Golf is not a sport typically offered in schools, but is a great way for children to learn focus, patience and flexibility. While young children may not have the endurance for a full 18 holes of golf, they can have great fun hitting the course for speed golf or improving their swing on the driving range. Bolingbrook Golf Club has the perfect event to spark your child's interest in golf, with a free Junior Golf Open House on Saturday, March 1. Read on for more about youth golf and this exciting event.
What golf has to offer to young players
Playing golf can nurture a healthy competitive spirit in your child and build confidence as his or her game improves. You might also find that playing golf is an excellent way to bond with your child while getting healthy exercise. The sport of golf is often a lifelong hobby, and learning the game early can make your child a competent player.
When children should start playing
Some children may pick their first club as early as five, but it is never too late to start playing the game. Because golf has grown in popularity among young players, there is an excellent selection of specially sized equipment available for the smallest golf enthusiasts.
