Coming up, there is going to be a free family golf day event thanks to the Rockford Park District.

I've heard the saying, "The family that golfs together, stays together," several times in my life.

Okay, I might have just made that up but hanging out and doing things with your family is never a bad thing.

Especially, if they are fun and free.

The Rockford Park District is hosting an all-new "Family Golf Day" event.

It's on Sunday, August 19th from 1pm - 5pm at the Aldeen Practice Centre, 1902 Reid Farm Road in Rockford.

Families are invited to participate in a FREE fun day of golf, golf-related activities, golf skill clinics, contests, games, and more.

Contests include chipping, putting, longest drive for kids, Golfzilla, and chance to win a Rockford Park District 2019 Junior Birdie membership.

There will be food specials available for purchase.

Free clinics will include putting at 2pm, chipping at 3pm, and full swing at 4pm.
