Sharing a Golf Game with Your Kids

Father directs and teaches the girl how to play golf.

Golf is a game of sophistication and, from a child’s point of view, it’s something that adults do to pass time. While the green is typically a place to discuss business dealings or to catch up with friends, it can also be a great spot for parents to connect with their kids.

While your kiddo may not see golf the same way you do, there’s plenty about the game that any kid is sure to love. With a few minor adjustments, you can turn a game of patience and dedication into one that the whole family enjoys.

Keep reading for tips and tricks to share the game of golf with your kids, including how a home golf simulator can help.


Let Loose

Children learn best when playing by their own rules. While it may be unorthodox, why not let loose and let your kid run a round on the green? While you may be itching to teach all about how to swing properly and keep score, leave the technicalities at the door—at least for now.

Let your child explore and swing the club freely. Remember, before a child is ever interested in something, it has to be fun and interesting for them! Rules and techniques can come later.

Bend the Scoring Rules

Everyone knows that the game of golf is all about keeping your score as low as possible, but we also know that any adult will outplay a kid in a round any day. The fact is that kids like to win and, when it comes to golf, you’ll have to bend the rules a little to keep it fun with a little bit of competition.

When golfing with your kid:

  • Give them a few free shots.
  • Praise them each time they connect with the ball.
  • Play only a few holes instead of the entire course.

With a few simple tweaks, you can make the most out of a round of golf for you and your youngsters.
