Golf In Primary Schools

Primary Schools Programme

Our new Schools Programme is designed to make the introduction of golf to young people fun, inclusive and enriching. The adapted equipment is bright and colourful, big and bold, so that pupils achieve success straight away. Sessions are taught through a series of lively team games suitable for a school hall or playground. The activities can be adapted to the ability of the pupils. Life skills are taught through our games and encourage pupils to think how they can use these skills away from the playground. A memorable and enjoyable experience is encouraged at the local golf club.

The Primary Schools Programme will ensure that boys and girls of all abilities and from all backgrounds are introduced to the sport over a period of 6 weeks in fun and meaningful golf sessions.
