Peter Walsh: Benefits of Junior Golf

So it is coincidental that this weeks contribution is on my daughters 17th birthday, and I will talk about Junior Golf and why you should at least expose our kids to the joys of golf.

There are numerous reason why we should, but here are the main ones, in my opinion.

1. Spending quality time with family and friends

2. Spending time outdoors away from most of their electronics

3. etiquette and values that children will need as they grow

4. learning from mistakes, and overcoming obstacles

With my daughter, I have never forced her to play, but she does love spending time with dear old dad.

Happy Birthday Victoria!
