Boys and girls ages seven to 16 are invited to participate in a unique and free golf experience on May 31 at the Pitt Meadows Golf Club.

Junior Golf Day at the club was initially designed for the children of members, but this year is open to all who are interested, member-related or not.

The program is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., with a special trick shot demonstration at 2 p.m. by professional Brad Ewart, who played his junior golf at the Pitt Meadows club.

All those interested are asked to visit to pre-register. All registered participants will get putting and chipping instruction from the club’s golf professionals, get to hit balls at the grass tee driving range and enjoy a free BBQ. Parents accompanying the young golfers can also enjoy the free BBQ.

“There is no charge for participation by juniors interested in furthering their knowledge and experience with this wonderful sport, which people are able to enjoy from a very early age until they are, like some of our own members, into their nineties,” said Ted Rivers, who chairs the Pitt Meadows junior golf program.

He said the club’s junior membership categories are open to ages seven to 18 years, and an extended junior membership is open to ages 19 to 23.
