Who says golf is for retired people?

Three and four-year-olds enjoyed learning about the sport at kids’ summer camps last week. The kids got to spend some time on Wednesday afternoon at the driving range with Fernie Golf and Country club golf assistant pros, Kylan Borton, Scott Shouldice and Dani Poupart.

The camps are open to kids between three and 16 and they even get to take part in a tournament. Chris Stockey, President of the Ladies Club, said, “There is a huge interest in junior golf. It’s really thanks to the amazing hard work of the assistant pros who do a great job with the kids.”
