Golf isn't like a lot of other sports. While youngsters can easily head to the playground to shoot baskets, toss a football, or chase birds, expenses associated with golf equipment, greens fees, and travel prevent many from ever taking up the game.
Better Golf for Kids doesn't think it has to be this way. The organization and its army of nationally recognized instructors remove all of these barriers when they show up at elementary schools, parks, and public courses across the country, ready to acquaint children with the great fitness- and discipline-building game. Teachers bring mats, clubs, balls, and tees—everything a young player would need—to after-school and summer camp programs, and set about teaching good golf swings and breeding a passion for physical activity. In the 20 years since it was founded, thousands of youngsters have enrolled in the year-round program, enriching young lives while expanding the game to new generations.
