Golf Tuition for Kids

Like it or not, the fact of the matter is, fewer numbers of young people are being attracted to the game of golf than in previous years. It is an arresting decline in numbers and one that golf has to address if the game is to enjoy a burgeoning future.

Of course, there are countries where this trend is bucked.

Any time a Major Championship returns to an older course, you’ll often here people lament about the changes made to the design of the course in order to combat the prodigious distances players can hit the ball nowadays.
