To introduce, develop and involve kids of all ages to be able to enjoy the game of golf through interactive game based learning, positive atmosphere and golf related skills development that will last a lifetime of fun with family and friends.
We all have a swing. Some different than others but with the same concept in mind…get the ball to the hole in the least amount of strokes possible. Sounds simple…but can be a very complex task without understanding the basics to getting that little ball to the hole.
The meaning of insanity is “repeating something over and over and expecting a different result.” Yes that is crazy! But with understanding that we all learn in different ways it is important that we understand WHY. No one likes change, but with change comes failure from adjustment until we generate a new sense of confidence and understanding. We are going to make mistakes! Einstein has said “anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” When we understand why the ball goes in a certain direction we need to get to the root of the problem at hand. By using a proactive approach, we do not use a “band aid” to repair the issue but break it down to where the student can make an adjustment with the simpleist of methods. That is a rational and healthy approach to any situation.
The game of golf is not a game that we just pick up a club and swing, but a game where we pick up that exact club and learn HOW to swing. Once we learn HOW and WHY, we answer many questions and build confidence. Confidence build character and most of all FUN!
At the end of the day it is a game…enjoy it for a lifetime!
