- August 6-8 from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for ages 5 to 9

Cost for residents who register online is $130 and $156 for non-residents. The program will be held at the Novi Oaks and Sports Center at 46844 West 12 Mile Road.
The Sticks for Kids program will introduce children to the game of golf, and participants will learn fundamentals such as stance, grip, swing, pitching, chipping and putting from local golf course professionals. Participants will benefit from the numerous life skills that are intrinsic to the game like etiquette, discipline, perseverance, integrity, sportsmanship and environmental stewardship.
No clubs? No problem. In addition to sponsoring the Sticks for Kids nationwide program, the Golf Course Builders Association of America Foundation (CGBAA) and the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) have provided 10 sets of junior golf clubs for Novi youth to use while discovering if golf is a sport they will enjoy for years to come.
Participants interested in learning more about the Sticks for Kids program may contact Recreation Supervisor Greg Morris at (248) 735-5646 or email@example.com. Additional information about the national Sticks for Kids program can be found at sticksforkids.org.
