There is nothing more exciting than seeing a new young player discover the challenge and intricacy of the game. As a life-long individual sport, golf teaches healthy competition in addition to self-discipline, dedication and of course passion.
Hawley, PA (PRWEB) August 01, 2013
With golf season in full swing, Woodloch Springs championship-style Poconos golf course is on PAR to have a record breaking year with the amount of new golfers taking to the course. After watching Mickelson’s stellar performance in the British Open, the pros at The Country Club at Woodloch Springs are hoping that players act upon their hankering to get out on the course during National Golf Month this August.
Opened in 1992, as part of the all-inclusive family resort, Woodloch Pines, Woodloch Springs offers players a unique destination providing a challenging course for players of all levels. As a nationally-recognized golf course and a member of the PGA affiliate courses with 18 spectacular holes within 90 miles of Manhattan, the course provides a top-tier destination without the sacrifice of long travel times.
In keeping with Woodloch’s time-honored tradition of hospitality and family fun, the Pocono golf course at Woodloch Springs is a family-friendly course, dedicated to growing the game of golf and features a 16-acre, state-of-the-art teaching facility for lessons tailored to each player’s individual needs. John Pillar, Director of Golf at Woodloch Springs, and Secretary of the Philadelphia Section PGA, is recognized as one of America’s Top 50 Kids Teachers by US Kids Golf. He leads the Family Tee Program, which helps to ensure that future golfers have the opportunity to enjoy the integrity and camaraderie inherent in the sport. “There is nothing more exciting than seeing a new young player discover the challenge and intricacy of the game,” explains Pillar. “As a life-long individual sport, golf teaches healthy competition in addition to self-discipline, dedication and of course passion.”
The beauty of Woodloch Springs is its approach to promoting golf as a lifelong sport to golfers of all ages. As a Get Golf Ready facility sponsored by PLAY GOLF America, those new to golf learn all of the key components needed to play the course with confidence during a series of five one-hour lessons taught by Woodloch’s very own golf professionals.
Having recently purchased brand new, four-seat, family golf carts to accommodate those with young budding golfers, Woodloch Springs is pleased to offer a variety of new family-friendly promotions:
