Our Chapter is one of many Chapters spread across the United States and other countries. We teach children Life Skills and Healthy Habits through the game of golf. We conduct group based golf classes once a week for a period of time each of the four seasons. We use activity based learning, where a golf skill, fundamental, factor of influence, and a life skill are seamlessly delivered to produce a mastery driven class. Each activity we do is game based on either, putting, chipping, pitching, full swing (irons and drivers), and bunker play. Participants will also learn the Rules of Golf, terminology on the golf course, and other situational based course management strategies. Our goal for each participant is for them to learn to enjoy the game of golf and its inherent values as well as learn to use the Life Skills teachings not only on the golf course, but also in their own personal lives whether it be at home, in school, or with their friends.
