Family Golf Program

Lexington County Recreation Commission Family Golf Program

The Family Golf Program will be modeled more after T-ball/Coaches Pitch where the emphasis is placed on having fun learning and discovering how to play the game while at the same time building and developing skills.


The Lexington County Recreation Commission Family Golf Program is a weekly program designed for families with children ages 4-7, but not excluding ages 8-12, who are beginners or brand new to the game.  Ideally this program will be scheduled for 10 weeks with the first 6-8 weeks taking place on-site at Barr Road Sports Complex. The final 2-4 weeks will take place at a local golf course. For this program, clubs will be provided for the registered participants to use during the lessons. 

 In weeks 1-4, children and their families will learn and practice the skills of building a golf swing. This will be led by George Bryan III and will also include elements of golf fitness and impact conditioning (golf-specific exercises designed to make the critical components of the golf swing easier to learn).

The Middle Phase (Weeks 5-8)  will feature a modified version of on-course play. Using available space on an athletic field, children and their families will practice their golf swing skills by playing on a modified golf course, set up by George, with modified flight golf balls. This portion of the program is designed to facilitate a smoother transition of skills from practice to play while also introducing key elements of playing golf before engaging in regulation or real golf. Included in these key elements of play are: safety, playing formats, & etiquette.

The on-course portion of this program will feature  a developmentally friendly format that serves as the medium for learning through play. Children will be assigned to teams based on family, age, and size. Parents, grandparents, or other adult family members will serve as their caddies, guides, coaches and fans.

When the group is ready for actual play, each team will play from modified distances and will utilize multiple team-based playing formats with one adult per child serving as their caddie.
