S4K Eagles Golf for 5-7 years olds continues to provide a fun and energetic introduction to golf. The ultimate end goal of this Player Pathway is to equip children with the skill set required to get onto a golf course and play a few holes.
Our Eagles enjoy a mix of fun games that build fine and gross motor skills, co-ordination, balance and cognitive skills and finish each session with a mini golf set up. This introduces our golfers to club and shot selection and the basics of course management, which is a vital part of any golfer’s game.
Course etiquette and sportsmanship features heavily in our coaching especially during the mini golf course set up, we want players to be confident in how to behave on course and respectful of their playing partners and teammates. This is not only a great skill to learn for golf but also a life lesson that will serve them into adulthood.
Games will improve ball striking and start to focus on aiming, distance control, landing zones and shot selection with use of brightly coloured and fun targets, lots of excitement, cheering and big scores to make each and every player feel like a future British Open Champion.
As players progress and grow in confidence we will look at club grip and swing technique where we think it will improve overall ball striking and end results, whilst still focusing on fun and positive reinforcement.
At the end of this Player Pathway we aim to have your child ready to get out on the Golf Course and play a few holes with you on a sunny afternoon.
