Golf Lessons and Birthday Parties For Children in Suffolk

Written by MiriamSpall on Friday, May 25, 2018 - 11:17

Whether you are looking for Junior Golf lessons, organizing your child’s next birthday party or an activity as a family, we have got you covered.

Golf is a great sport to get your kids into, it is safe and a great way to make new friends. Golf birthday parties are designed to be fun and keep the children engaged with competitions and games. A great introduction to the game is by letting them hit some golf balls at a driving range or putting green  (a practice green is a putting surface usually found close to the club house, used to warm up and practice putting).  Many golf clubs and venues allow non members use of their facilities including a driving range and some also have an on-site crazy golf or mini golf area. 

 For those of you that are not familiar with Golf, a Driving range is an area where golfers can practice their golf swing, Golfers pay for various sizes of buckets of balls, usually designated as small (30–50 balls), medium (50-80 balls), and large (80-150 balls),[3] and hit at their leisure.
