Are you ready to play? Keep reading for activities you and your junior golfer can do at home to up your golf games! Before you get started, make sure to warm up to prepare your bodies for physical exercise.
Before you move on to ACTIVITY 2: TIC-TAC-TOE, prepare by reviewing GASP and the basics of the chip shot.
Watch Coach Robin demonstrate how you and your family can play “Tic-Tac-Toe,” and don’t worry, this activity can be played with or without golf clubs. You can play using a soft object, like a pillow or a balled-up pair of socks, as long as you use the same chip shot motion as you would with a club.
A golf course is made up of a series of holes, typically either nine or eighteen. The lengths of the holes, penalty areas, and challenges differ hole-to-hole and course-to-course. Click here to see all of the parts of the course.
