U.S. Kids Golf is celebrating ten years of junior golf in Arizona! Girls and boys ages 5 to 14 compete with age appropriate yardages, playing 9 or 18 holes determined by age. Our organized tournaments have the feel of a real tour event.
U.S. Kids Golf is the “Little League” of golf. Many players receive invites to play beyond the local level in state, regional, national and international events around the world. Parents are strongly encouraged to take part in the experience by caddying or spectating with their son or daughter.
Local Tours, such as Arizona, are developmental. There is a mix of new tournament players and seasoned veterans. However, all players are still developing their golf game, no matter what ability level.
“Our focus is to create a positive family experience and a helping culture for those that are new to tournament golf,” said Dale Balvin, Arizona’s Tournament Director. “U.S. Kids Golf Local Tours are the perfect way to introduce your child to tournament golf.”
U.S. Kids Golf isn’t just about golf. Many young players and families have connected at our events and become good friends off the course. That is what our tour, and U.S. Kids Golf as a whole, is all about. Every tournament that we organize is focused on fulfilling our mission – “The mission of U.S. Kids Golf is to help kids have fun learning the lifelong game of golf and to encourage family interaction that builds lasting memories.”
U.S. Kids Golf Arizona offers 24 events in Phoenix, eight events in Tucson and a two-day, Arizona State Invitational. The Tucson Local Tour is open during the fall season, while the Phoenix Local Tour runs for three seasons—spring, summer and fall. Each Local Tour season is comprised of eight events. Please feel free to stop by a tournament!
