For the youth of Winston-Salem, there are quite a few things that can be expected in the summer. Along with the high temperatures, no school and sunshine, another constant has been the annual Vic Johnson Junior Golf Clinic. This year, the clinic was held at the Reynolds Park Golf Course with regular participants from the Roscoe Anderson and Martin Luther King Recreation Centers.
In an effort to teach the game of golf to youth ages 8-15, who may not have had opportunities to learn the game, Johnson sponsors the clinic annually. The clinic, which was held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, served approximately 80 students from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Reynolds Park Golf Course. The clinic started on June 12th and ended on July 5th. The highlight of the clinic was the closing program held on July 5th, when Winston-Salem State University Director of Athletics William “Bill” Hayes served as speaker.
