Summer is in full swing and that mean it's time to hit the links as the junior golfers of Laredo are preparring for their first big tournament. The Laredo Junior Golf Association is a joint non-profit effort between the Casa Blanca Golf Course and the Laredo Country Club to popularize the sport here in the Gateway City.
More than anything, they hope to bring golf to kids that might not have an opportunity to ever pick up a club without it.
In addition to these clinics they also have a number of tournaments here in the Gateway City. This Friday they will host the Webb County Junior Golf Championship, which is the first of two chances for kids to qualify for a traveling team. That team plays against some of the best golfers in the region and state.
