Many people from different areas of the golf world have supported Wee Links courses. Here are comments from a few of them:
Tom Watson, Eight Time Major Champion, World Golf Hall of Fame Inductee, Six Time PGA Player of the Year
"Wee Links courses are the best way to start people, young and old, playing the game of golf. Playing such short holes immediately teaches the golfer to develop a feel for distance and putting which are the two key fundamentals in succeeding at golf. We all know how important a good short game is in saving strokes and our
Wee Links courses are the perfect places to learn these skills."
Rob Wilkin, Head PGA Professional Heritage Park Golf Course
"We believe the short course 'Wee Links' at Heritage Park will be a fantastic addition to our golf facility. This new area is great for beginning and accomplished players, high schoolers to seniors, and the young and very young golfers to be! We are excited for the 2023 season!"
Ethan Shamet, Golf Course Superintendent Heritage Golf Course, and current Past President of the Heart of America Golf Course Superintendents Association.
“I’m very excited to be involved in both the constructing and maintaining one of the first Wee Links courses in the KC area. I can’t wait to see all the kids enjoying themselves as they learn the game of golf.”
Greg Capps, President, Kaw Valley Junior Golf Foundation
“The Red Bridge Wee Links at Twin Oaks has been a fantastic asset.
Wee Links provides:
our new golfers (young and old) with a venue to learn putting, chipping, and pitching, as well to initially play golf and experience success;
our more skilled players with a challenging way to continue to work on improving their short game.”
What a terrific concept and great way to grow the game!”
Tony Blake, Former Division 1 Golf Coach, Program Director First Tee of Greater KC, and Watson Golf Mentor Program.
“The importance of a Wee Links course is vital for the overall development of a junior golfer! This innovative short form of golf has direct impact on participation, enjoyment, playing frequency’ and is less time consuming. Wee Links golf allows a junior golfer to experience a vast increase in swings in a short amount of time and multiple shots styled in a random practice technique not yet available to juniors. I strongly believe Wee Links golf should be mandatory for the success of a junior program!”
Selina Redeker, Executive Director Kansas Golf Foundation.
“Wee Links is a game-changer for golf. While golf’s biggest hurdles are that it’s time-consuming and expensive, Wee Links is neither. Golf becomes accessible, affordable, and gratifying.”
