My dad always said that a golf course is the best place to raise children, and I have to echo his sentiment.   A child who runs home from school to get his golf clubs and practice is not hanging out in an alley experimenting with drugs.  An adolescent or teen who plays 18 or 36 holes of golf a day, virtually from dawn 'til dark, is too tired to stay out late at night drinking.  A child who plays golf develops life skills such as goal-setting, discipline, self-motivation, and learning from mistakes and disappointments. 

Living in Crofton provided my children the opportunity to play golf every day that weather permitted, and my sons took full advantage of that.  They competed locally, regionally and nationally - and went to college on golf scholarships.  We never had to worry about them... we knew where to find them, because we often played golf with them or watched them play.  Their younger sister learned the game, too (although she didn't compete growing up), but she certainly enjoys golf as an adult. 

Living in Crofton, your children probably will be a bike ride or walk away from the course at Crofton Country Club or Walden.  It's a lifestyle that you and they can both enjoy.  But I should warn you... 



Bring your long game with you when you tee it up at Crofton Country Club.

It's a Par 72 course that plays 7211 yards from the Championship tees, 6782 from the Blues, 6297 from the White, 6004 from the Golds and 5529 from the Reds.   With a course rating of 74 and slope rating of 136, it plays tough as well as long.  The home-lined fairways, particularly on the front nine, and three water hazards (two creeks and the pond on #12) demand accuracy as well as length from both tees and fairways. 

Crofton Country Club's 18-hole course, designed by Ed Ault and built in 1964, has bent green fairways and greens.  With sandy soil, drainage is excellent, and the course is open year-round.  



Nearby Walden Golf Club is more friendly to weekend and juniorgolfers with a shorter game, playing just 6504 yards f

rom the Professional tees, 6312 from the Blues, 5947 from the Whites, 5335 from the Golds and 4384 from the Reds.  It is a Par 71 course, with a 72.1 course rating and 132 slope rating.  Water hazards come into play on fifteen holes.

Designed by Lindsey Irvin in 1990, townhomes and detached homes have grown up around and along Walden Golf Club ever since.   The course features sloped greens of bent grass, and the fairways are winter rye.

My whole family golfed...and my short game was so bad (I could smack the ball though) that I didn't continue. My mom is 79...golfs every Monday and works at the country club 4 days a week.

Margaret- What a wonderful and complete post. Full of facts, information and telling a great story all wrapped up nicely together, a great package. I do not golf, Nestor and my 4 year old love to golf. What a great family tie you have together and scholarships to boot! 

Hey Sally- There is always something new and wonderful to know about you and your family! Good for your mom! Katerina

Sally - I'm still chuckling at the description of your short game!  Great for your mom... my grandfather played 'til he couldn't.  Kept him healthy and happy.  Maybe when I finally retire from real estate I can take it up again.

Katerina - Thanks for the compliment on my post.  'Hope your 4-year old has an opportunity like my kids did.  Golf has shaped their lives in so many ways - from their values to the fabulous opportunities they had to travel as teenagers to their job successes.  Who knew, my dad was right all along.

Margaret, I just came across this post looking at another one you wrote about golf courses and your dad was right. Get your child involved in a sport and they won't have time to get in trouble. We live in a golf community and I am going to get us involved in this wonderful sport.

Sharon, Thank you for resurrecting this ol' post.  Yes, golf provided some wonderful opportunities for my children when they were young, and still does for them as adults.
