The Hettinger golf course is putting on another Youth Golf Camp, May 29-31, for youth entering grades 3rd thru 8thYou don’t need to know anything at all about golf. In fact, it might be better if you don’t! You don’t even need to have golf clubs! We can provide those. Golf is a game you can play the rest of your life! Why not learn how at a young age! It’s great to be outside with your friends. Just attend camp and learn the basic fundamentals of golf: grip, stance, swing, putting, chipping, approaching, driving and rules. Cost is  $35/child.  Any questions, call Ted direct at 701-567-3666. Let’s play golf!
