Family Tee Time Golf With Kids
As golf has become more and more popular with younger generations, golf resorts and facilities have begun to cater to grandparents and parents interested in playing golf with kids. By incoporating youth golf programs, one-on-one instruction and kid-friendly discounts, many golf resorts are bringing families closer together for the love of the sport. Whether your kids have been golfing alongside you for years or are just getting started, U.S. KIds Golf Foundation has a great website featuring information, tips and guides to youth golfing. Also, be sure to check out FTF's guide to year-round youth golf camps.
Here is a round up of the best golf camps for the whole family available both year round and seasonally.
Family Resort Golf Camps Available Year Round
Amelia Island Plantation
6800 First Coast Hwy
Amelia Island, Florida 32034
Each summer, Amelia Island Plantation brings families together at the Oak Marsh front nine with late afternoon and evening Tee times available every 15 minutes. Children 15 and under playing with their parents play free.
Beaches Boscobel Resort & Golf Club
N. Coast Hwy
Box 2, St. Ann's Bay
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
The all-inclusive family resort, Beaches Boscobel, brings families together with free greens fees and unlimited transportation to the Sandals Golf and Country Club. Free clinics introduce kids to the game and 18-hole courses keep golfing parents on top of their game.
Mauna Lani Resort
68-1400 Mauna Lani Drive
Kohala Coast, Hawaii 96743
The only course of its kind in Hawaii, Mauna Lani's Keiki course provides a golfing experience designed for junior golfers 18 years old and younger. Players must have some golfing experience and children 14 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult. Junior golfers looking for a little independence and solo play can request a golf pro or staff evaluation. Afterwards, young players are certified on general safety and etiquette before exploring the course. Beginners can also get in on the action with customized lessons at the resort's Golf Academy. Golfing families are also permitted, and encouraged, to play together on the Keiki course.
Play Golf at Resort Camps on Weekends
There are also a handful of seasonal golfing camps dedicated to families that foster bonding, family unity, and of course the love of golf. All of the following resorts offer family programs in late spring, summer and early fall (check their websites as dates change annually) to kids ages 6 to 12, and their parents, for three-day camps.
Each program offers instruction, games, and course time with stations designed for putting, chipping, pitching, bunkers, and full swing. Kids have the opportunity to play with other golfers their own age while parents caddie, and then parents can get in on the game, too. It's an ideal experience for kids who are a little shy and don't want Mom and Dad to stray too far, but still want to play the game with other kids.
Rates for the following seasonal programs also include golf carts, instruction, a cookout, and extra perks like an ice cream social, box lunch on Sunday, printed program materials, camp hat for kids, and prizes.
