The Golf Foundation Primary Schools Programme: Using Golfway Play™

Published on 6th Mar 2023

Golfway is proud to support the Golf Foundation in its Primary Schools Programme, aimed at introducing golf to children and young people across the United Kingdom.

The programme provides a platform for children from all backgrounds to experience golf, learn fundamental golf skills, and develop skills for life in a fun and meaningful way. Primary schools that sign up for the programme will be among the first to experience its benefits.

The new Primary Schools Programme builds on the success of the previous programme, which has already introduced golf to over 3 million children in the UK. The new programme features a range of improvements, including:

  • New equipment: The programme includes new golf clubs, balls, and targets, which have been specially designed to be easier for children to use.

  • New programme and resources: The programme features a new curriculum, which has been developed to help teachers and coaches deliver high-quality golf sessions. It also includes a range of resources, including lesson plans, activity sheets, and online training materials.

  • New training for teachers and coaches: The programme includes training for teachers and coaches, which has been developed in partnership with the Professional Golfers' Association (PGA). The training covers everything from basic golf skills to how to deliver fun and engaging sessions.

The Golf Foundation is inviting primary schools to register and become part of the new programme; to help schools get started, the Golf Foundation is funding 50% of the Golfway Play® teaching pack, which is valued at £500

By taking part in the Primary Schools Programme, schools will be giving their pupils the opportunity to learn a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Golf is a great way for children to develop their physical skills, such as hand-eye coordination and balance, as well as their social and emotional skills, such as sportsmanship, resilience, and teamwork.

In summary, the Golf Foundation Primary Schools Programme is an excellent opportunity for primary schools to introduce their pupils to the sport of golf in a fun and engaging way. With new and improved equipment, resources, and training, the programme is sure to be a hit with children and teachers alike. Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to get involved!
