DOWNEY - In honor of Junior Golfers Appreciation Month, kids ages 18 and younger can golf for only $1 at county golf courses during the month of July.The discount is applicable to kids who golf after 12 p.m., when accompanied with a regular adult fee, senior fee, twilight fee or super-twilight fee. County courses will also hold a free "Special Skills Day," with free lessons, clinics, skills challenge contests and other events that promote junior golf participation. Junior Golfers Appreciation Month was created on a motion by county supervisor Don Knabe. "Youth sports programs have traditionally been valuable recreational activities for the young residents of Los Angeles County," Knabe said. "Not only do they offer an opportunity for kids of all ages to learn new physical, social and mental skills, but youth sports also serve as a crime deterrent...This is a great way for us to show our appreciation to all of our junior golfers who use our county golf courses." There are 17 county golf courses in Los Angeles County, including Los Amigos Golf Course on Old River School Road in Downey.
