One of my favorite activities here at Kiawah Island Golf Resort is called The Family Tee Program.
Family Tee Program:
– Tees markers are setup on the golf course half way down the hole (no more than 180 yards)
– All members of the family must play from these tee markers. Kids are FREE and adults pay half the normal rate
– Starts everyday at 4:30-6pm. Tee Times are 10 minutes apart.
– Offered the week before Easter and week after Easter, Memorial Day-Labor Day, week of Thanksgiving and Christmas
This program is all about FAMILY!!! The holes are 180 yards….parents this is a great time to grab three clubs: putter, SW, PW. It is time to work on your short game!!! Kids, it is time to out drive your parents and hit the ball far with all your clubs. Yes, this time is not about us, it is time to be about the kids. Parents should be out there to support your kids and show them how much fun the game is! Play a scramble together, play partners, play match play, the options are endless! The best part is everybody around you on the golf course is there also because of their family!
Now, I understand that your golf course might not have this program and you can’t just hop on a plane to come to Kiawah but……you can do this on your own. Take your scorecard cut the holes in half and play from that yardage on each hole. Maybe make a suggestion to your golf pro about possibly adding this program to your course. Let the kids play well! This is just another way to make it fun for you and your kids. As they improve back the tees up a little bit. Before you know it, you and your family will be playing from your tee box and beating you!!!
