Get yourself in the swing of things this summer and take a golf class offered by McHenry County College’s Continuing Education Department from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Fridays, July 10 through Aug. 7. Classes are taught at the Golf Academy at Terra Cotta, 5200 Pleasant Hill Road in Prairie Grove.
Participants will learn the basic fundamentals of golf, including grip, posture, ball position, and alignment, along with the basic skills of swinging a club, short game, etiquette and safety. Practice developing a simple, powerful, repeatable swing at the range and finish with the short game. Price includes practice balls during class and a voucher for one bucket of practice balls at the end of the program. Bring your own clubs, if you have them, including a driver, 7-iron, pitching or sand wedge and a putter. Contact the Golf Academy at Terra Cotta if you need to borrow clubs at (815) 355-4225. Classes will not be cancelled due to weather as the Golf Academy at Terra Cotta has an indoor facility.
Cost is $90. Use course code: NHE S46 001 when registering. Another class is offered from 10:30 a.m. to noon, Sept. 11 through Oct. 9 (course code: NHE S46 002).
