SNAG Golf for Kids 4-10: Ann Arbor Kids Learn Golf

A few weeks back I mentioned that Ypsilanti's Pine View Golf course allowed kids to golf for $1, and I've been trying to track down a few golf courses where kids could golf with mom or dad for free (or very cheaply), however I did run across this great opportunity for Ann Arbor kids to learn golf. The weather is right, so why not teach your kids to golf in this fun, and unique environment?

Children with have a great time learning to golf with SNAG!
SNAG, is a t-ball style teaching method for kids golf. The kids meet once a week for 1 hour for six weeks. Classes are taught at Burns Park, and in the event of in-climate weather, lessons are held inside the Ann Arbor Senior Center which is adjacent to the park.  The cost is just $89/student for 12 classes, twice a week for 6 weeks.
