The Houlton Community Golf Club and Vital Pathways have teamed up to provide an exceptional opportunity for adults who want to learn the game of golf. Golf for Life is a free program available to the first 50 adults who sign up.

The program includes 5 one-hour group lessons which teach warm-up and stretching, how to hold the club, getting comfortable with the full swing, golf terms, rules and scoring. You will also learn how to care for and have more fun on the course, helpful shortcuts to save time while you play, and lots more!

Golf clubs and balls will be provided to anyone who needs them, all at no charge.

For more information or to enroll in this free program, call David Grant at 538-8333.

The Golf for Life program is funded through donations to Vital Pathways, a local 501 (c) (3) non-profit charity that supports healthy communities in northern Maine.  For more info, visit
