But at the PGA Champions Tour stop this week outside of Atlanta, the Greater Gwinnett Championship, the purpose of Kid's Day is two-fold.

It's not only to get kids active, but it's to introduce the sport of golf to juniors and let them know that it's fun.

During the three hours when it was officially Kid's Day," you saw moms and dads alongside their kids swinging clubs and talking about the sport of golf.

All week long, kids were admitted free with a paid adult,

Activities at Greater Gwinnett Championship Kid's Day 2014 included local appearances by local mascots like Chopper of the Gwinnett Braves, General from Georgia Gwinnett College, and Scrappy from Kennesaw State University. The kids also were able to learn about some of the local golf programs from www.AtlantaJuniorGolf.org and take part in some face painting, golf games and watching all the golf action.

Dozens of kids took part in the Kid's Day festivities, held on the lawn behind the clubhouse on Saturday.

It may have been windy and they may have been a little moisture in the air, but it didn't seem to dampen the spirits of golf fans or these kids being introduced to the sport of golf.
