COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A special opportunity is coming up for girls in the Columbia area who are interested in learning about golf.

The James E. Clyburn Golf Center is hosting free golf clinics for girls ages 5 to 18.

The center is named for U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn and is administered through a partnership between the Ladies Professional Golf Association Foundation and the United States Golf Association. Its programs focus on inspiring girls to feel confident, build positive self-esteem and live active and healthy lifestyles.

Officials say the clinics will be held from 10:30 a.m. to noon every other Saturday through October. Attendees will learn fundamentals, etiquette and rules of golf, and no equipment is necessary.
