Councilwoman Holton Stewart partners with First Tee -Louisville to bring Golf to children in District 25
Louisville – Is there a future Justin Thomas or Tiger Woods in Louisville waiting to learn a sport that has universal appeal to people of all ages but who may never have the opportunity?
This week, Councilwoman Amy Holton Stewart (D-25) and First Tee - Louisville are giving 25 young people the chance to learn the sport of golf along with life skills at the Bobby Nichols Golf Course in Metro Louisville.
“Our kids need more constructive activities to do in our community and Bobby Nichols is a gem for us out here,” said Councilwoman Holton Stewart “When I came onto the Council I wanted to offer an opportunity for our children to learn new skills, showcase this course and enjoy the beauty of this park.”
Starting Monday this week and continuing until Friday July 30th, the free clinic’s goal has been to introduce golf to children in the community that may or may not have had the opportunity to participate in the past. A van has been made available to provide transportation at specific meeting locations in the community to help transport children who can't get to Bobby Nichols. The camp operates from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. each day this week.
"We are thrilled to be able to provide this camp in partnership with Amy and one of our longtime partner facilities, Bobby Nichols Golf Course. Inclusivity and making sure everyone is invited to this great game is our goal, this camp allows us to build more game changers in our community,” says Blake Hardesty of First Tee.
This beautiful 9-hole course is named for Louisvillian and PGA professional Bobby Nichols. Located in Waverly Park, which has an archery range, fishing lake, and hiking/mountain biking trails for family activities.
The course is located off 4301 E Pages Lane.
