ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Schools were out Monday, but that doesn't mean students got the day off from learning.
About twenty kids attended a day of golf, games and movies at First Tee of Albany. First Tee has a nine-hole short course, driving range, and learning center, where kids learn not only golf skills, but life lessons.
Chauncei Pettit said, "Golf is a game that you'll never wear out. Golf won't wear out none of your bones or stuff like that."
Walker Jenkins said, "I just think it's a fun sport and it teaches you not to get angry with stuff and teaches you patience."
Executive Director Burkett Carver said, "We make learning to play golf fun, consequently, they pick the game up and it's a game they can play for their entire lives, make new friends and again, learn something new."
The charge for the one day clinic was $25.
