A new youth golf course was opened at Lakeview Golf Course.
The course simply moves up the tees for kids on the regular course. The money to do the work was donated by the Meridian Downtown Optimist Club.
Club officials say it's a way for kids to be able to play a sport that so many people enjoy.
"What we do, and the pros here in town, is that they provide an opportunity for kids to come out and learn a sport they can play all of their lives," said Bo White of the Meridian Downtown Optimist Club. "You can play golf from age 6 to 96."
The club also funded the purchase of eleven sets of youth golf clubs that will allow kids to come out and play golf for free.
