Golf as a sport is undisputed in its popularity today, and there are few better places to give it a go than at La Manga Club. Theres now a whole industry built around the little white ball and the great news is that more and more kids are showing an interest in the sport. No longer perceived as the old manís game, golf really is gaining momentum as an exciting and all round great sport for people of all ages. Kids interest in golf is pretty much a global affair and has given rise to a whole new industry thatís focused onproducing golf clubs for kids as well as ranges of trendy gear in which theyíre tackling the course.
No matter where you live in the UK, thereís likely to be a choice of decent golf courses not too far away and when mum and dad go off to play a round, thereís no reason, in this day and age, why the kids shouldnít join them. The same is true on holiday and with the great choice of golf at La Manga Club, there really is something for everyone.
The likes of the Young Masters Golf Programme, has helped the evolution of the game no end. The Young Masters Golf Programme encourages juniors between the ages of 6 and 14 to get into the sport and embrace its every element. Promoting structured and enjoyable development, the Young Masters Golf Programme aims to give kids the best possible introduction to the sport and is a great place to start if youíre looking for a regular sporting outlet in the UK. So, thatís all fine when youíre at home, but what about when you go on holiday? Wouldnít it be nice, while youíre away, to be able to take their game to a whole new level by exposing them to a different coaching technique, a different angle or even just the experience of golfing with the Spanish sun on their backs?
La Manga Club is the perfect spot to either introduce your kids to golf or to help raise the bar when it comes to their game. The Lee Westwood Junior Academy runs exclusively during the summer school holidays and offers kids from 7 to 16 the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the best in the game. The very reasonably priced, five day programme at La Manga is structured to embrace every element of the game; placing nutrition and motivation as well as rules and etiquette as high on the agenda as technique. Run by highly professional, hand-selected coaches it really is a rounded experience for kids interested in the sport and will open up their minds well beyond their performance on the course.
The other great thing about golf for juniors at La Manga Club is that you can let them give it a go without investing much more than the Academy fees. The Lee Westwood Junior Academy at La Manga Club is so keen to encourage people to give golf a try that they supply clubs if necessary. This means that, if your kids decide itís not the sport for them, you donít have an expensive set of clubs sitting in your hall as a reminder every day of the week! (sound familiar?).
