The Golfstarz Way

There are 2 Golfstarz programmes for teaching kids. The 'Indoor Programme' which is ideal for schools and community groups and the 'Outdoor Programme' which is more technical and uses conventional golf clubs and is best taught at golf courses. Both programmes include a comprehensive step by step syllabus that has been carefully put together such that by using creative learning it activates the imagination and let’s the kids join the dots.

Using Cartoons and Teaching Aids to Create Interest

By using age related golf clubs, teaching aids, colours and cartoons each session allows golf education through fun. What Billy Bunker tells them on ‘how to avoid the crocodiles’ stays with them for life.

Creating a Great Foundation

The Indoor Programme is more focussed on general physical and social skill development while the Outdoor Programme incorporates a Golfstarz assessment process that ensures the child can only progress if they get the golf basics right. More advanced sports science techniques are used in the later sessions.

A Few Simple Points in Each Lesson

Golf is complicated even for the best of us. Rather than try and teach too much, too quickly, the Golfstarz Way tackles one golf skill per session using a 'a key things to remember' approach.
