Golf for children in Marseille
By playing golf, children learn about self control, sharing, respecting rules and following instructions while having fun in a natural setting. The golf instructors at the Golf Bastide de la Salette Golf Academy offer different coaching packages throughout the year as well as holiday clinics, the perfect way to teach children about environmental responsibility and biodiversity in a fun and sporty way.
The Golf Academy
The Bastide de la Salette Golf Academy has been one of the most dynamic and successful golf academies in France for several years. It has been run and managed by our 7 golf instructors for more than 20 years.
Lessons are held from September to June, outside of school holidays, based on a minimum of thirty sessions of one and a half hours each on average. Between 250 and 300 children aged from 4 to 18 are taught by our golf instructors, who divide them into groups based on age and ability. Their fun coaching sessions are tailored to each group, allowing the students to learn while enjoying themselves.
A free ranking tournament is organised for all abilities on the first Monday of the school holidays over 9 or 18 holes. The tournament is run by the golf instructors and by volunteers from the Association Sportive. It isn’t mandatory, but it’s a great opportunity for the children to come together at a sporting event in a friendly atmosphere.
