They're easier to swing, which makes the days that we go golfing all the more fun that they have sets of clubs that is personalized.

Like many Americans, Lori and Neal Oberting are people who see family time disappearing for others in this country. Times of togetherness are falling by the wayside and being replaced with overtime, video games and fast food restaurant meals. Unlike most people, however, the Obertings are not standing idly by and are offering a fetching alternative to awkward between parents and children.
In February 2009, the Obertings launched http://www.YouthGolfing.com, a website that encourages kids to move themselves away from the television and onto the fairway.
"We golf with our grandkids and our children," began Lori. "We feel like this is a good way to get families excited about spending time with each other."
Unlike many big box retailers and sports shops, YouthGolfing.com specializes in typically difficult to find items such as youth golf clubs and junior golf apparel. They also carry a selection of instructional golf DVDs for the young, novice players.
"We want to concentrate on having kids start out the right way with playing golf and be able to enjoy games with their families," said Neal.
The youth golf sets that are on the website are affordable and vary in selection. The selection is based on the Obertings own experience with kids' golf clubs.
"Our granddaughters have their own set of clubs and they're especially made for them," said Lori. "They're easier to swing, which makes the days that we go golfing all the more fun that they have sets of clubs that is personalized."
Though the site is new in itself, Neal and Lori are planning on expanding their product line to include matching apparel for adults and have even added a new blog, http://www.KidsGolfChat.com.
The blog gives insight into golfing as a family activity and further emphasizing the importance of togetherness through the sport.
"I work at a golf course," said Neal, "and I think much of the blogs will come from working there and retelling anecdotes of parents who have introduced golfing to their kids."
Unlike many other retailers, the goal of YouthGolfing.com isn't strictly to make money, but rather to open up the green to any family who wants to bond over a united goal of not ending up in the sand.
"Really, it's about having a good time with each other," said Lori. "It's good exercise for kids and they can start as young as three years old. It's just a fun game."
