Kids from Isabella Dicken elementary school had a great time last week swinging the clubs and getting an introduction to the wonderful world of golf.

Intermediate classes at the school took part in the golf lessons with the club’s golf pro, and learned how to drive, putt and chip.

“The students really enjoyed the program,” said teacher Nicole Neufeld. “For many it was their first exposure to the world of golf. What was especially awesome this year was that the golf course also gave free buckets of balls for the students to come after school to the driving range to practice their skills some more. Many of our students took advantage of the opportunity.”

The IDES golf program was organised by golf fanatic and grandparent Anne Majic.

“She is involved with golf herself and wanted to organise something so that students at IDES could have the opportunity to take golf lessons,” said Nicole. “Anne approached the various groups to ask for funding and then contacted us to let us know that the opportunity was there.”

This is the second year the program has run, with support from Teck Coal, 3300 Club, Fernie Lions Club and the Knights of Columbus.
