“Life and social skills are a big part of learning to play golf. It’s extremely beneficial for children at a young age to develop these types of attributes and characteristics, as it will benefit them on the long run and during day-to-day activities,” says Craddock.
Learning to play golf is a great way for children to socialise, acquire discipline and also enjoy a great outdoor activity in Dubai.
For older kids, the Dubai Golf Junior Programme is designed for youngsters aged seven to 17 years old.
“Our programmes focus more on fundamental movement skills and athlete progression rather than sports-specific skills. This also provides children with the opportunity to develop their academic skills,” explains Craddock.
At BHSG Dubai, the team teaches according to biological rather than chronological ages, late bloomers and early developers are treated fairly and equally. Their exceptional and coloured hat-grading system are similar to that of marital arts belts, allowing all to show where the child is with regards to detailed physical and golf knowledge skills. All they require is to get started and be in comfortable shoes, shorts and a collared shirt. Golf equipment is provided, although they encourage the students to get their own clubs as they progress further in the game.
