About US Kids:
U.S. Kids Golf was started in January 1997 by Mr. Dan Van Horn after his own kid's enthusiasm for golf quickly faded. He found that cut-off clubs were too heavy and hard for kids to use so he designed a club 25% lighter than adult ones. The company has since branched to include shoes, gloves, wear, and pull carts. This focus on designing around kids unique needs has made them the world's largest maker of children's golf equipment. They are the only company dedicated entirely to children's golf providing top level equipment to help children enjoy the game. U.S. Kids Golf Tour Series clubs are the only children's clubs registered and approved by the USGA and R&A, they may be used in any competition.
USKids holds their World Championship at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, North Carolina, the home of American Golf, the U.S. Kids Golf World Championship is the largest and most prestigious event in the world for players 12 and under. This three-day tournament is held in a fantastic setting of tall southern pines and Donald Ross greens and attracts over 1,200 participants from across the United States and more than 30 countries abroad. Players, ages 5 to 12, who have qualified for the World Championship through their regions World Championship Qualifiers, Local Tours, European and Regional Championships, and performance in previous World Championships are eligible to attend.
