Junior Golf: Grandparents Getting Involved

I spoke in my Podcast this morning on Junior Golf and I mentioned how I have been noticing the Grandparents getting more involved in mentoring their grand kids into learning the game…I applaud this and want to do whatever I can to help make this grow.

Screen Door Open Charity Golf, Inc, a non-profit organization my wife and I founded in 1999 to help raise funds for junior golf programs is starting its 2007 planning and is looking into supporters a program that will provide grandparents an opportunity to learn to play golf along with their grandkids.  I’ll keep you posted on this here on the Business Golf site and there will be more details on all of the activities going on in the world of the Screen Door Open® over on the SDO blog site.

Back to what is taking place with the need to get grandparents involved; who else is qualified, has the patience and motivation to produce some great junior golfers.  Grandparents have two legs up over their children and that is that they have the experience of raising a child that their children do not have and grandparents have learned from their mistakes on what not to do with their kids, or at least should know what to do with their grand kids to motivate them into learning a game for a lifetime

I have said it, the PGA and LPGA have been saying it and the USGA have been nurturing the fact that Golf is a game for a lifetime…and how grand this game is to be the ONLY sport where the grandparents can play right along with their grandkids and create lasting memories for both. 

Join me in supporting this growing effort of grandparents who are making a difference in the lives of their family.  Get involved and let’s get the grandparents together on the golf course with their grandkids and watch the next generation of Junior Golfers grow…
