Students to tee-up at Belle Park Fairways
May 27, 2015 -
About 100 Loyalist Collegiate and Vocational Institute students will get a swing at golf at Belle Park Fairways this Friday at an event sponsored by HR Doornecamp Construction Ltd.
"Belle Park Fairways is a great spot to try golf and practice golf skills. It's easily accessed by Kingston Transit – and we now offer hack golf, which makes it more fun to learn how to play," says Luke Follwell, director of recreation & leisure services.
Hack golf is played with a larger 38cm (15-inch) golf hole to make golf more enjoyable for new players of all ages.
"Belle Park is a fantastic community resource that is wonderful for all. Golf and all of the other activities that are possible help keep our kids healthy and active for life!" says Andrea Blackwell, teacher at Loyalist Collegiate and Vocational Institute.
The Golf Association of Ontario will bring its mobile van to the event along with Canadian Professional Golfers' Associations golf teaching pros Kristen MacLaren and Cuyler Hedley.
The students will be at Belle Park Fairways 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, May 29 to try golf. Twenty of them will be paired with experienced golfers to play the 9-hole course. The other 80 students will practice their swings on the driving range.
Belle Park Fairways, 731 Montreal St., is open daily from 7:30 a.m. to dusk. Play the 9-hole course any weekday for $16.95 or take a small bucket of golf balls out to the driving range for $6.73.
