Some people are not into golf. There I said it.
It’s shocking considering how brilliant it is I know, but there are many people who haven’t got a clue about the game and many of them are parents.
Speaking as a parent, whose daughter is a huge swimming fan (a sport of which my level of understanding ends at the avoidance of drowning), I therefore empathise with parents who may have a golf-mad child on their hand but be utterly beleaguered about what to buy them this Christmas.
So as a public service, because we here at Gorilla Golf are just splendid folks, we’re going to give you a list of the golf items you can buy for your child this Christmas.
For the purposes of this, we are assuming your child is around the ages of 7 to 12, though the list is applicable to children in their teens too.
There’s two lists: One a list of golfing items your child really must have (which is surprisingly short), and another a list of items that would be useful to have, but which are not necessary to start playing the game.
