From Buck Hill Falls:
With the first day of school looming right around the corner and thoughts turn to how to fill the last hazy days of summer, your child has become interested in playing golf. As luck would have it, the fall season with its cool breezes and clear skies, is the perfect time to introduce your child to a sport they can play for a lifetime. Making a child’s first experience with golf can be a memorable time for both of you to share.
Whether your kids are new to the links or are veteran players, choosing the right course can be the difference between nourishing a lifelong enjoyment and creating fond memories, or ending your child’s interest in the sport in an afternoon.
As you weigh your options on the perfect location, consider Buck Hill’s semi-private Golf Course. The Club is only 90 minutes from New York City and an even shorter trip from the NJ suburbs. It offers a great deal on golfing with children of all skill levels. With three courses available to play, you also have variety for return visits. When you are finished with your rounds, putting time, or driving range fun, you can stop over to the Fairway Grille for a full lunch or dinner menu that also features kid-friendly foods!
Here are a few tips for getting involved at the course, so you can be sure to have a great time together:
- Find a course that is kid-friendly if your goal is to enjoy the day on the green with your kids. A course that only allows for children to play will also need to have a kind staff and patient players who are understanding of those who are just learning.
- Be sure that you ask about tee and cart fees for kids up front as golf courses occasionally charge different rates for children players. Be sure you pick a course that offers a fair price for kids who are just getting the feel for the game. Ask the course if they offer children’s Pro Shop rentals. If the little ones are still new to the game, they may decide their interests have changed a few months down the road. Don’t spend extra money on new equipment until you are certain they are interested in playing long-term.
- And, if the kids DO take to the game, choose a course that offers lessons. It allows your child to become familiar with the course staff as they learn the rules.
- Finally, plan some special time together while practicing as well by looking for a course that offers a driving range and putting green.
With this in mind, there’s no better place to introduce your child to golf than at the historic Buck Hill Golf Club. Loyalty to the soul of the game is a century-old tradition at the Buck Hill Golf Club, which opened its first nine holes in 1907. As golfers play through the wooded, rolling, mountainside terrain, they experience the timeless design of legendary golf architects Donald Ross and Robert White. Ridge line silhouettes, relentless undulations, and classic subtleties punctuate this premier, 27-hole course framed by forested mountains.
When your done on the links, Buck Hill Falls is the perfect destination to escape the intrusion of city life, as it offers a natural unplugged environment. From the first rhododendrons in Spring, the vibrant and dynamic mountain views in the Fall, or the frosted hemlocks in silvery Winter, Buck Hill is a hidden
gem nestled in 4500 acres of old growth forest in the Pocono Mountains. Buck Hill offers a unique and precious experience that is rare in modern day life, one with a friendly and welcoming spirit that encourages camaraderie amongst family, friends, and neighbors.
