Hundreds of children will join professional golfers Dori Carter, Hannah Collier, and Lisa Ferrero on Tuesday, May 3 for a Junior Clinic at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Capitol Hill in Prattville. The clinic is sponsored by Alabama Power.
During the interactive clinic, children in third through fifth grade will learn about the game of golf and how it promotes core values, including honesty, integrity, responsibility, courtesy, sportsmanship and respect.
"Alabama Power is excited to be sponsoring the Junior Clinic again this year and to have Dori, Hannah and Lisa with us," said Leslie Sanders, vice president of Alabama Power’s Southern Division. "It’s a fantastic opportunity to teach children about golf and the great life lessons it can provide."
