There’s never been a better time than now to be a kid getting into golf. Equipment is better, instruction is better, programs are better, course access is better in many areas.
Plus, how many other sports and games can take you around the world? In how many sports and games can you meet the most influential people in the world? In how many sports and games can you play on the SAME field where championships have been played, heroes crowned, and history made?
Golf can do all that — and more.
If you want a safe, aesthetically beautiful, healthy and socially receptive environment, you would be hard-pressed to find a better venue than a golf course. The people you meet at a golf course are generally some of the nicest people anywhere.
And here’s the kicker: Golf can be one, two or three holes of golf. It doesn’t always have to be 18 holes. If you are delayed getting out to the golf courses because you always have “18 holes” on your mind (because some adult told you that’s the way it’s supposed to be), there are alternative meanings to “playing golf.” Why not 9 holes? If time is an issue, this helps manage that challenge. If you feel uncomfortable going to the course at 9:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning, help manage that challenge by playing later in the day when the course is less crowded.
