   Mission Statement

 

These pictures display the setup and activities performed during the golf in schools program. We utilize SHORT and SNAG GOLF equipment to introduce the game to children who often times have never tried golf. We setup three stations: Driving, Chipping and Putting

 

The Playground Golf Foundation’s mission is to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. These programs will benefit all children in Columbia, Greene and Northern Dutchess County schools, including those that are underprivileged, have a physical or mental challenge, or are terminally ill. This introduction will impact the lives of children by providing equipment, transportation, scholarships and professional golf instruction delivered by trained PGA and First Tee coaches. These coaches will work hand in hand with host schools’ physical educators, during gym class. These in class activities along with afterschool programs will bridge the gap between golf and life, engage children to play this lifelong sport, and teach children these 9 core values:

  •       Honesty
  •       Integrity
  •       Sportsmanship
  •       Respect
  •       Confidence
  •       Responsibility
  •       Perseverance
  •       Courtesy
  •       Judgment

GOLF IN SCHOOLS

  •   Date: TBD
  •   Time: TBD
  •   Location: New York Golf Park
  •   Address: 5490 Route 23 & 9H • Hudson, NY 12534

Purpose of training is to prepare Physical Educators to effectively deliver a golf in schools unit utilizing SNAG / SHORT GOLF equipment. After the completion of this training the instructors will be comfortable and familiar with the equipment to assist a Playground Golf Foundation lead instructor for the 4-day intro to golf class.

The foundation will then allow the school to borrow the golf equipment for the next 2/3 weeks in order to complete actual unit that the children will be tested on. We would like to focus on target ages of elementary and middle school students in order to grow the game and strengthen the future of the high school teams in Columbia, Greene and Northern Dutchess Counties.
