Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department’s Eagle Bend Golf Course and Learning Center is hosting Welcome to Golf, instructional clinics designed to give participants their first swing at golf.

Welcome to Golf clinics include step-by-step instructions of golf fundamentals, explained in simple terms. Golfers are encouraged to sign up for multiple clinics, as the instructor will build upon previous lessons for returning students. Clinics begin 11 a.m.-noon Saturday, March 17, at Eagle Bend Golf Course, 1250 E. 902 Road. Clinics are $25 per person, per session.  The clinics will run at the same time on Saturdays through May 19.
