olf- I always think back to Robin Williams stand up bit- The ultimate goal of the game:
getting that teeny-tiny ball in to the little gopher hole located hundreds of yards away!
The frustration, the elation, the groans of disappointment and the shouts of joy, all part
of the game. So, why should we consider taking up the sport? Well, making it a family event is
the first thing that comes to mind.
Golf can be an event around which all family members can gather and spend time together.
Perhaps it’s connecting with the siblings you don’t see too often or it can serve as an opportunity
for parents to provide positive feedback and encouragement to their kids. Secondly it gets us out doors- walking and being
active outside allows for breathing in fresh air and helps to establish healthy exercise habits plus that core- talk about that
fantastic core strengthening and stability we can gain from the sport. Not to mention, it is indeed a lifelong game that we
can play into our 90’s. As with other sports golf has a heavy theme of Self-Improvement.
As players we analyze what we did well and what has to change in order to improve. Players develop habits of
and accepting critiques
and tips from others. At
the Ymca Afterschool
program one of the ac-
tivities kids are offered
is to participate in the
First Tee program- the
kids are introduced to
the important themes
team work, patience
and health. Finally, and
maybe the most impor-
tant benefit of all, Fun!
Gathering with friends
and family to play golf gives us the opportunity to spend time in friendly competition or companionship with those we
cherish most. Well, I think I have talked myself in to playing a round!
The Lompoc Family YMCA will be hosting our 20th annual Ketrenia Klassic- Kids For Character Golf Tournament
