News Release: Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks & Recreation Authority

The Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks & Recreation Authority and Academy Sports + Outdoors are offering a free youth golf clinic April 29th as part of the South Georgia Classic Tournament at Kinderlou Forest Golf Club.
The VLPRA Junior Clinic presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors is no ordinary game of putt-putt.
