With the summertime approaching soon, what better way to get your child into a lifelong sport such as golf? Golf is one of the few sports that you can play all of your life, with many options available for instruction. From taking lessons at your local municipal course, to attending an overnight golf camp, getting your son or daughter involved with a golf camp can lay the foundation for many years of enjoyment on the course.
The easiest way to enter your child into the world of golf is to sign the up for a golf camp at your local public course. With most courses having several teaching professionals, you’ll have options of smaller groups or a larger group setting. Private sessions or small groups will cost you more and give your child the specialized attention they may be looking for.
For beginner players looking to grasp basic fundamentals, a larger group setting will teach proper gripping of the club and swing motion. Larger groups tend to be best for younger players who are getting their first taste of the game. Camps and clinics run by local courses are usually 2-3 hours in length, which is long enough to get repetitions, but not too long for the short attention spans that come with teaching young players.
For intermediate or advanced players, private instruction or overnight golf camps will give your child the one on one teaching needed to improve one’s golf game. Though these golf camps and clinics can be a bit pricey, the technology used to analyze golf swings and setups can give a player the unique ability to dissect their performance. The trained golf professionals teaching your son or daughter will be able to use this technology to pinpoint areas that the naked eye could miss.
Overnight golf camps will be much more intense in their instruction, since the campers will be practicing and playing from sunrise to sundown. The amount of time and energy expended at an overnight golf camp, will give the golf campers the numerous repetitions needed to correct flaws and build on the foundation of fundamentals.
Golf is truly one of the few worldwide sports that participants can play as long as they are active. Why not sign up your child for a golf camp, and introduce them to a fun sport? They’ll even get a nice tan because of it!
