after my hole in one a month and a half ago I was skipping from hole to hole...I just had my daughter qut for her first walk around 18 (par3 course)the other day she's 7 and we had great fun together although i dont think I can remember seeing someone skip from hole to hole before.
Waite until they get just a couple years older then the challenge is on...beat Dad! My Grandson, 14yrs old, gets a good shot mine is fair he says I suck the nerve of the kid Love it and you will too.after my hole in one a month and a half ago I was skipping from hole to hole...
I have two boys ages 7 & 5, they both go with me from time to time and they like to hit the ball around. First green my oldest son set foot on he dropped a 30ft putt, I couldn't believe it. Usually during a round (9 holes when they go) by the 4th hole they are busy looking for worms or chasing geese. And at home I'll work with them a little on grip and swinging the club but after about 10 balls the clubs tend to become shovels and they use them to dig. I'll keep them close to the game and when they become really interested then I'll take them more. Until then I don't want them to be forced into it because we all know what happens then.
It is impossible to answer this question, it's not like school where there may be a correct age to start, just get them playing when they show an interest in it. After all, it will only be a game to them at first. You will probably find it hard for them to keep any technique but just getting them in there and getting their feet wet is all you need to doAt what age do you think that you should start teaching your kids golf? I don't want to pressure them, but would love it if they played.
