Youth Golf Day - Saturday, May 6, 2017

The annual Attleboro Youth Golf Day is held the 1st Saturday in May of each year. The event, for beginners and skilled players alike, is a day for the youngsters ages 6 to 16 to enjoy a golf clinic, play a few holes of golf, enjoy a cookout and free raffle prizes. Due to the generosity of our sponsors all of the days events are free of charge for the kids.

Youth Center


The Attleboro Youth Center is an after school program for the children of Attleboro. The Youth Center is funded by grants from Community Development of Attleboro and the United Way. This support allows us to offer a wide range of supervised after school activities.

Director


Tim Killion, Attleboro Recreation's Program Coordinator serves as the Youth Center Director. Working with kids on both the group and a one-to-one basis, Tim and his able staff are positive role models who work to instill a strong sense of values within children participating.

Locations


For many years Locust Valley Golf Course served as host for Youth Golf Day activities. Their generosity in donating the course for many years is greatly appreciated. In 2015 the event moved to M.G.A. Links in Norton as a Par 3 course is better suited for the kids. Like Locust Valley in the past, their donation of the course for the day allows 100% of proceeds to go directly to supporting the Attleboro Youth Center and Attleboro Recreation.

Sponsors


The Attleboro Area Golf Association (AAGA) sponsors the Golf Clinic. Members of the AAGA work with Highland Country Club Professional Drew Chapman and members of the M.G.A. Links staff in conducting the clinic. Many thanks go out to all who give up a prime Saturday morning, early in the golf season, to help introduce young girls and boys to the wonderful game of golf. Youngsters will go through three stations: putting, chipping and driving.


Unique Staff


A unique aspect of our golf day is that children who participate in Youth Center activities throughout the year serve as support staff for the day's activities. From registering participants, to serving soft drinks, to hauling trash - the kids who benefit from the day's proceeds will be active participants in making it happen.

Come join us for a great family event for a great cause !!!
