Cherokee Ridge is a proud supporter of junior golf! We believe junior golf is a fun lifetime sport that can bring generations of families together.
The game of golf also teaches valuable life skills:
- Physical Benefits: promotes overall physical fitness, is a low-impact and non-contact sport, cultivates a love of nature, and benefits healthy vision.
- Social Benefits: can be played alone or in teams, fosters friendships, and builds business skills.
- Mental and Emotional Benefits: teaches responsibility and discipline, teaches honesty, encourages quiet time, develops emotional control, and teaches patience.*
