During one month of the year, the Family Golf Month, golf courses will offer a series of programs for you to learn and play golf as a family.

Go to any course this season, and soon realize that playing golf, even in your hometown, may be the perfect vacation. It is hard to imagine a better family activity than golf. Take your family golfing and enjoy a day outside:
- Walking through beautiful rolling fairways,
- Sipping on some cool lemonade,
- Sharing special conversation, and
- Simply spending quality time with each other.
