The regulation course can now be turned into a non-intimidating “short course” experience through the use of PGA Family Tee Markers.
The Links at Stono Ferry, Hollywood, S.C. has announced that it will now feature a PGA Family Course, which allows children and families to enjoy the game more by playing from appropriate yardages based on ability.
The program, launched in a partnership with the PGA of America and U.S. Kids Golf, gives families the chance to play golf at The Links at Stono Ferry in a non-intimidating environment.
The PGA Family Course Program enables The Links at Stono Ferry to turn its regulation golf course into a “short course” experience through the use of PGA Family Tee Markers. The Family Course Tee Markers are set at yardages that allow golfers to reach greens in regulation, shoot lower scores, play in less time and most important, have fun.
“The traditional golf course set-up is not conducive to families enjoying the game together, because most regulation golf holes are far too long for kids and beginners, ” said Dan Van Horn, Founder and CEO of U.S. Kids Golf. “We’re delighted that The Links at Stono Ferry has adopted the Family Course Program to make the golf experience more inviting for the whole family.”
The introduction of shorter, family-friendly courses coincides with Play Golf America’s Family Golf Month and Get Golf Ready initiatives, both of which are designed to make the transition into the game easy for golfers of all ages.
The Links at Stono Ferry now becomes one of more than 1,400 golf courses nationwide that have installed the PGA Family Course.
