Is it OK to bring kids to golf course? While it’s true that kids can be introduced to the game at any age (in fact, the younger you start, the better), children who are grade-school age and below don’t always have the patience or attention span to play multiple holes.
What age can child Start golf? Kids can be exposed to the game of golf as early as 2 years old. Research shows those starting early are more likely to play golf as adults. Formal instruction is generally better from school age (5-6) when longer attention spans enable kids to better learn the rules and risks associated with golf.
Can a 7 year old play golf? If they are under eight years old, it’s okay if their grip is funky, they don’t stand perfectly or they lose their balance. Those things will come with time. When I teach my peewee golf classes (3-6 years old), I let them hold the club cross-handed if they want, have space between their hands, and more!
Can an 8 year old play golf? Larkin suggests, “6 to 8-year olds should play from 50-150 yards out on any given hole. Nine-11 year olds maybe 180-250 yards, and 12-13 year olds play from forward tees.” There’s no need for kids to go out and play full length courses.
