Introducing middle school students to golf brings with it opportunities for both physical and mental growth. As we embark on this exciting journey through the OPEN golf module, students will not only learn the fundamental techniques of putting and chipping, but they will also develop essential life skills such as patience, perseverance, and sportsmanship. Through engaging activities and structured lessons, students will discover the joys of mastering a new skill while fostering a lifelong appreciation for the game of golf and the importance of maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle. Join us as we tee off on a journey of discovery and enrichment, both on and off the green!

The activities within this module develop and reinforce responsible behaviors. All participants are given the opportunity to explore golf in a fun and engaging environment where everyone can feel successful. This allows students to build connections with their classmates that can extend beyond physical education.
