Hello families!

 What a great response from many of you excited about taking advantage of these “Social Distance Spring” lesson plans.  I wanted to clarify a few points for everyone.

  • All are welcome to participate!  A previous registration isn’t required.  We wanted to share the fun with all 2020 registered kids and all families who registered in 2019!
  • There is no fee to participate and you don’t have to fill out any forms to sign up.  Simply email me the names of the children participating so I can add them to the raffle drawing for our gift pack!
  • If you are unable to participate right now, no worries, feel free to jump in anytime!

 Remember – please continue to submit your videos of how you #GolfAtHome and show your core values. We hope to post content on social media daily!  Please submit videos here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/X31EkAhazN5uBKog6

 For those of you who have paid for the spring session at Washington, Briardale, or Grantwood; you can get a refund or you can apply that enrollment fee as a donation to help sustain our programming. For those that signed up through Meadowood and the Westlake rec center, you will receive a refund of your enrollment fee from the rec department directly.

For those that do want a refund, please be patient with us as we will issue you a physical check for your enrollment fee less a $5 administrative processing fee .  These checks are completed at our offices and once we are able to return to our office space, we can create and mail those checks we anticipate having refund checks completed by Mid-May.

Please let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to a fun Spring!
