Spots are filling quickly as more than 100 kids ages 14 and under are expected to participate in the rapidly expanding league now in its second year. Running April to May at five CPD courses managed by Billy Casper Golf, registration is $150 per player in includes instruction, team uniform polo, hat, glove, balls, bag tag, tees, ball marker and other gifts. Hurry, registration ends March 25.
