Kids and Golfing – Suitable for Kids or Not

A lot of parents probably think this is not an appropriate sport for kids to  get involved in but I personally think it would be a great opportunity for kids to spread their wings and try something totally different.

Kids playing golf has the ability to teach kids how to learn good sportsmanship, it teaches kids how to be logical, it teaches kids how to make good decisions when on the golf course and face certain circumstances and how to handle them.

It can be a very positive experience for any kid, but you need to find out if it is something that really interests them.

Talk to your child and find out how they feel about the situation and take it from there.

Let them feel up close the emotion and competition of a true golf event. To even drop it down a notch take them to a miniature golf course and see how they react to that, it could give you a good gauge on how they feel about the game of golf.

  1. We have a heap of kids at our Club and they just love it. Unfortunately we don’t have an onsite coach so most of them are learning from other members as I am. They seem to really enjoy being with their friends and also being outdoors, I’m quite surprised at how non-competitive they are, it’s great to see.

    I’m just wondering how young do you think they could start playing? I reckon the youngest one at our Club might be 8 or 9.

    1. Well, i do not think there is a set age, i believe Tiger Woods was 5 when he first picked up a golf club, i guess it depends on your physical development and growth. I’m just glad that more kids are getting into golf. Thanks for your comment.
