Twin Oaks to host camp, junior tourney

DUNCAN — With golf season now in full swing, kids will get the chance to learn more about the game during a camp hosted in town at the start of next month.

From June 3-7, the Twin Oaks Golf Course will host the Twin Oaks Golf Camp, led by instructor John Strickland.

A handful of guest instructors will also teach at the camp, including former Duncan head golf coach Eddie Cox.

The four-day camp will include time spent on the driving range, putting and chipping green and on the venue’s golf course. Included in the camp will be the ability to compete in the Twin Oaks Junior Golf Tournament on June 5.

While at the range, camp members will learn about the proper grip, stance, alignment, pre-shot routine, connection and more.

The putting and chipping green will play host to games, drills and tournament focused on helping with the campers’ skills in the short game.

On the course, the kids will be taught about course management, etiquette, rules and general knowledge.

Halfway through the camp, the members will get the chance to compete in the course’s junior tournament, which includes five different age divisions.

The 11-year-old and under and 12-13 year-old girls divisions will play 9 holes, while the 12-13 year-old boys, 14-15 year-old boys and girls and 16-year-old to 2010 graduates will play 18 holes.

Medals for the top five finishers in each division will be rewarded,

The cost for the camp, which will take place from 8:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., is $135 per student. The $25 entry fee into the junior tournament will be included in the camp fee.

Signing up for the camp as soon as possible is advised, as they will can only take the first 30 paid golfers.

To sign up, send a check to Strickland at 2319 Sunset Drive in Duncan.

Those interested in solely competing at the tournament must bring entry forms to Strickland at 2319 Sunset Drive in Duncan or drop them off at Twin Oaks by June 4. Checks must be made out to Twin Oaks.

For more information on either event, contact John Strickland at (580)-467-0515.
