Area youth have been busy all week at the Kalona Golf Course for their annual youth golf camp. The Mid-Prairie boys and girls golf programs and the Iowa Mennonite School boys and girls golf programs in collaboration with the Kalona Golf Course and Kalona Optimists hold the event every year. Mid-Prairie head girls golf coach Tracy McArtor talked with KCII this week about what they will cover with the athletes. “We have stations set up to work on putting, chipping a driving range and more. We are working on a lot of the basic fundamentals. We want to get them associated with what we are going to teach them down the road if they go out for golf in high school.”
McArtor, Mid-Prairie boys golf coach Kelby Bender and IMS boys and girls golf coach Steve Nelson lead instruction. The final day of camp is today.
