THE BEST PROGRAM FOR COACHES & PLAYERS Are you looking to grow your program in a fun, effective, efficient way? There is no better tool for coaches, students, and parents than the use of the U.S. Kids Golf Player Pathway. Our award-winning coaches from the U.S. Kids Golf Academy at Longleaf explain why.
WHY COACHES SHOULD USE THE PLAYER PATHWAY
A PROMISE TO OUR COACHES One of the great challenges (among many!) in 2020 for the golf industry was maintaining inventory to meet the surge in demand for golf equipment. U.S. Kids Golf made an early commitment this past year to serve our coaches first, and to do all we could to make sure no coach who needed U.S. Kids Golf equipment would have to wait. Our firm belief that the coach is the most valuable asset in golf shapes our business and culture and we will continue to prioritize serving you.
BENEFITS OF BEING A U.S. KIDS GOLF CERTIFIED COACH
A BETTER FIT IS ALWAYS BETTER FOR THEIR GAME We all know that clubs fit for kids helps them develop better in the game. But do you apply that same rationale to balls, gloves, and other products? Everything U.S. Kids Golf designs is specifically suited for the young player, looks great and performs to the highest standards. If you want the best for your students, please take a look at what some of our products could do for them. LEARN MORE: U.S. KIDS GOLF PRODUCTS

EVEN MORE INTEREST IN KIDS GOLF COMING? The golf world was abuzz with the recent performance of Charlie Woods and his father Tiger at the PNC Championship in Orlando, FL. The Woods family has been great participants in U.S. Kids Golf events in South Florida. Even more exciting was the obvious enjoyment that the two were having playing golf together. Many experts feel this could spur increased interest in getting kids and families out on the course.
