Calling all itty bitty golfers! In partnership with the Junior Golf Association of Arizona (JGAA), the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department is hosting the 35th annual Itty Bitty Open for children ages 3-5 on Saturday, Jan. 14 at various park locations throughout the valley.
The free event features three clinic times per location 9 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. where children and parents learn basic-level golfing skills taught by Professional Golf Association (PGA) and Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) professionals. Each site will have a mock nine-hole golf course and participants will be provided with toy golf clubs, balls, bags and visors.
This fun event is a great introduction to the game of golf.
