Each junior package set comes in a variety of different size options to cater for all ages and sizes of those younger golfers. Depending on the brand, the different sized package sets are either labelled via a colour scheme or sized by a particular age range. Junior package sets start normally for ages between 3 to 5 years old. The next package set up, moves into the 6 to 8 year old bracket, then on to the 9 to 11 year olds and then finally for ages between 12 and 14 years old. Each different age category, whether based on a coloured or numbered scheme, comes proportionally sized to the appropriate age dimensions as well as a slightly different combination of the club types included. Although age is mostly the deciding factor for establishing the best size set a child needs, their height and stature are vitally as important and so it is common for a younger child to fall into an older category bracket and vice versa, presuming the set is the best fit. The ideal junior package set should last a child for between 1 and 2 years before the child moves up through each size bracket before entering the adult club market.
Depending on the make, model and size. The junior package set aims to make the club decision process as straightforward as possible for the younger golfer. The primary aspect of the set is to provide the minimum amount of clubs a young prodigy needs in order to cover each department of their bag. Normally the junior package set includes a driver, fairway wood or hybrid, an iron set ranging from 1 to 3 irons, a putter and a bag. This is everything a junior golfer needs to get their promising golfer career going, no matter what level or age they are entering into the sport.
All junior golf clubs contain lightweight graphite shafts in order to ensure that each golf club is easy to lift and swing for juniors. With juniors entering the sport for the first time, it will take time for their swing and technique to develop and so a lighter club enables them to develop and swing more freely without hindering their swing path. Heavy clubs are a massive hindrance to any junior players as the heavy weighted shafts and club heads dictate the direction of the swing path due to the natural force of gravity pulling the heavier object down. This would prevent the junior from letting their natural swing work take its toll and therefore would sink in some nasty bad habits into the junior’s technique. The modern day junior package set provides a junior with optimum forgiveness and feel which is a necessary requirement for their development as a young golfer.
Children’s & Junior Golf Club Frequently Asked Questions
What age are junior golf clubs for?
Junior golf clubs tend to be categorised by age, though you can find a junior golf set by measurement too. They start at around age 3 and move up through to the age of 17, after which it’s time to consider an adult’s golf set as your teen grows up. Junior golf clubs are specifically designed to be used by kids, so they’re lighter in weight with higher lofts for that added forgiveness, whilst your little golfer finds their swing. As your child grows up, they’ll move through different junior golf sets, because their height, and own body mass will change and they’ll be able to handle an increasingly sturdier shaft.
How to measure golf club length for juniors?
Typically, the best choice of kids golf clubs is around 1.5 inches longer than the exact fit, because this means your young golfer can grow into their clubs whilst they practice. It also means they can choke down on the club – meaning they can move their hands further down the grip as they adjust their swing speed and shot length. Manufacturers like Benross offer children’s golf clubs by height range, so if your child falls within their club length parameters, then those are the clubs for your child. If you’d rather shop by age range, then well-known brand names such as Fazer and Wilson offer golf sets from ages 3 through to age 11.
How many golf clubs does a child need?
For young golfers ages 3-5, we would recommend a simple kids golf set of 3 clubs – a driver, an iron, and a putter. At this age, they’re just becoming acquainted with the sport, so start out with the basics so they can learn with lightweight clubs. As they grow up, from ages 6 up to 11, they’ll be learning more and more about their technique, their swing, their stance, and the significance of each club. This is when they need a set of children’s golf clubs that has around 5 to 6 pieces included, because they’re learning to play the game at a new level.
