RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- A local golf course is giving parents a bit of a financial break by offering a discount for bringing their children to the range.

It's part of the Play Golf America program - an effort to make the game more affordable for new and experienced golfers across the country.

Sunday the Washoe Golf Course is offering 2-for-1 buckets of range balls for families with children and 6-year-old Katie is getting into the swing of things.

"I like golfing and I like golfing with my friends," Katie said.

Her 7-year-old friend Alex already swings like a pro. He says he likes to golf with his parents.

"We like sometimes go on the real course and play for fun," Alex said.

Now Alex is getting in extra practice and some advice from his dad.

"I just watch them learn and hit the good shots from time to time," said his dad, Alexandre Doubinkine.

Doubinkine said he's looking forward to when his sons beat him out on the course.

"They're young now, but once they grow up you'd like to go out and have a round of golf with them," Doubinkine said.

Garrett Olson said the same thing about his 7-year-old son Tyler.

"I don't feel guilty on Sundays. I can go out and play golf I get to bring the kids with me," Olson said.

The course is offering 2-for-1 buckets of balls at its first "bring your kids to the range day" of the summer.

"We want to drive the kids to come out," said Assistant Golf Pro Greg Wenzel.

Wenzel said it's good for the kids to be active and helps create future golfers.

"They get to actually see that it's real," Wenzel said. "Nothing beats actually getting out there and hitting a ball and seeing it fly."

For kids like Katie it's creating memories and milestones.

"Once I hit it past the 100," Katie said.
