FORE!!! CRASH!!! The first word and sound that I heard the first time I played golf with my grandpa. I was six years old and I probably should not have been using my grandpas’ clubs. With that said, I should have had some kids golf club sets to try out. There are some really great affordable golf club sets for kids. But before you go out and purchase a set, we should probably first find out if your kids even want to play golf.
There are a few telling signs that they may be interested in. So let’s jump in and find out if you might be teaching the next Jack Nicklaus or Tiger Woods!!!

Is Your Child Ready to Play Golf?
Ok, so I’m not a golf professional or a coach, however, I have played a lot of golf with many different aged players. From a six-year-old starting out to middle school and high school-aged kids. I’ve also played against golfers aged 20 to 84 and received a tremendous amount of knowledge from all of them.
The first and most important thing I learned was to make sure the kids are having FUN. Young kid’s attention spans are very short and they are distracted easily.
If they’re not having fun they will definitely not want to continue. Be sure they are interested. Do they practice swings in the yard? Have they mentioned the game? Are they watching golf on t.v.?
Always have RESPECT for the game, equipment, and other players. Unfortunately, I have played with some very disrespectful players in my time and I know kids watch and mimic everything we do, so be sure to explain the rules and teach your kids golf etiquette, show them the importance of respecting the equipment and the game.
I also learned how important it is to ENCOURAGE, ENCOURAGE, ENCOURAGE. I’ve watched experienced golfers on the course that were very encouraging when playing with the younger golfers. It didn’t matter if it was a swing and a miss or a splash in the pond, they never highlighted the bad. So I think encouragement is key to having fun and keeping kids interested.
In My Experience…
My kids are old enough now that I have been starting to play again and they all want to go to the course with me. So I decided to see if they really wanted to learn or just horse around.
So I borrowed some kids’ clubs from the clubhouse and took them to the range. There I found out really quick like that my boys (ages 4 and 5) were not mature enough to learn. They got the putters in their hands and they didn’t do practice strokes they decided it was pirate sword fighting time.
My girls’ ages 9 and 12 seemed pretty interested and more mature so I tried to show them how to stand, and hold a club and take some practice swings. The only thing is both my girls are left-handed and I can not swing golf clubs lefty. But I noticed they were having some fun and laughing so I kept encouraging them to keep trying. They really started getting the hang of it after about a month.
So in my opinion, if your kids are asking about golf and wanting to go practice or you catch them watching golf on TV, my boys started watching and they asked: “When are we going to go back to the golf course?” They practice golf swings in the yard using whatever they can get their hands on and they play golfing video games. If your kids are showing any of these signs, they may be ready to play golf and grow to respect the game. If they are enjoying the outside and are with their family and friends I believe that your kids may truly enjoy the game.
What I do with my kids is to encourage them to have fun, meet new friends, and be respectful of the game and others. Getting to spend a Saturday or Sunday on the golf course with my kids is a lot of fun and we all get in some good exercise without even realizing it.
