True Mini Golf
The object of golf is very simple, get the ball in the hole in as fewest strokes as possible. When you are a junior golfer you are not ready to play regulation yardages so you have to “scale or shorten” the holes played.
Step 1: New juniors should start with playing 9 holes on the practice putting green where they are required to putt out their ball from distances ranging from 4 to 40 feet. You should keep score so they can see how they did. After using the putting practice games and working on controlling their golf ball the course should be played again to note improvement. All holes are Par 2.
Step 2: Juniors should now play 9 holes from off the practice green from 10-15 yards working on chipping the ball onto the green and then holing out the putt. You should keep score so they can see how they did. After using the chipping practice games the course should be played again to note improvement. All holes are Par 3
Step 3: Juniors should now advance further from the practice green from yardages ranging from 25-40 yards working with pitching or possible full swing strokes (depending upon age/skill) and advancing their ball into the hole. You should keep score so they can see how they did. After using the pitching/full swing practice games the course should be played again to note improvement. All holes are Par 3
Step 4: Juniors should now move to the driving range and start working on their full swing skills with all clubs in the bag including the driver. This practice will be done in conjunction with the Steps 1, 2, 3.
