Creating Lifelong Golfers

Watson Links combines golf and mentoring to help grow the next generation of golfers.


Eight-time Major Champion Tom Watson’s initiative provides a bridge from golf lessons on the driving range to playing on a real golf course for aspiring players ages 10 to 18. The model is simple: pair adult golf mentors with junior golfers for fun, relaxed rounds of golf to hone basic skills, introduce course etiquette and reinforce valuable life skills – all for free!

Parents / Guardians

Help your child make the transition from basic lessons to lifelong player a comfortable one with the help of friendly, experienced golf mentors. They’ll get to play on golf courses and learn important skills, all at no cost to you!
