The rolling fairways of golf courses help conserve open spaces, which can be used by future generations for nature walks or giant slip-n-slide tournaments. Let children discover the peace of the outdoors with today's Groupon: for $95, you get a five-day kids' golf camp (a $195 value) at Fore Kids Golf Academy, with classes at Brookside Golf Course in Pasadena. Weekly classes start Monday June 6 and continue through September 12.
Fore Kids Golf Academy's weekly summer sessions instruct children ages 5–16 in the rules and skills necessary to master 18 holes. With 15 total hours of lessons, the skilled golf gurus in the summer camp teach 30–35 pintsize putters fairway fundamentals, including how to swing, chip, and politely hand out business cards on the green. Burgeoning ball tacticians showcase newly acquired skills in daily competitions, angling for the greatest accuracy, best putting, or the longest drive. Mini PGA pros end the week arrayed in an academy golf hat, shirt, and participation trophy, inaugurating a lifetime of tee parties.
Students should wear comfortable shoes and clothing and bring their own clubs or use Fore Kids Golf Academy's arsenal. A 15-minute intermission divides up each lesson, allowing little legs the chance to rest while kids barter pockets full of applesauce for snacks brought from home or purchased at the course's coffee shop.
Fore Kids Golf Academy
From Eaton Canyon Golf Course's practice facility, Fore Kids Golf teaches students the very basics of on-course conquests in a fun and positive environment. The facility strives to imbue clients with a sound understanding of golf’s pendulous swing while also teaching them how to set and meet goals of any nature, such as growing up to be a contributing member of society or scientifically proving that all golf balls are descendants of the moon. Most clinics involve both range practice and on-course play, as well as video swing analysis, which provides students with a visual aid to help them understand swing advice and identify their sand wedge’s bad side.
