Little golfing machine

Posted: September 26, 2012 in Erin, Family, golf

Erin is taught the fundamentals of golf at school. Called “Sticks & Stones golf”, the kiddies are taught the swing basics to encourage the love of the game.
I saw how much she looks forward to playing on Fridays, and have seen her swing in the garden, so I decided to get her a few clubs and allow her to embrace the support sport I have grown to love.

So I took her to a local course on Monday, being a public holiday, got a cart as I didn’t think she would manage to walk and play 9 holes, and let her have fun.

And boy did she…


The course was under maintenance, but that didn’t deter us.


it was her first time on a golf course, hitting real clubs and proper balls,


And along with many misses, she still smashed a few brilliant drives with the hybrid. Longest drive being 58m.


They are taught an interesting method of measuring the line to putt, walking from the ball to the hole, then pointing at the ball as in the above picture.


Great form and distance control


All in all, an awesome daddy/daughter day on the golf course.


Oh, and lets not forget the “Sponge-Bob-Square-pants” golf balls she chose.
