(Apple Valley)–The Town of Apple Valley has teamed up with the PGA of America and U.S. Kids Golf to become a PGA Family Course Facility that is more friendly to players of all skill levels and ages. Several new teeing options make Apple Valley Golf Course an ideal facility for beginning golfers and those wanting to improve their game.
The PGA Family Course uses two sets of tees that scale the golf course for players whose drives are 150 yards or less. This allows players the opportunity to make pars and birdies by playing a yardage that enables them to reach the green in fewer strokes. These tees will open for play on Labor Day Weekend.
“A PGA Family Course lets golfers of all abilities enjoy their golf experience and grow the game of golf,” explained Apple Valley Golf Course Manager Eric Fisher. “The program will be perfect for kids, beginning golfers and families who want to enjoy a day on the ‘links’. ”
In addition to the new markers, the course also unveiled new tee boxes aimed at providing players more of a choice depending on ability. The yardage on the new tees are:
- Black Tees 6,805 yards
- Blue Tees 6,477 yards
- White Tees 6,228 yards
- Gold 5,929 yards
- Green 5,139 yards
PGA Family Course Tees:
- Forward tee 2 (Gold) 4,057 yards
- Forward tee 1 (Blue) 3,035 yards
“For most young and beginning players, the existing forward tees were still too long,” Fisher explained. “With the new choices, Apple Valley Golf Course now is fun for all golfers, whether they are a scratch golfer that has played for years or a beginner just taking up the game.”
