Introduce a youngster to golf
School’s out, and one of the best sports you can introduce a child to is golf. There are a plethora of junior golf opportunities out there, and you will want to get the best for your child. Here are a few guidelines for questions to ask the people in charge of the school or camp:
What safety instruction do you give? Number one in my concerns for junior is that he or she doesn’t get injured by flying clubs or balls when in the learning area. One of the most simple instructions that I use is that all kids who are not hitting balls should hold the club by the clubhead, not the grip. Additional advice, like there must also be a buffer area of about six feet behind each hitting station, is good, too. You might want to ask the safety record, but the answer will probably be that there have been no accidents or incidents.
What is the maximum student to teacher ratio? I never felt safe working with more than six students, but I have gone as high as 8 to 1 in the past. When working with larger numbers, safety becomes even more of a concern. The larger the number, the less individual attention your child will get, so try to steer clear of the really inexpensive camps, as they usually mean high ratios and only a few minutes attention for junior in an hour.
