November Golf Camp for Kids at 5 Under
With the holidays in full ‘swing,’ 5 Under is THANKFUL for a superb Thanksgiving week coaching the wonderful game of golf to kids from all over Southeast Texas. See details, pics and video below!
5 Under hosted a golf clinic for kids ages 6–10 this week. The short week leading up to Turkey Day gave kids a little mix of putting, chipping, driving, and a lot of practice.
5 Under’s resident PGA Associate, John Jeffrey, led instruction for the week along with help from company Vice President, John Miller, and our 5 Under staffer and former college golfer, Cade Jeans.
The kids began with putting and chipping where they learned to work on their form and tempo. Cade’s instructions started out with 6–10 ft. putts for the group, alternating targets and keeping the kids motivated.
The kids were challenged a little further with chipping short shots before graduating to the “tee box” bays for irons and drivers.
Campers were shown how to grip the club, how to swing through the ball, turn hips, shift momentum, and keep the front foot from twisting out of position. Coach Jeffrey and Coach Jeans set up the Go Fish! virtual game targets on the Toptracer Range to help make a game of things.
All the kids would agree that their favorite part was just gripping and ripping for a long blast and seeing the results of which “fish” they won on the monitors.
“It’s a real joy to work with the kids and teach them the game, make it fun, and see what they can do,” adds John Jeffrey. “For some kids, this is their introduction to golf; for others, they really want to improve their skill and work on their game. And that’s important to us and the parents…”
All the campers enjoyed their time for 3-hours each day here, even encouraging and helping each other along. At the end of the week, kids enjoyed photos, certificates, and prizes.
5 Under offers group kids golf camps throughout the summer, but for also holiday weeks and school breaks like this (Thanksgiving). 5 Under also offers camps and clinics for kids, juniors, and adults. Some businesses gift group lessons or arrange for group lessons as a perk or as team-building. 5 Under also puts on ladies’ clinics with outstanding female coaches.
Clinics are typically held outside in our Toptracer Range bays. 5 Under has 2 stories of 20 bays outdoors and 4 indoor Topgolf Swing Suites.
5 Under plans to add a Christmas holiday kids camp as well as a Spring Break camp. And 5U will continue weekly summer golf camps for kids all throughout the summer.
“These clinics and camps are perfect for getting into the game of golf or for training to get better,” says Coach Jeffrey. “5 Under offers a really unique, modernized venue for golfers to learn, practice, and just experience something different. Our technology allows us to make it fun, but also pinpoint areas to work on like angle, loft, distance, and so forth.”
If you are looking to improve your swing or even get introduced to the game of golf, 5 Under Golf Center is the premier spot in Southeast Texas to do it all.
