Golf in schools: competitive, innovative, educational and inclusive
The Golf Foundation reports that its adapted and competitive golf offering for schools is proving a big hit with teachers and pupils.
The Foundation’s ‘HSBC Golf Roots’ programme in schools is gathering significant momentum in 2013, as 39 out of 46 County Local Organising Committees have selected an HSBC Golf Roots competition for the current academic year as part of England’s School Games curriculum. This high proportion is second only to athletics, and ahead of traditional school sports such as football, cricket and netball.
To find out more about 'HSBC Golf Roots' programme, to get involved with the School Games, or to register to deliver the official national learning programme - the Junior Golf Passport - simply click on the photos above.
The Youth Sport Trust has selected golf as an example of good practise for a sport engaging with the School Games. See the case study here.

Major honours were presented to those who have demonstrated their passion for grass roots junior golf: volunteers, PGA Professionals, junior organisers, schoolteachers and local authority officers, during the Golf Foundation President’s Awards on Wednesday (22nd of May) at Wentworth Club.
