Lewis and the Lady’Backs teach golf at the Jones Center

Over spring break, I visited the Jones Center in Springdale with my teammates. We had two groups of about twenty to thirty kids each. The kids were all very eager to learn, but I think all they really wanted to do was see how far they could hit it! Many of the kids said they had played golf before but for most of them it was only on a putt-putt course. So it was very rewarding to be able to teach kids how to play golf that probably would not have ever had the opportunity to even pick up a club. The kids were also able to hit a few putts each. They were so excited when they were able to make one in the hole. This reminded me of when I was younger and just learning how to play. In the end, our hope is that these kids see how much fun and rewarding golf can be, and also that golf is something they can play their entire life. — Stacy Lewis
