Drive it Home: Finding Local Golf Lessons for Youth Players



If you are looking to get your child started in golf, this article has some tips to help you. Golf is a lifelong sport and a great one for your children to learn at a young age. Golf promotes overall physical fitness, hand-eye coordination, discipline, a love of the outdoors and it encourages quiet time. The very nature of golf encourages friendships because the pace is easy and allows for conversation.

One option is to speak with an employee of a sporting goods store. Many have separate departments dedicated to golf. Although they may not be tour pros themselves, they can point you in the right direction. They will have brochures that give you more specifics and have a variety of options. They may also suggest YouTube channels that focus on beginner golf.

Another option is to find a golf store. The staff here will be more knowledgeable than a general sporting goods store. The staff here will fit your child for the best clubs and may offer one-on-one lessons. Many golf stores also have a simulator which can be helpful for young golfers. Staff here can also direct you to golf professionals who offer group and individual lessons.

One other option is to speak with other golfers. Whether friends or golfers you regularly see on the course, it is a great place to start. They offer tips and guidance to your child. They may know someone who gives lessons. Golfers are a friendly group of people who have a passion for the game and want to see it grow. 

Finally, a simple internet search can help you find people who offer lessons. Be sure to read the reviews and be diligent when searching. No matter where you look for golf lessons for your child, it is important to ask questions. Think of the price you pay as an investment in a lifelong activity.
