I would like to take a quick second to say Hello! My name is Jason and my 8 year old son, Jace, has been involved in golf for several years. In that time, I have learned a little bit about the junior golfing community in Dallas (Texas), and realized there was not a local junior golf blog! There is not a single place that parents (or kids) can go to learn more about the junior golf world in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. It is very overwhelming, and there are many choices of coaches, clinics, tournaments and clubs. Some of my posts will be about local (DFW) golf, but many of them will be about kids golf in general.
As a parent, where do you even begin? What program is right? What is the next step for my child? Where is the best place to get golf clubs? Who is a good coach for my child's skill level?
As a child, where can I meet other golf interested kids? What are their experiences with various tournaments? What equipment is good/bad? What school do you go to, and does it have a golf program? What is your "home" course?
I am starting this forum and blog to have a single place to answer these type questions and any other junior golfing related questions. I am asking you, junior golf enthusiasts, to help me in that quest.
Over the next several months, I will be adding new blogs. I look to you for suggestions! Please let me know what topics you would like for me to add to this blog. I will do my best to research and find answers to your questions.
