Tee Time

Kid's Fun | Written By, NOW! BALI |

I was sitting enjoying a cup of coffee at Sector Bar at Bali Beach complex in Sanur when I saw three little boys walking past, each holding a golf club. One of them, the eldest, stopped at the practice green and started putting. The other two were over on the other side of the course with their coach. Damien, Nathan and Axel are siblings who were introduced to golf from a very early age. Axel, the youngest at about 4 years old, has already learned to do long iron shots. The boys seemed to be enjoying their time on the golf course and although the coach trained them with discipline, he also appeared to inject a lot of fun into the lesson.

I was sitting enjoying a cup of coffee at Sector Bar at Bali Beach complex in Sanur when I saw three little boys walking past, each holding a golf club.

The boys seemed to be enjoying their time on the golf course and although the coach trained them with discipline, he also appeared to inject a lot of fun into the lesson. 

Bali Beach Golf Course offers kid’s golf lessons which are available daily, welcoming both reservations and walk in guests. They have 3 types of lesson, a lesson at the driving range, a combination of 3 times at the driving range and 2 times focused on their short game, and the super active combination of 4 times at the driving range and 3 times short game.  Each driving range session includes 100 balls and each short game lesson lasts 1.5 hours.

While I was sitting I also saw two teens come for their very first lesson. The coach began the lesson with a little stretching exercise. Then they continued to work on position and posture, before they learned how to swing the club.

Apparently, golfing parents often send their kids for a lesson while they’re enjoying a round of golf themselves. That afternoon there were several children and teens practicing at the driving range and the practice green while Nathan, Damien and Axel were practicing their long shots on the course.!
