The U.S. Kids Golf Tour is a great tour for juniors to start competing, ages 5-18.
I have heard from a college coach that he relies on the scores from US Kids Golf due to our consistency with pars and yardage, a great reason for our high school juniors to play US Kids.
To sign up per season, you open an account for approximately $40 per child and register for tournaments. Individual tournaments cost approximately $37 for 9-hole players and $47 for 18-hole players.
A player's age on the date listed below will determine the age group for the duration of the tour season. Players must be at least five years of age by the date listed to participate.
I like to recommend this website to new parents to golf. The Power of the Positive will go a long way towards you and your child's enjoyment of the game of golf.
The Positive Coaching Alliance has tools for athletes, parents & coaches.
Junior golf requires a positive learning approach. A positive mental approach is the foundation for great golf & making a more enjoyable experience for everyone. Parents, this is a great website to visit and to become a positive influence in your child's life. I can't say enough good things about Positive Coaching. It is too easy for our kids to lose self-confidence from a poor round and it carries on to their golf game and beyond. Tournament scores do not define our kids.
Great introduction to your children who may be shyer. I pair the kids to help them shine and build confidence.
The Gulf Coast has its own popular Junior Golf League in the Spring and the Fall, another great opportunity to introduce kids to golf. Teams from various golf courses compete for the traveling trophy. Contact Diamondhead 228-255-2918 to inquire or reserve a spot. We pair the kids in twosomes and have a lot of fun with great competition. Come visit Diamondhead and see our practice areas. At the end of the day, you will most likely see deer playing at the back of the driving range. Diamondhead is a special place.
