Goldsboro Municipal Golf Course now features the PGA Family Course.

The program, which was launched in a partnership with the PGA of America and U.S. Kids Golf, gives families the chance to play golf at GMGC in a non-intimidating environment.

The PGA Family Course Program enables Goldsboro Municipal Golf Course to turn the regulation golf course into a "short course" experience through the use of PGA Family Tee Markers. The Family Course Tee Markers are set at yardages that allow golfers to reach greens in regulation, shoot lower scores, play in less time and most importantly, have fun.

"The traditional golf course setup is not conducive to families enjoying the game together, because most regulation golf holes are far too long for kids and beginners, " said Dan Van Horn, Founder and CEO of U.S. Kids Golf.

"We're delighted that Goldsboro Municipal Golf Course has adopted the Family Course Program to make the golf experience more inviting for the whole family."

The introduction of shorter, family-friendly courses coincides with Play Golf America's Family Golf Month and Get Golf Ready initiatives, both of which are designed to make the transition into the game easy for golfers of all ages.

Goldsboro Municipal Golf Course becomes one of more than 1,500 golf courses nationwide that have installed the PGA Family Course.
