Why is golf a great sport for young people to learn? 

II believe that golf is a great activities for kids to learn life lessons such as patience, emotional control, camaraderie, and confidence. While golf can be frustrating at times, there is nothing like hitting a great shot! I hope that all juniors are able to experience this success and develop a lifelong passion for the game.
