Growing the Game of Golf

For some time now, 2nd Swing Golf in Minneapolis and Minnetonka, Minn., has been quietly helping to grow the game of it feels so passionately about by providing a free, real child-sized golf club to any kid who visits a store with a parent or guardian.

“At 2nd Swing, we feel it’s really important to help invest in growing the game through our youth. To do so, we want to make golf clubs as accessible as possible for kids, so we implemented the 2nd Swing 1st Club Free program,” said Simon Kallal, CEO of 2nd Swing Golf.

The 2nd Swing 1st Club program offers a free golf club in stores to all kids in order to generate growth in the game its passionate about.

The 2nd Swing 1st Club Free program has been going on for the past couple years, mostly through word-of-mouth.

The 2nd Swing 1st Club Free program is available to any child between the ages of 3 and 12. In order to participate, all someone has to do is mention it to a sales person in either the 2nd Swing Golf store at 2412 E. Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis (612-331-9303) or at 13031 Ridgedale Drive, Minnetonka (952-546-1906).  

Then, 2nd Swing’s professional clubfitters will get the right size club for the child at no charge.

No purchase is necessary to qualify, and the 2nd Swing 1st Club Free program is valid in stores only. Please keep in mind that the supply of kids’ clubs available may be limited from time to time.

Also, if a customer wants more children’s clubs, it may be nice to know that the company donates $10 from every new junior golf club set sale to benefit the international nonprofit The First Tee youth golf program. But 2nd Swing Golf’s association with The First Tee goes much further. 

The First Tee has reached more than 3.6 million young people through nearly 900 programming locations, in approximately 180 chapters. The First Tee boasts almost 2,000 active coaches, more than 17,000 volunteers and nearly 700 PGA and LPGA professionals serving as coaches, executive directors, staff and volunteers. 

And2nd Swing Golf has been an active participant in the 16-year-old The First Tee program as a supplier of golf equipment trade-in services.

Through 2nd Swing’s agreement, customers can send pre-owned clubs to 2nd Swing Golf and choose to donate the trade-in value of the clubs to a designated chapter of The First Tee or The First Tee home office. Chapters also can trade in donated equipment and receive a portion of the value to support their programs.

2nd Swing provides The First Tee with a process that allows golfers to make a monetary contribution by donating their used golf equipment, Kallal said.

“In just four years, we have donated more than $75,000 to The First Tee by accepting golf club donations and converting them to cash for its chapters,” according to 2nd Swing.

Chapters and individuals with questions about the program can call 612-216-5205 ext. 3, or send an email to
