Let’s face it, we love golf so much that we are more than eager to pass on this passion to our sons. Not because we think they will become professional golfers, but because we know that golf is something we can have in common for the rest of our lives. I can’t think of anything else that I do with my son, that makes him so eager to spend 4 or 5 hours hanging out with his dad. Yet, for some reason we are less likely to encourage our daughters to play golf, and that’s a shame.
There is a saying that “If you educate a man, you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman, you educate a family.” Well, the same may be said for golf. If you teach your daughter to play golf, she in turn is more likely to teach your grandchildren, and then the whole family has something in common that can be shared for generations. In her post, Abbey Algiers, for GirlsGolf.Org, explains why golf is just as important for girls as it is for boys.
