Introducing Alina to Our Beautiful Game



My daughter Alina is almost 2 and a half, she has a couple of clubs, and she tries to mimic my swing. She kind of holds the club like a long putter (The way she holds it, actually is legal)

I didn't start playing golf until I was 10. Alina has a huge head start on me as she started actually attempting to hit the ball at 15 months. The good thing is she actually is enthusiastic about playing golf with me... but I only take her to hit balls, if she asks me to... Wouldn't want her to do something she didn't want to do, I'm waiting a little bit until she has a little more coordination to try to teach her basic fundamentals. But she's into it, at that is a great thing...0206151733.jpg

Awesome. My kids don't have any interest at all. 


I think they've seen you swing. ;-)

My experience is sword fights with the plastic clubs early on.  Then putt putt.  Eventually on a par 3 course with a lunch packed for a mid-round picnic.  We would sit under a tree and let everyone else play through. We always played a 2-person scramble.  The biggest draw is the cart.  As soon as they were able to clutch the wheel, I let them drive while I worked the peddles.  Once their legs were long enough, they drove with me hovering.  Never came close to any trouble or accidents but the venues were always safe places.

both of my kids boy 3 1/2 and girl 2 seem to be showing interest.  I didn't really play until about a year and a half ago.  I hopefully look forward to playing with them in the future if its something they stay interested in.
