The Leadbetter Golf Academy in Orlando, Florida hosted their annual Leadbetter Kids Golf Day over the weekend which turned out to be an enormous success. Within hours of announcing the event, all age groups reached capacity. Leadbetter Kids Golf Day brought in kids ages 4-12 from the greater Orlando area to help grow the love of the game.
The kids had a blast at the event - playing in numerous team building games like follow the leader, incorporating balance and agility, learning how to hold a golf club and successfully hit a golf ball at a target.
Leadbetter Kids is excited to be bringing the best kids golf programming to Orlando this Spring, starting with their Spring Kickoff Series.

David Leadbetter's Thoughts On Kids Golf
Kids golf encourages kids to live a healthy, active lifestyle at a young age. Not only does the sport help produce self-motivated children, but it teaches them the skills they need to become future champions in golf and life. The programming allows kids to learn integrity, work ethic, and teamwork skills all while having fun and playing a sport with new friends.
David Leadbetter often says, “golf is a game for life”. He believes that kids golf will allow children to learning hand-eye coordination, honesty, integrity, and help develop techniques that easily translate to other sports as well such as tennis.
