It has five sets of tee boxes. It’s a 6,939 yard course that can be played from a variety of lengths, creating a challenging round for the advanced golfer but also a playable course for the novice.

Here is a chance for your junior golfer to get their feet wet and work toward bigger goals! No need to register. Just show up!

Kid Zone is on Saturday 12-6pm

Kid Zone, sponsored by The First Tee of North Florida, starts Saturday evening and you won’t want to miss it! Make sure your kids come to play Hippo BirdieBall! Hippo BirdieBall is an off-course golf “ball” that can be driven into a big hippo mouth (rather than the driving range! It’s really fun! The BirdieBall has won numerous awards and garnered a ton of recent attention in the golfing world. It’s a limited flight ball that looks like a napkin ring and will only fly 40 yards with a full swing. It feels like a golf ball coming off the clubface and reacts like a golf ball in flight. So kids can safely practice a hook, slice, draw and fade. The BirdieBall was the winner of “Best New Product” at the PGA merchandise show in 2005 when it was introduced to the pros!

Other fun activities in the Kid Zone include Italian Ice, a bounce house, airbrush body art, and more! It will be an awesome way for little future pros to get a taste for golf early. There is also free admission to the museum during the event!

From incredible awards ceremonies, to live music with Charlie Walker & Dustin Bradley, challenge hole games, food trucks and free 9 hole family golf, this is an event you don’t want to miss!
