ClubGolf in primary schools follows a six-week programme designed to give children aged nine a first introduction to golf in primary school. It is designed as a fun activity using colourful, modified golf equipment.
ClubGolf in primary schools is delivered to P5 children in curriculum time by class teachers or suitably trained and disclosed volunteers. Your local Active Schools Coordinator can help with training opportunities. If you are a teacher interested in finding out more, you should ask your Head Teacher for details.
Children will learn some basic golfing skills and terms. They will receive a positive first experience of golf, and an opportunity to progress on to a ClubGolf Stage 1 programme at a local golf club or facility.

Modified junior golf equipment for schools and clubs
The junior equipment is ideal for kids and provides a method for teachers to introduce golf in a safe, fun way.
The equipment is affordable through the Local Authority/ClubGolf funding partnership.
The ClubGolf programme is designed to run with either SNAG or Tri-Golf equipment. It is acknowledged and accepted that many schools will have access to both kits and therefore adapt a "mix-and-match" approach to sessions.
Participating children will expect to learn some basic golfing concepts and terminology. They will receive a positive first experience of golf, and an opportunity to progress on to a ClubGolf Stage 1 programme at a local golf club or facility.
