Why Golf For Your Child?

  1. Age. Kids ages 6 to 9 have basic motor skills but have fewer complex motor skills. As a child matures, Golf is ideal for developing this motor complexity.
  2. Personal interest. Is your child drawn to Golf?
  3. Temperament. Playing golf assists children to develop social skills, personal responsibility and the ability to overcome challenges by themselves.
  4. Physical traits: You don’t have to be the strongest, fastest or tallest to play golf, in fact, Golf is a sport that caters for people of all abilities. 
  5. Your child’s schedule. You don’t need a formal competition, or a team of others to play golf. You can play as a group or even by yourself if you wish. Golf is a game that can be played seven days a week.
