Lyman Orchards to Host Free Junior Golf Day

Middlefield, Conn. (May 5, 2015) – After such a long, cold winter season, kids of all ages and their families are invited to a fun day filled with an assortment of activities, games, and food. Lyman Orchards Golf Center, one of the region’s top golf facilities, will be hosting a Junior Golf Day at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 9th. Throughout the day, children will interact with talented staff members and experience a variety of ways to enjoy the game of golf.

Junior Golf Day will feature the following events:

Golfzilla!: Standing nearly 20 feet tall, Golfzilla is a large inflatable lizard you can hit golf balls in to and is the king of the BirdieBall inflatable targeting system.

Meet and Greet with Joe D’Ambrosio and Andy Gresh of WTIC News Talk 1080: Meet the voice of the UCONN Huskies, Joe D'Ambrosio, and his new radio partner, Andy Gresh. Joe and Andy will swing some clubs, sign autographs and more from 11a.m. – 1 p.m.

Free Golf: All Juniors who are accompanied by a paying adult will get to play for free. 

Free Clinics: Before heading out to the links, make sure to check out of one of the free clinics. A short game clinic will be held at 10:15 a.m. followed by a full swing clinic at 12:15 p.m.

Drive, Chip and Putt Challenges: Contestants will compete for great prizes in putting, short game and full swing challenges.

Technology Play Zone: How fast do you swing the club? How far do you hit the ball? Are your clubs right for you? The Launch Monitor station will be available on the driving range for an in-depth look at these stats.

Additional Activities: The Apple Barrel Grill will be serving delicious food throughout the event and the Golf Center will be open for all of your equipment needs. There will be raffle prizes and closest to the pin contests throughout the entire day as well.

“We’re truly excited to introduce children to the wonderful game of golf,” said Jason Beffert, general manager, Lyman Orchards Golf Club. “This event is one that we look forward to all year. It’s an incredible way for juniors to enjoy beautiful spring weather with their families while improving their golf abilities.”

In addition to the events scheduled, Lyman Orchards is offering its Junior Golf Camp tournament and league play opportunities. There will be a 10 percent discount if you register on Junior Golf Day. All interested in these offerings should visit the information area during the event.
