Jessamine County, Kentucky (LEX 18) — Golf fans of all ages were connected during Family Day at the Barbasol Championship.
At the rainy Saturday tournament, the kids pushed their faces with ice cream, ran and played in a makeshift mud pit.
Guests enjoyed free youth golf clinics, bounce houses, shaving room contests and giveaways.
Children under the age of 15 were admitted free of charge.
Lauren Vernon, Marketing and Membership Director of the Kennet Race Golf Club, helped organize the event.
She says it’s great that the proceeds from the tournament affect four different charities.
“Family Day is a great opportunity for families to take their kids out, go out and enjoy their morning activities. Not only for the tournament, but also for the charity components, it’s fascinating and the tournament is really fun.” Said Vernon.
The organizer estimates that about 200 people participated.
Vernon says attendance has increased each year and vendors feel more comfortable.
