The 1st Annual Golf For Teens golf tournament will take place on Saturday, August 9th, at the Santiam Golf and Country Club. The venue will remain open late and the tournament play will last for a full day. The tournament can be enjoyed by the whole family and many golfers of all ages will find this to be an enjoyable and successful experience. There are several courses on the course that can be enjoyed by players of all ages. Here is some information on how to play golf for teens.
The event is designed for teens who are still in high school. The first two holes will be played with nine holes being played in a nine-hole format. The par three course will be prepared by the teens during the week before the tournament. They will work out all the problems that they might face on the course during the week and have them ready for the tournament. After practice, they will head over to the tournament area and begin to play. There will be a brief drill before each hole in which players will be taught the correct way to hit the golf ball while moving around the golf course.
If you are not familiar with the golf course and would like some instruction about the proper way to swing and hit the ball, you may want to go through the “Volleyball on the Slopes” demonstration. This demonstration will help the players learn how to hit the ball properly and maintain their momentum throughout the swing. During the “Volleyball on the Slopes” demonstration, there will be golf clubs available for the players to use. These golf clubs can be brought on the course but parents are encouraged to remain behind to monitor the play. If the junior players begin to feel too comfortable taking off, it will be difficult for them to maintain their momentum and make the swing they need to win the tournament. This drill is one that should be practiced in between tournaments.
As a parent, you may think of your teenager as the same age as you when it comes to playing golf, but they are not. Teens are very different from adults in a number of different ways. Your teen is still developing physically and emotionally so lessons should not be centered around physical aspects of the golf game. Make sure you discuss with your teenager the importance of golf clubs and the type of equipment they will need to play.
The first step with golf for teens is finding the right golf clubs for your child. The junior golf clubs that are right for your child’s height and weight should be purchased. Ask at your local golf store for recommendations regarding junior golf clubs. You can also find golf clubs specific for girls or boys on the web. With the current interest in golf among many teenagers you can find golf clubs created specifically for young people.
Another thing to consider when selecting golf clubs for your teenager is the type of golf courses in which your child is learning to play. If your child is learning from a public golf course, he or she may not be able to choose his or her own clubs. If you have an open range golf club area, it may be possible for you to choose golf clubs for your child to use. With an open-range golf course your teenager can choose whatever clubs he or she likes without having to ask permission from a particular instructor.
While choosing golf clubs for your teen, you may want to consider the type of grip he or she is used to. Many teenagers like the standard “tourist” golf grips. These types of grips are usually more comfortable for beginners and allow for a lot of movement. If your child is used to a more professional grip, then a “tennis” grip may be a better fit. This type of grip allows more of your teen’s hand to move, which increases the chances of a good shot.
It is important that you are involved in your child’s golfing decision. Let your teen feel that you are excited about his or her choice to play golf. Explain the game and the benefits to his or her participation. Let your teen to help you select golf clubs, but ultimately make the decision as a team.
