WHERE SHOULD I BUY JUNIOR GOLF CLUBS AND WHAT SHOULD I BUY?
Through our partnership with US Kids Golf, First Tee of the North Coast is able to help determine and order the proper size set for your child. Visit the US Kids Golf equipment page HERE to view available options.
When looking for junior clubs, be sure to purchase clubs based on your child’s height, not their age. Junior sets are sold in 3″ increments and the number displayed is the appropriate height of the child, NOT the length of the clubs.
