The "Dog Blog"

Play and Learn is the answer to a question many parents and coaches ask: “Where do I start?” U.S. Kids Golf offers all the resources a parent needs to introduce the game to the beginning golfer and provides curriculum and tools a teaching professional needs to engage students and parents.

The U.S. Kids Golf Learning Program is a proven method to introduce golf to young players. The program becomes more difficult as players advance through each of the three levels, and the Level 1, 2 and 3 booklets provide the framework for both coaches and parents.

The booklets provide instruction and examples of forms and skills, and each level has checkpoints in five core areas: Putting, Around the Green, Full Swing, Knowledge and Scoring. As an incentive to advance through all the levels, players earn an achievement pin each time they complete one of the checkpoints. In order to pass each level, players must play nine holes from at least 1,500 yards (the distance of Level 1 Tees on a Family Course) and meet the scoring requirement.
