About

Golf in Schools

More than 129,000 boys and girls at 221 schools in New Jersey have an opportunity to tee it up in gym class thanks to a committed team of PGA Professionals. 

 

The New Jersey Golf Foundation provides each school with an allotment of developmentally appropriate equipment that allows golf to be learned and played in non-traditional venues, such as a school gymnasium and limited-space outdoor areas, as golf programming has become an established program within the physical education curriculum across the state.
