Laconia Adult Education
Get Ready For Golf!
Laconia Adult Education will be offering group Beginning and
Intermediate Golf Classes beginning on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at
Laconia Country Club. Now is the time to get ready to learn how to
play golf or improve your golf game. Classes will be taught by
Jason Baldini, Laconia Country Club Assistant Golf Professional. He
will also serve as the new Fall Laconia High School Golf Team Coach.
If you have ever thought about picking up a golf club, either for
the first time or returning once again to the game, you can make
golf your sport for a lifetime. Taking lessons simply makes learning
the game much easier and improvement in your play takes place much
faster. This will increase your enjoyment of the sport not to
mention the safety of those around you on the golf course.
You will learn the 5 basic body actions necessary to achieve maximum
results in attaining your golfing goal of playing well in a
relatively short period of time. Holding the club properly and
learning how to hit a golf ball are acquired skills. Grip, swing,
set up and proper etiquette are all important points in learning the
language of golf.
To enroll in the group golf classes or for more information, please
contact the Laconia Adult Education Office at 524-5712. Get ready
for golf this spring and begin to enjoy countless years of lifelong
learning. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to swing a golf
club. However, there are universal basics that all golfers should
strive to achieve and this is a wonderful way to begin to play par
