BAGA - Childrens Golf Lessons in Belize

The first Golf Clinic in Belize took place at the Roaring River Golf Course on Tuesday 8th March. This marks a great step forward for the sport of Golf in Belize as the first 9 children from the Belmopan area participated in a 1 hour golf lesson.

The lessons included instruction on how to play the game, striking the ball, putting, set up and alignment and ended with a fun putting competition.

Below is the slideshow from the Clinic. Congratulations to the following children for doing so well, many of whom have never picked a club up before.
