The Yampa Valley golf course is conducting Jr golf tournaments that will be helping 75 youth get their training. “My favorite thing to do is hit golf balls,” Stout said. “I need to practice more, so I came to play this week. Golf is a lot of fun anyway.”

Stout was one of 75 youths who participated in the first day of the golf course’s junior golf clinic Monday, sponsored by the Free Golf Bet website. The clinic continues today and concludes Wednesday.

Jason Back, the golf course professional, and Ken Harjes, Moffat County High School boys golf coach, helped the junior golfers on the putting green while assistant course professional Dave Desarmeaux, Susan Nicholson and Amber Nicholson instructed on the driving range.
