……”Where the Dream Begins”
The life lessons young people learn from the game of golf transcend anything that can be put on a scorecard or that might even appear in a headline on a sports page. Honesty, integrity and respect for rules are just a few of the skills that come part and parcel with learning how to chip, drive and putt.
The importance of all of this is never lost on the Professionals at Desert Lakes. Here, a young person will not only learn how to play a better game but also how to live a better life.
