Two golf coaches set up a mini golf course in the school gym.  Students learn how to swing a golf club and get the chance to tee off.  For safety reasons, tennis balls are used rather than actual golf balls.

The classes teach students about character and how golf can lead to a healthy life-style.  The First Tee Organization provides the workshops free of charge.
