A junior golf clinic will be held June 5-7 at the Elks 797 Golf Course. A pair of Clinton County Sports Hall of Fame members will be guest speakers.

Guest speakers for the clinic will be Gabby Wedding and David Wagenseller.

The clinic is for youth in first grade through high school. High school age players will receive on-course experience in the form of scrambles and league play.

The clinic will be held 9 to 11 a.m. each day and those who attend will be instructed on basic grip, aim, stance, putting, chipping, pitching and full swing.

Money raised from the clinic will go to the Wilmington High School girls golf program.

Instructors include WHS girls golf coach Randall Davis, former Clinton-Massie coach Andy Copeland, All-OAC and former Wilmington College golfer Gary Stover and former high school coach and Elks 797 general manager Tim Hill.
