Hook A Kid On Golf Program Director Andy Parker recently had the opportunity to speak with Lauren Thompson of the Golf Channel during Morning Drive's "Junior Golf Week." The program's origin, design and impact are discussed in the brief segment.
Hook A Kid On Golf is very thankful for having the opportunity to share a little bit about our history and is humbled to be recognized as one of America's leading programs when it comes to introducing kids to the game of golf.
Hook A Kid On Golf is America's most comprehensive national youth golf program. Our goal is to make the game of golf as accessible for youngsters as other youth sports such as baseball, basketball, football and soccer.
Hook A Kid On Golf strives to provide communities with a comprehensive youth golf program that eliminates all the obstacles that discourage youngsters from learning and continuing to play golf while instilling in them an understanding of golf's rules, etiquette and history.
Hook A Kid On Golf provides communities with three levels of curriculum and all the tools necessary to accomplish an organized youth golf program. These tools include providing quality equipment, affordable instruction, a structured system to learn how to play the game on the course and finally, a format for play that includes competition but stresses fun and learning.
