Billy Casper Golf (BCG) … owner and operator of more than 125 golf courses, country clubs and resorts … has launched a “Kids Play Free” program at its courses nationwide.
“Kids Play Free” is designed for busy families to spend time together and is an opportunity for golfer parents to affordably introduce the game to their children. Each junior golfer (age five to 17) plays free with each paying adult; details of the promotion vary at participating BCG courses.
“This is a powerful grow-the-game program,” says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. “We’re proud so many Billy Casper Golf courses are helping to produce the next generation of golf enthusiasts.”
The genesis of BCG’s emphasis on promoting junior golf lies with its company namesake, the legendary Billy Casper, Masters and two-time U.S. Open winner. Casper has personally volunteered thousands of hours teaching golf and life skills to youth.
“The great game of golf must live on,” says Casper, who turned 80 on June 24. “Our company is leading the way by teaching golf-swing mechanics and character-building traits of honesty, respect and camaraderie.”
