One of the unique things about the
game of golf is the opportunity it provides for individual growth to those who
participate. Values such as personal
integrity, discipline and self-control are not just a part of the game, they
are the essence of the game itself and are reinforced with every bad bounce or
tricky lie. For parents of young girls, golf can be an extremely valuable tool
to help develop and nurture these characteristics in their daughters.
Parents should also consider other
long-term benefits of introducing their daughters to the game at a young age,
especially as it relates to business opportunities later on in their
lives. A round of golf is often a major
component in the completion of a business deal, and women who have at least a
basic skill level and understanding of the game will have a tremendous
advantage over their competition.

opportunities for parents that want to get their daughters involved in the game

With all these options available
to you and your family, why not take your daughter outside and PLAY today?

having parents on the course with young golfers only increases the chance that
those lessons are taken to heart," said Wronowski. "Family Golf Month
is a great way to improve the health and fellowship of the whole family, and it
hopefully will encourage the next generation of golfers to take up a game they
will enjoy for a lifetime."
