First Things First
No matter what age your child is when they get started, make sure that having fun is the number1 priority. Whatever your aspirations may be for your child with golf, you need to remember (and remind your child) that it's just a game.
Today’s kids need more than ever to get away from the computer games and get out and socialize with real people not virtual people. Golf is by far the very best way to accomplish that and set your kids up for success in life.
Here is Why:
Anyone Can Play: Golfers come in all shapes and sizes. You don’t have to be particularly strong, tall, lean or fast to succeed. Golf champions come in every shape and size imaginable. It’s never too early to start.
Lifelong friendships: You never know who you will meet on a golf course, but it’s one of the easiest place in the world to make friends.
Prepare for business: It’s hard to think about it now but kids grow up and the people they meet as children can play a huge part in their success later in life.
Time Spent Outdoors: In today’s world of video games, smart phones and child obesity, it can be hard to drag your son or daughter off the couch. Golf is the perfect excuse to spend an entire family day together.
Important Life Lessons: Golf closely parallels real life as one experiences the highs and lows of the game. The range of experience, from birdies to bogeys, rewards a young person's ability to keep each shot in perspective, manage one's emotions, maintain a positive outlook and focus on the shot at hand.
Spend time with family: Golf is a game that encourages family participation. When children are young, they enjoy doing just about anything with you (but it doesn’t long last so start now).
It’s FUN: This should probably be at the top of the list, but one of the best reasons to get your son or daughter involved with golf is that they’ll have an absolute blast.
There are a million things you can buy your kids in the hope that it helps them learn and grow, only a few make a real impact. Encouraging them to play golf is one!
