NISSWA -- The Pines and The Preserve golf courses will offer free golf to daughters, granddaughters and nieces after noon April 26-30.
This offer is valid when the girls are accompanied by a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or legal guardian who pays the regular daily rate. The girls must be age 21 or younger.
"Take Your Daughter to the Golf Course Week," which coincides with "Take Your Daughter to Work" day scheduled Thursday, April 27, is part of the National Golf Course Owners Association's larger effort to increase interest in the game of golf through the "Get Linked. Play Golf" player development campaign.
"Although 22 percent of all golfers are female, only 13 percent of junior golfers are girls," said Bill Moseley, director of golf for Grand View Lodge Resort and The Pines and Preserve golf courses. "We feel it is important to encourage more junior girls to get involved in the game of golf so that they can experience the fun of the game and benefit from the life skills that golf has to offer."
The Pines is a 27-hole championship golf facility located on County Road 77 in Nisswa and The Preserve is an 18-hole championship golf facility located off County Road 107 near Pequot Lakes. The Preserve received the NGCOA's highest state award when it was bestowed "Minnesota Golf Course of the Year" for 1999. More information about the courses and their facilities can be found at www.grandviewgolf.com.
The NGCOA, representing more than 3,800 courses, is an international trade association devoted exclusively to furthering the interests of golf course owners and operators. The Minnesota Golf Course Owners Association is the state body supporting the ideals of the NGCOA. The state chapter has 200-plus members and was the first NGCOA chapter to be founded.
