My 6 year old played his first 9 holes of golf this past weekend

10 posts in this topic

[video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bgv2lOugP9w[/video] He's been riding along with me over the last 2 years while I played golf, which generally ends with him putting around on the practice green after I finish a round. He and his brother (4) like to go into the back yard and hit plastic golf balls at a large tree endlessly. So, I thought now's the time that my oldest is ready to actually play on the course. We went to Independence Golf Club here in Richmond, which has a phenomenal youth program and a 9 hole short course (par 3). The youth tees are perfect for his age, in that every hole is between 30-60 yards with no carries. Effectively, they can bump and run the ball up to the green. I'm happy to say he had a great time on the course. Their staff and everyone on the course were very encouraging for him. And I'll say, their championship course is closed for renovations this summer, so the guys who'd normally be out there were on the short course working on their short game. Everyone was very kind and it went a long ways. He was grinning ear to ear the entire time. Safe to say I think he's already in love with this game.

That is great! My daughter, also 6 hits about two buckets of balls with me every week. I have been looking for a short three to take her to and after seeing this I will just have to get it done.

We didn't keep a score. I don't think it would have been too astronomical. His biggest struggle was on the green, speed being the main issue. But as for getting up and on the green, he didn't have much of an issue there.

He's been playing t-ball/coach-pitch for the last three years, so that definitely shows in his swing.

Awesome....His form looks pretty decent as well, especially for being so young. Sounds like it was a fun day.
