Where Kids can Learn to Golf Around Grand Rapids

Golf is a great activity for kids. It teaches patience, focus, respect and problem solving–all skills that will benefit them long after they’ve walked off the course. And it’s an activity that you can enjoy together, even after they’re grown.

If your child is into golf they live in the right place! We’ve found two dozen places that offer programs for the youngest Arnold Palmers. Dust off their clubs and give one of these guys a call.
