We signed him up for a 4 day introductory course, and he loved it. We found some used clubs, because with kids you just never know how long the obsession will last... and if we had spent $150, he'd probably be done by now! :)
Since that class, he's practiced almost every day, and even went to the driving range with his grandpa twice. He's now in a more advanced golf camp - and he's loving it! Even though my husband and I know nothing about golf and have never played, it is good to see our son enjoying something so much.
I guess it's even worth it to sit in the hot sun for an hour and a half at a picnic table... I even bought a big floppy straw hat to wear for shade -- I'm sure I look ridiculous!
Unfortunately, there is rain in the forecast for Friday. Friday is the day they are supposed to play the 4 hole academy course. I hope the forecast is wrong, because he is so excited...
Here's my little golfer at the first camp..
