Golf is a great sport for kids to get into. It teaches them patience, perseverance, and discipline, provides much-needed fresh air and exercise and it’s a great way for them to foster friendships and generally let off steam. The physical and mental benefits of golf are well-documented, and research has also shown that children who take up golf at an early age are more likely to continue with it into adulthood.
Skills built through golf such as decision-making, etiquette and planning can also be carried into adult working life giving them a head start in the world of business – so no matter how young your child is now, it’s worth investing in some kit!
So, to get them on their way and help them spend their pocket money (and your hard-earned cash!) Online Golf has handpicked this season’s must-have on-course clothing for your mini golfers of all abilities – from those just beginning to the aspiring Tigers – they’ll go from novice to pro in no time!
BEN ROSS JUNIOR FAIRWAY WOOD (£27.99)
An absolute necessity for a game of golf, your child will need a few clubs. It’s a good idea to build a set of clubs slowly as your child improves and you know they’re actually going to stick at it! With a clever colour-coded system to find the correct golf club for your child’s height, the Ben Ross Fairway Wood features an oversize head construction with a high amount of loft to make getting the ball off the tee easier, ensuring your child’s confidence is boosted. It has an undersized grip to fit little hands and comes complete with a 12-month warranty and head cover.
SKECHERS BLASTER JUNIOR SHOES (£39.90)
A stylish, waterproof shoe allows your junior golfer to perform in any weather. With replaceable Softspikes® for added grip on slippery ground and Ultra GoTM midsole cushioning for added comfort while walking the course, this lace-up shoe has a modern, sleek design with stitching and colour-pop details to ensure your budding golfer looks the part too!

As the temperatures start to cool, layering is important and this Under Armour garment won’t disappoint. With quick drying UA Tech fabric, this mid layer provides comfort and style on and off the course. Despite the streamlined fit and shaped hem, its stretch properties allow a complete range of motion while staying completely on trend.
