Why Children Should be Introduced to Golf

May 24th, 2022



Coaches are frequently asked why children should play golf.  The answer is simple to those who teach every day and see the impact the sport makes on today’s youth.  Golf is a sport for all; young, old, male, female, competitive, recreational, those with adaptive needs and those who simply want to enjoy the outdoors with their peers.  It is a sport we can play for a lifetime and one in which we can learn many life lessons from.  It teaches social skills, athletic movements, and character traits that may not be as prevalent in other sports.  Children are exposed to playing with others whom they may not know, forcing them to properly introduce themselves, deal with conflict, be honest, play with those of different abilities and so much more.  Golf is extremely relatable to daily life, which is why it is so important for our youth to have the opportunity to experience it in some way, shape or form.  It is a sport in which families can participate together, regardless of ability.  It truly is a one of a kind when it comes to life skills and being a game of a lifetime.  If your child has not yet been exposed to the sport, summer camps are a great way to make the introduction!  Please CLICK HERE to find a location near you!
