Frequently Asked Questions
- What is a skills clinic? At Boundary Oak, the girls will break up into small groups and travel around in a circuit, learning putting, chipping, and full swing from the different instructors. The girls will learn the swing fundamentals, plus rules and etiquette and have a chance to practice on the course. Play days are also offered throughout the year at various sites, $5 green fees not included.
- Will my daughter need to buy her own clubs? No. We have plenty of clubs to loan, but some girls have their own clubs because they love the game so much!
- What is the proper attire? Golf shoes are not needed, but closed toed, flat soled shoes are required. Also, please tie your daughter's hair up to keep it out of her face.
- What if I don't send in my membership fee in before the first event? You may not receive the LPGA/USGA gift pack until late in the year.
