In golf, birdie refers to one stroke under par, whereas eagle refers to the flying carnivores players trained to swipe their opponents’ clubs. Swing through with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get four kids' Saturday golf-camp sessions at Fore Kids Golf Academy at Brookside Golf Club in Pasadena (a $275 value). Classes meet in two-hour sessions—9 a.m. to 11 a.m., 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., or 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.—on four Saturdays, which do not have to be attended consecutively.
From the emerald valley of Brookside Golf Course's expansive practice facility, Fore Kids' Golf Academy’s staff of golf gurus teaches youngsters the very basics of on-course conquests in a fun and positive environment. In each Saturday session, prospective golfers learn and practice the basic principles of golf's pendulous swing, preparing them for life as a pro golfer, leisurely swinger, or sentient grandfather clock. Video playback helps club-toting tykes better understand their swings, and a high volume of repetitions nourishes the development of essential muscle memory. Throughout the sessions, pupils also learn the basics of chipping, putting, and etiquette guidelines, such as how to mark the ball and how to boost sports cars with a divot-repair tool. Kids without a serviceable set of clubs or modified tree branches can use clubs from Fore Kids' armory of orb-mashing equipment, and each future ace receives a T-shirt and participation trophy.

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.
