US Kids Golf Academy
Easy-to-understand books with simple and effective methods to teach, learn and advance.
A progressive learning program that frequently provides attainable goals with awards while furthering development and skills.
Children learn best when they are challenged and have fun at the same time.
The US Kids Golf Academy covers all aspects of golf, which gets more involved as the child moves up through the levels. The areas covered include putting, around the green, full swing, knowledge and scoring. A keepsake booklet allows the child to re-read the technical forms and go through everything at home between sessions with you.
The full programme consists of ten levels, with three entry levels. The first five levels target golf skill development; in other words, if a child passes level five, then there is a good chance they will become a golfer for life. The top five levels focus on play as well as skill development. Accomplish level ten, and the child can play to a high standard.
Most children enjoy the company and helping others. Running group golf sessions, we allow them to be children and help to keep them engaged as they all want to learn together. They will also support and encourage each other to overcome challenges which will help them build friendships outside of school and ultimately stay in the game.
