Teaching children to golf
UGOLF PLACES SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON TEACHING GOLF TO CHILDREN, AND MANY YOUNG TALENTS HAVE EMERGED UNDER OUR TUTELAGE. EACH YEAR, 2,500 KIDS ENROL IN OUR GOLF SCHOOLS.
Golf school is part of our “Adventure” range of classes, dedicated to young players ages 4 to 18. From September to June (outside French school holidays), they receive training appropriate to their ages and skill levels.
The classes are taught by certified instructors. The children’s programme is designed to allow them to blossom, with access to all the practice areas and a compact course. The equipment and balls are provided during classtime.
Learning at golf school
Kids can enjoy fun, educational activities, with a sporting programme punctuated by entertainment, as well as dynamic, enriching classes.
Golf school gives them the chance to get their flags, which are markers of what they have learned. There are eight flags in total. The first is earned during the first term of golf school. The next ones are staggered over time, depending on the child’s age, maturity and motivation. It takes about three years of regular play to acquire all the flags.
Lastly, at golf school, the children can participate in a variety of competitions and receive and diploma at the end of the year, during the “Olympics”.
Golf, the perfect sport for youths
Golf is an extremely beneficial sport and pastime for young people. It allows them to develop their motor skills (speed, balance, explosiveness and coordination). It also provides a chance to learn and improve their aim. Lastly, it fosters the development of people skills: adhering to the etiquette and sporting values of golf, socializing with others and adapting behaviours to the game.
