I used to golf, but that's been ages. I remember getting clubs for my kids at pro shops and having them cut down and re-gripped to fit. They were used clubs but in good shape.

Last winter, I lost my only niece to cancer, leaving her husband with their two small children...now 4 and 6 years old. He's a big golfer, and I thought it would be nice to get them some clubs so their dad can take them to the driving range and spend more time together. (It's been a very tough year).

So....while I know I may need to cut down some clubs, is there a place in SA that sells a decent childrens bag and any accessories? We're going to get them some beginner lessons with a pro too.

I believe Academy sells them. So sorry about the loss of your niece. My cousin succumbed to breast cancer at 34, leaving 4 young daughters. It's so unfair.

Well, I don't have any advice on the equipment, but my goodness... what a very sad story....
God BLESS those little babies and their daddy.... I'm sure daddy is just in shell shock and bewilderment much of the time.....

they are in my prayers, for sure....
what a sad sad thing..... I just want to cry for those little ones... well, for Dad too really.....

Target used to sell Nike golf clubs for children. I'm not a golfer, but these did seem to be higher quality than the "52 clubs for 10.00 type" (or what ever)!! My son is short statured, and I have had my eye on these, should he decide to take his grandpa up on his offer of golf lessons!

There is a golf club in Brachenrifge Park called "The First Tee". It's a club to teach golf to children and also helps with life lessons. They have the equipment to use without buying it until the kids grow big enough to have thier own. They have the driving range, a 9 hole course and give lessons.
It's on Mulberry in the park.

Here is a link to ALamo GOlf Club over on the west side. They have a good children's program.
Alamo Golf Club - Junior Camps
Also there is a second hand sports store here in SA. It used to be called "2nd chance golf" but now it's owned by Edwin Watts. I think it's off I-10 they might have children's sets, because a lot of families sell theirs as the kids get older.
