Get Kids into Golf with Online Golf

DSC_0320

Earlier this week me and Max went along to an event hosted by Online Golf at The Hilton hotel in Leeds. The aim of the event was to introduce kids to golf.

Max had never tried golf before, apart from a failed attempt at crazy golf a couple of years ago! He definitely isn’t a sporty boy and to be honest doesn’t really show much interest in sports at all but he was really excited about giving golf a go.

At the event there were three activities set up, we were split up into groups and we went round and had a go at all of the activities.

We had lots of fun at the event, Max definitely needs a bit more practice but he couldn’t wait to get home and tell daddy and Evie all about it. He has already been telling us that he can’t wait to play golf again!

Here are Online Golf’s top reasons why kids should get into golf…

  1. Anyone can play golf! For golf you don’t have to be tall, strong or fast or lean. Successful golfers come in all shapes, sizes and ages.
  1. It’s low-risk! Chances of injuries in golf are very small to non-existent compared to other popular sports like football or rugby. Being no-contact, golf is a very safe, respectful sport.
  1. It’s healthy! Golf is an outdoors sport giving kids the opportunity to exercise al fresco whilst enjoying nature.
  1. It creates bonds with friends & family! Whether your kid plays golf with family members, friends or takes lessons with a pro, mentoring and playing together will create unique and close bonds that will last a lifetime.
  1. Your kid will learn important life lessons! Playing golf, kids will experience highs and lows, from the first hole-in-one or birdie to a misplaced shot in a bunker. Golf will teach your kid that though we can’t always win, we always have another shot in life and skill comes with practice.

    My husband loves golf so he got our 6yr/o daughter a golf club and took her up the golf range & she loved it. She also had a go at a local sports event put on by our local council and was really good at it. She needs a left handed club which took a bit of online searching but she has her own now so we can go whenever. 🙂 #sharingthebloglove

    I think golf is a great sport for children. I cant wait to try it out with O but i think he’s a bit young for anything we have round here. But this looks great! #picknmix

    Looks great, our 6 year old loves his toy set and can really hit it. We will have to see if there is anything in our area, Mr MC&W would love the boys to get into golf #picknmix

    What a lovely way to get a little taster! And how great that even though he’s not massively into sport, he really enjoyed it. There’s a sport out there for everyone I think, we just need to find it. I love his t-shirt too – my Max has it! Thanks so much for joining us again at #SharingtheBlogLove

    My oldest is 4 and goes to golf lessons once a week and adores it! At the end they all get a ride around on the golf buggy and everyone waves at them. I think it’s a lovely sport for little ones to get into.

    You know ive never really thought about gold as an activity but you make lots of really good points and actual it would be a great way to get kids engaged and doing something active! Brilliant idea that hopefully takes off eh. Thanks for linking up at #fortheloveofblog xx

    What a great way to get kids to try new sports. We hadn’t tried golf until this summer my parents brought a little mini golf set and the girls love playing with it at their house. Holly even got a hole in one! I think its important for kids to get into sport. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove Laura x

    This looks like a great event. The boys have both had a go at golf a few times as James is a golf coach it’s in our lives quite a bit. Thanks for linking to #picknmix
