Benefits of Getting Your Kids into Golf with Grow Golf Now

As many parents are discovering, golf is a great game for kids to learn - especially at a young age. There are numerous benefits to learning and playing the game which involves personal growth on multiple levels. Below are just a few of the many benefits that we feel golf can offer not just children, but the entire family as well. 

Golf can be fun for the entire family

At Grow Golf Now, we believe that a golf experience is meant to include your ENTIRE family regardless of whether you all play golf or not. Golf means more time together as a family. And these days most families could use an extra 1-2 hours of family time together each week. Learn more.

Golf can create special memories

One of the benefits of spending more time together as a family and outdoors is the making of special memories. Kids grow up fast. And you want to maximize every moment. Learning something new together that is fun, well, does it get any better than that? And you don't have to travel far, maybe just around the corner. Learn more.

Golf can be great exercise

When played properly, golf gets kids and families MOVING. The game of golf is meant to be played walking. Golfers walking nine holes easily walk up over 2.5-3 miles and burn in excess of 400-600 calories. Just think about the impact that alone could have on your family even if it just once a week. Learn more.

Golf can be enjoyed for an entire lifetime

Golf is timeless. There just aren't many activities that can be fun when you're 8 years old and just as much fun when you're 80 years old. Golf simply outlives almost all other sports. Think about it, when is the last time you saw a group of seniors running around on a  soccer field or chasing each other up and down the basketball court? Learn more.

Golf can mean more time outdoors

Sadly, many kids don't spend as much time outdoors as they used too. With the rise in popularity of video games and mobile devices, the concept of playtime has changed for many. Golf presents a great opportunity to get children away from screens and experiencing nature. Learn more.

Golf can build lasting friendships

Good friendships are not always easy to come by. But some of the best friendships in one's lifetime can be built on the golf course. Think about it. Your kids are outside, having fun, and sharing experiences with other kids their own age... and as a result, your family gets to know their family better as well. Learn more.

Golf can lead to improved wellness

Getting more exercise is great, but it's only half of the battle. When it comes to wellness nutrition is king. And golf can inspire kids to improve their nutrition both on and off the course. How? When they learn that proper nutrition is key to playing better golf and improving their overall performance... look out! Learn more.

Golf helps kids develop mental toughness, confidence, and resilience in addition to physical skills. This game can be tough but that is a good thing. Kids that play golf learn at an early age how to overcome adversity and believe more in themselves. These skills will serve them well both on and off the course throughout their entire life. Learn more.
