Golfing doesn’t have to be a rich man’s sport. Particularly not at 4 p.m. Saturday, when the Montgomery County Revenue Authority will offer free one-hour family golf clinics at all of the county’s nine public golf courses, including Sligo Creek and Poolesville.

If you don’t have your own clubs and balls, the courses will provide equipment free of charge for the clinics.

If Saturday’s free clinic gets your family (a minimum of one adult age 18 or older and one child age 17 or younger) hooked, you can enjoy a discounted rate of $10 per person, per round (about half-price) at 5 p.m. daily throughout the summer.

To make it super-family-friendly, the courses have been redesigned to include a beginner’s short course within the main golf course. This new course-within-a-course design enables players of varying abilities and ages to shoot similar strokes.
