Junior Golf- It Starts With the Appreciation of the Game

How to Start Off Your Junior Golfer

Appreciating the game of golf at a young age is a real gift, and parents should try to give that gift to their kids.  Junior golf should learn the game the right way. Exercise training programs and other essentials are a start.  First your child should develop an appreciation of the game.  That means learning how to have fun on the golf course, having knowledge of basic golf etiquette and the rules of golf, and understand the obstacles and challenges that go into becoming an accomplished golfer.

The Initial Steps to Learning Junior Golf

imagesDo you want to get your youngster off on the right foot with their golf game?  Start by finding a golf instructor that has experience teaching young players.  There is a big difference in the approach to take training youngsters as compared to adults, and a great golf instructor might not be able to get his points across to junior golfers. Also, ask the advice of a golf pro regarding equipment, as that will be an important part of building his or her game.  Check the internet for more thoughts on proposed training methods.

The most you can do as a parent or mentor is to stay positive and make the game of golf a pleasant experience.  Providing your time and not putting any pressure for improvement will be the best you can do.  If the golfing experience is what it should be, your young golfer will put all the pressure on himself to keep motivated to become better.

We also have on our website a few articles on golf basics.  Golf swing tips for new golfers talks about some of the foundation pieces to the golf swing, and the simple golf swing deals with simplifying, not complicating the golf swing.  And have fun while you and your youngster embark on your golf journey together.
