groups allows players to have a much more leisurely and enjoyable experience on the golf course without having to worry about groups pushing from behind. Perfect for families with children, couples, beginners, or just about anyone that would like a more casual pace of play on the golf course. 

In addition, enjoy games at the Clubhouse like Cornhole and special dinner features and buffets; perfect for the entire family!

Free Golf Clinics - In conjunction with Family & Friends Golf Times, Free Clinics allow any member, but especially families, to stop at the practice facility and receive FREE lessons from PGA staff. Family clinics are held from 5pm to 6pm and no appointment is necessary.
