Indian Creek Golf Course teams up with BBBS

Big Brothers Big Sisters at Indian Creek Golf Course.

Indian Creek Golf Course hosted Big Brothers Big Sisters’ first ever golf clinic on May 16. Mark Gradin, Director of Instruction and Player Development, and a few volunteers from the Hood River Valley girls and boys golf teams generously presented the event.

On a windy but beautiful day on the course, approximately 20 program participants, including Bigs and Littles from Hood River, Klickitat, and Wasco counties, attended the event, where they learned the health benefits of golf, as well as putting and driving techniques.

Little Brother Zach said he loves playing golf, but he’s never had the opportunity to play at such a nice facility as Indian Creek. Walt Notter, Zach’s Big Brother of almost seven years, watched proudly as Zach improved his accuracy on his putts and follow through on his drives.
