When you’re on the road and have a little one cooped up in the car, all that pent up energy can translate into a serious headache for Mom and Dad. Or perhaps you’re looking for a hobby for your little one that can teach them some dedication and persistence. Many of Surrey’s beautiful golf courses offer lessons and courses fit for even the tiniest of golfers.
Birdies and Buckets Family Golf Centre is an aptly named pitch and putt course comprised of 9 holes for short attention spans and growing skill levels. With ample practice space in the form of a 60 yard short game area and large, two-level driving range for perfecting those swings. The Range is heated, making anytime a great time to hit a bucket of balls. The Range also features fun hitting targets for an added splash of excitement.
Junior golfers will enjoy the Willows Nine course at Surrey Golf Club. Designed for novice Golfers looking for a go at the greens, Surrey Golf Club also offers a Junior Golf Club for those especially keen. The Willows 9 features a nice mix of par 3, par 4, and even a par 5 for a variety of skill-testing holes. This par 32 is perfect for beginners looking for a challenging yet fun day out on the course.
Maybe you’re looking for less of a time commitment? Hit the greens at Bear Creek Park’s “natural” mini-golf course. Designed to meander among tall cedar, hemlock and fir trees, the course is shaded and a perfect way to beat the heat on a summer day. The course takes about 45 minutes and each hole has unique obstacles and features to challenge and entertain both experienced and novice players.
Whether the green is your little one’s happy place, or they’re chomping at the bit to learn something new, on your stay in Surrey there’s a course or range to expel some of that energy only kiddos seem to have.
