Engage your kids in golf
You’ve heard the line before – golf is a game for life. Yes, it’s a popular phrase tossed around by golfers, but it’s also true. It’s a game that you can play from 2-years old to 102-years old. The trick is getting your kid to play golf and encouraging them to continue on through the years. As a parent that plays golf, you understand that the golf swing is much more complex than it appears. Understanding the rules of the game can take a lifetime to learn and learning how to make consistent contact can be equal parts frustrating and elating.
