Golf is usually seen as an individual sport or something you do with your buddies to escape the everyday routine. However, it can easily also be an activity for the whole family. Whether you’re looking to spend some quality time at the range or out on the course, these three Los Angeles golf programs will help you get your golf fix while maximizing family time.
1) Junior Programs
The LA County program offers free golf lessons to juniors, 18 and under. Weeklong after-school and summer programs, as well as one-day clinics are offered. The junior program travels through all Los Angeles County, including 17 golf course properties. Currently, there are over 2,000 junior golf participants annually. Chester Washington Golf Course is home to one of the best junior programs in the Southern California area.
2) Practice and Play
The Players Club is perfect if you’re trying to spend a few hours in the evening at the range or you play twilight golf to create less pressure on beginners still trying to learn how to play. This golf membership lets you pay a flat monthly fee of $39.99 and get free range access, free instruction, and play during twilight for only $10-$15, which also includes a cart and 2 drinks. This special can be found at Diamond Bar Golf Course and Mountain Meadows Golf Course near Pomona.
Are you ready to try a sport that combines the rules of golf with the skills and fun of soccer? This is a great family activity easy to learn and play for people of all ages. The FootGolf course is set as 18 holes on a typical golf course, and you play with a standard-size soccer ball and keep score like golf—the lowest number of kicks into the hole wins! This family-friendly sport is fun for groups of all ages and skill levels. Our favorite place to play is Vista Valencia Golf Course near Santa Clarita, where you can play 9 holes for only $10. You can find more information about this new sport, as well as places to play FootGolf at www.gofootgolf.com.
