PostSubject: Need Suggestion for Kid's Lessons   Sat Nov 21, 2009 11:51 am

Many of you are not shy to speak your mind or short on answers so if you have any suggestions/recommendations per below please reply. Any and all replies sincerely appreciated in advance.

My friend is an avid golfer but still has a tad high HDCP but LOVES the game. She wants her 2 children (5 & 6) to pick up the game but first wants to see if they enjoy learning with a teaching pro before buying 10 lessons only to learn the kids are not keen after the first or second session.

Any ideas, recommended coach for children on a lesson by lesson basis?

Thanks in advance, Cheers, KT

kindergolf offers free trial lesson, or at least, with a discount. so, i think this is best for trying. juz call up the nearest branch.

most places and pros i approached are only willing to take in kids from 7 years old onwards.

but i have tried the first tee though.

Hi,

Perhaps your fren can bring her kids to Uncle Mervyn at Sembawang Country Club driving range on weekends. The young children absolutely adore him and even wears the same red t-shirt as him... He trains junior pros and also coaches kids on a casual basis. 4 lessons at $70. Notwithstanding, your fren can have a word with Mervyn, asking if he can give a very simple "induction" to the kids. That's how i got my young cousins keen on golf Smile I'm sure Mervyn will be happy to oblige. If your fren is "pai say" to ask, i can ask for you. Alternatively, I'm bringing my cousins for their first lessons next weekend. Your fren can come and take a look with her children.

I have forgotten his hp no. I can find out and pm you.

Hope the info helps. Rgds.

KopioO and z_b, THANK you so very much for the suggestions. I will pass these notes along to my fren. Told her to become a member here so I don't have to be intermediary so maybe we have another fresh face soon.

z_b: if you have hp of Uncle M pls pass to me pm and I will forward. Will not share with anyone else.

Thanks again and she will be thrilled I am sure with any one of these suggestions.

Cheers, KT

Hi,

The youngest cousin is Primary 2.

BTW, i bumped into Mervyn a while ago, asking him if there's any age limit. By and large, he teaches kids as young as 5-6. He said he would need to see and evaluate the child first before recommending if he/she is suitable to start picking up.

With due respect for KopiO's posting, I personally do not recommend Kindergolf. My kid has been learning from them for over a year and i have recently withdrawn her from the program.
Have decided to let her take a break for now.

Thank you all for your input. I have spoken with fren and told her to SIGN UP on GR and it's all here for her to see. If she doesn't, no worries, I'll pass to her. Though I did mention the Charity Tourney and that got her attention as she is a very warm hearted and caring young lady and wants to do her part for the community.

Cheers, KT
