Golf is a brilliant game and can be a great "job" as well. I play golf myself and I know what the costs are like. If you are looking to get him some practice material it might be good to look at some other stuff as well. There are alot of training equipment that can be less expensive. I for instance used a golf net. It is something that you can make yourself. Where there is a will there is a way. Just have a look around on the internet and you will find some great training materials for your grandson. All the best to you.
