It is so much fun to play mini golf whilst on holiday with the whole family.  But have you thought about taking your children to practice at a Golf Club? It is great fun and they will love it! Playing golf is very popular with adults and children alike. It takes the kids away from their console and computers and introduces them to a sport suitable to all shape, size and ability.

Children can start playing from a young age, in a protective environment with minimal risk of injury and it is a fantastic social setting where they can build long lasting friendships.

Introducing your children to Golf

What’s the best way to encourage your child to play golf? Make it fun! According to Junior Golf, if the adults are having fun the children will follow. When they hit a good shot say “good shot” When they miss say “great swing” give them an understanding of the game, by playing games on their console or watching matches on TV. Once they have had a grasp on how the game is played they will enjoy it a lot more.
