Tee Off With the Mustangs on June 10
Wild Mustang Ranch in Lyons, located at 560 C Swick Circle, will be welcoming the public for a unique golfing experience on Saturday, June 10.
According to the Wild Mustang Ranch staff, hosting this event seemed to be the perfect way to bring individuals out to the ranch, and allow them to learn about mustangs. “It is a way to get people out here that enjoy golf, or maybe have never even played, to give them an opportunity to be introduced to the game, play it in a fun way, and be introduced to our mustangs,” Director of golf programs on the ranch Alan Fowler remarked.
This event is close to Fowler’s heart, as he has been very successful at the game of golf through every level of competitive play, from national junior golf to the professional ranks. “I started playing golf when I was about 9 or 10 years-old. My grand parents had a farm with two domestic horses, but I learned to play golf by taking some old clubs and going out and hitting balls in the pastures,” he reminisced.
Fowler continued, “That’s actually how golf was invented in Scotland.
Shepherds tending their flocks would get sticks and hit rocks in the field. Then, human creativity decided ‘let’s put a target up and work toward that,’ and that’s how it all started.
What we’re doing here is very similar to that.”
The event will begin at 9:30 a.m. and is open to individuals of all ages, abilities, and experience.
