Free clinics offered

The Frankfort Disc Golf Association will offer two free disc golf clinics for beginning players Tuesday and April 15 at 6 p.m. at East Frankfort Park.

New players will learn the rules and terms of disc golf, practice driving and putting and play a round of disc golf with the instructors.

The free clinic, offered in cooperation with the Frankfort Parks, Recreation and Historic Sites Department, is designed to help new players get a head start in learning a game the entire family can enjoy, said FDGA president Greg Resor.
