PHOENIX — For the 34th year, the Junior Golf Association of Arizona is offering free clinics for young kids this month.

The 2022 Itty Bitty Open event is open to all kids 3-5 years old at 22 locations in the Valley on Saturday, Jan. 15.

Kids can learn basic skills from PGA and LPGA professionals. From there, they participate in non-competitive games and tournaments.

Golfers will receive a set of plastic clubs (right-handed), balls, a bag, and a visor.

Each golfer needs an adult “caddie” with them and must register online by Jan. 9.

At each session, special prizes will be given for “Best Dressed Golfer and Caddie Team.”


Sessions are held at 9, 10, and 11 a.m. at each location.
