EAGLE-VAIL — The Eagle-Vail Golf Club will launch a pair summer junior golf programs, announced Ben Welsh, director of the Eagle-Vail Golf Club.

The PGA Junior League and First Tee Junior Golf Camps programs and practices begin May 31, with costs ranging from $20 to $130.

“We are so excited to get these juniors into the game of golf,” Welsh said. “The kids had such an amazing time last year and it’s a fun, social and inclusive opportunity.”

PGA Junior League programs

PGA Junior League is for golfers from around the valley, ages 9 to 13. They’ll play on a team coached by golf professionals and get to compete against other players on their level.

Teams meet once a week at the home course for coached practice and will play weekly nine-hole matches on competing teams’ courses throughout the Vail Valley. The cost is $175 per child for the summer, which includes uniform and all course fees.

The deadline for registration is Friday.

First Tee of Eagle County

First Tee is four-day junior golf camps, conducted in partnership with the First Tee of Eagle County.

“The First Tee is a national organization that helps reach underprivileged youth through sponsorships, teaches life skills through the game of golf and is a great compliment to our local programming,” Welsh said.

Eagle-Vail’s camps are available June 6-9, July 11-14 and August 8-11 from 9 a.m. to noon and cost $129 per child.

Scholarships are available by contacting the First Tee of Eagle County.
