No one picks up golf at the same age.  Some people take up golf the moment they start walking, some people take it up in high school to join the team, or some people start playing when their kids start playing.  No matter when you start playing, it is never too late to take up golf! 

The Sun Country Golf Cycle of life is a great model to follow when you start playing the game yourself or when your kids start playing.  There is no exact starting point on the cycle because everyone begins to play golf at a different age!

After high school, there are plenty of opportunities to still play competitive golf in college!  There are plenty of NCAA Division I, II, and III varsity golf programs in the country.  In addition, college students have the opportunity to play club golf.  Club golf teams play in the NCCGA, and are not part of college athletic departments.  Students organize their teams themselves, schedule their own events, and compete against other local colleges and universities.
