Have you been trying to get your children into golf and it has turned out to be harder than expected. The root of the problem could be that unlike nearly every other sport, you can’t just go play golf. Before you can play the game, or even step on a real golf course, you have to learn how to hit the ball, chip, and putt. Since kids are not exactly into practice, this can make breaking into the sport even more difficult.
Make The Game Easier
Children and beginners simply feel the game of golf is too difficult. The first step would be to make the game easier to learn and play. Earl Woods would have young Tiger Woods tee off from yardages far shorter than any of the standard boxes. He would then make up a new stroke count for par. In other words, Tiger might play a 140 yard par 6. The result was that Tiger got used to breaking par from a very young age. Create attainable goals to measure yourself as golf is set up to measure against par. Setting up the course so there is a chance to make par may require you to start from a place other than even the red tees.
Let The Kids Call The Shots
Kids just want to have fun so let them call the shots! Let them explore the game on their own while you follow them around and explain the things they’re curious about. We understand every parent wants their child to learn the game the right way, however, allowing them to get a love for the sport is far more important.

Take your child out for practice in the late evening or at a time when it’s not crowded.
