The Dylan Golf Juniors Programme
Welcome to the 'Game of Golf'!
Golfers come in all shapes and sizes. You don’t have to be particularly strong, tall, lean or fast to succeed. Golf champions come in every shape and size imaginable. It’s never too early to start, and unlike most other sports you can enjoy golf your entire life. Unlike many other popular sports like skiing, soccer and handball, the chances of injury, especially serious injury, are almost non- existent.
The golf course is a safe place and facilitates mentoring relationships and good conduct and manners. For that matter you never know who you will meet on a golf course, but it’s one of the easiest places in the world to make friends. Success breeds success and people who play golf, for some reason tend to be more successful than the average. Best of all, golf creates a unique bond so those friendships can be developed all over the world and last a lifetime. I have played all over the world and have made many friends along the way doing so.
It’s hard to think about it now but kids grow up and the people they meet as children can play a huge part in their success later in life. Golf is a sport that helps prepare kids and teens for careers in business and other professional arenas. Even at 14 I was learning about real life business and conduct from all the adults I played with.
Golf closely parallels real life as one experiences the highs and lows of the game. The range of experience, from birdies to bogeys, rewards a young person's ability to keep each shot in perspective, manage one's emotions, maintain a positive outlook and focus on the shot at hand. Golf is a sport that will teach your child things like integrity, discipline and respect. As they learn to conduct themselves on the golf course, these lessons will translate directly into everyday life.
Avid golfers have a lot of opportunities when it comes to university entry. The earlier your child starts, the greater his or her chance is of gaining access to university. You may not believe that but many universities have good golf teams and a good player is always seen as an asset to the university.
In today’s world of video games and smart phones it can be challenging to drag your son or daughter off the couch. Today’s kids need more than ever to get away from the computer games and get out and socialize. Golf is the perfect excuse to spend an entire day enjoying nature and presents the opportunity to develop healthy lifelong exercise habits .Golf is a game that encourages family participation and is an opportunity for quality bonding time that can last a lifetime. Even today, playing with my own parents is still a great opportunity to bond with them.
This should probably be at the top of the list, but one of the best reasons to get your son or daughter involved with golf is that they’ll have an absolutely fantastic time. They’ll have the chance to learn new skills both physical and mental, be rewarded with a great sense of ability, compete as welll as make new friends and discover new opportunities.
There are a million things you can buy your kids or gift your kids in the hope that it helps them learn and grow, only a few make a real impact. Encourage them to play golf!
