The nation’s largest “Golf
In Schools” program debuted at Trenton
Catholic Academy this past week, as the New
Jersey Golf Foundation (NJGF), the charitable arm of the New Jersey PGA
Section, sent PGA Professionals Ryan Jones and Matt Callahan to
physical education class, to teach students the fundamentals during
their first class session. Fully funded by
the NJGF at no cost to school districts, Golf In Schools
currently impacts more 110,000 children (K-8)
at more than 200 schools in New Jersey, and
continues to grow. Golf In Schools is an initiative
designed to introduce the game of golf to children by incorporating it into the
physical education curriculum at elementary and middle schools, as
the NJGF provides each school with the golf equipment they need to bring
the game into the non-traditional setting of the school’s gymnasium and limited-space outdoor areas.
