Golf Lessons & equipment
The Jim Horne Golf Foundation provides golf lessons to young students starting at age 7 and all lessons are given by Jim Horne. Mr. Horne has been teaching golf for more than 25 years and sharing his passion for the game of golf to his students has been joy for both him and the community.
The students receive:
1) Free golf lessons – lessons are once a week on Saturday during the school year
2) Free equipment – golf clubs & bag, golf glove, golf shoes and a JHGF golf shirt
3) Free local tournaments – Interclub and BDGA events
Golf lessons are held at:
The Wehrle Dome, 8230 Wehrle Dr, Williamsville, NY in the winter
The Airport Driving Range, 207 S. Young Rd, Williamsville, NY in the warmer months http://airportdrivingrange.com
We currently have 20 students in the 2018 season. If your child is interested in golf or you would like to know more about our organization, send a message on our contact page https://www.jimhornegolf.org/contact or call us at 716-294-6893.
The Jim Horne Golf Foundation is designated as a club by the Buffalo District Golf Association (BGDA) and therefore can participate the BDGA Interclub Junior Events. The Interclub events are weekly club matches in July and August and the schedules are created towards mid June.
We use River Oaks in Grand Island, NY as our home course. The Jim Horne Golf Foundation will provide all information related to the Interclub matches to the students. In addition, the Foundation will pay for the student’s application fee for any other BDGA Junior events.
