As a member of roughly 12 Facebook Professional Golf Groups, I share and learn about new ideas and communications with other golf professionals around the world. I just found a very interesting article I thought I'd share with you about junior fitness and the benefits of playing golf. It was written by Teresa McEntire as a blog for Families.com in the Parenting Advice Section. Enjoy - it makes a lot of sense and is a great article for our youth and families living in The Landings community.
