Developed by Physical and Health Education Canada, in partnership with Golf Canada and the PGA of Canada, Golf in Schools has been designed to enable elementary school teachers “regardless of their golf knowledge, skill or background” the ability to deliver essential physical education through the sport of golf. Each school is outfitted with a full set of plastic golf clubs and equipment. Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, the Golf in Schools Program is bringing the game of golf to Canadian schools. This program has been developed for teachers to provide students the opportunity to develop aspects of physical literacy related to the sport of golf and increase student knowledge and appreciation for the sport of golf.
In continuation of the program’s focus to provide cutting-edge lesson plans, learning resources have evolved with the addition of the Life Skills curriculum, developed from research conducted by the University of Ottawa. This extension places added focus on integrating transferable life skills such as honesty and respect into the Golf in Schools lesson plans.
Golf Saskatchewan has delivered several Golf in School kits to schools and courses over the years. Learn more by reading below.
