The Twin Oaks Golf Complex — the short nine-hole facility along Kansas Highway 10 between Eudora and Lawrence — has announced a partnership with The First Tee of Greater Kansas City. The nonprofit golf organization has chosen Twin Oaks to become its Douglas County affiliate, meaning it will be the only course in Douglas County to offer The First Tee’s popular youth golfing classes.
The golf course will be kicking off the first of those classes soon. The course will offer a nine-week program for any youths between the ages of 7 and 17. The entire nine week program — it meets every Wednesday from 5:45 p.m. to 7 p.m. — cost $75, and the course will even loan students golf clubs, if needed. Parents who are interested in enrolling their children in the program are encouraged to attend a parent’s meeting at 2 p.m. Saturday at Twin Oaks Golf, 1326 E. 1900 Road.
