A first-rate Junior Golf Program that provides basic instruction on the game's fundamentals is moving to Pierce County's Fort Steilacoom Golf Course.
The program starts June 25 and will be held every Monday morning in a group setting over a six-week period. The cost is $99.
Juniors ages 7 to 14 can bring their own clubs to Fort Steilacoom Golf Course, 8200 87th Ave SW in Lakewood. Merit pins will be earned in the areas of putting, playing around the greens, full swing, knowledge and scoring.
The objectives of the program are to teach golf traditions, expose the positive values that golfing situations can provide, offer the opportunity to learn from capable and responsible adults and to provide the opportunity to have fun playing the game. The program was previously offered at Lake Spanaway Golf Course.

The Fort Steilacoom course is a fun 9-hole course on 105 acres that has dual tees for an 18-hole round. Premier Golf Center operates the Fort Steilacoom and Lake Spanaway courses for Pierce County Parks and Recreation.
