The Playground Golf Foundation’s mission is to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. These programs will benefit all children in Columbia, Greene and Northern Dutchess County schools, including those that are underprivileged, have a physical or mental challenge, or are terminally ill. This introduction will impact the lives of children by providing equipment, transportation, scholarships and professional golf instruction delivered by trained PGA and First Tee coaches. These coaches will work hand in hand with host schools’ physical educators, during gym class. These in class activities along with afterschool programs will bridge the gap between golf and life, engage children to play this lifelong sport, and teach children these 9 core values:
The sole purpose of these events is to engage the community to create awareness about the ultimate goals of the Playground Golf Foundation. These events will involve fun activities, games, food and beverage all for a great cause. 100% of the proceeds from these events will go towards providing equipment and programming to the schools and children in Columbia and Greene Counties.

Purpose of training is to prepare Physical Educators to effectively deliver a golf in schools unit utilizing SNAG / SHORT GOLF equipment. After the completion of this training the instructors will be comfortable and familiar with the equipment to assist a Playground Golf Foundation lead instructor for the 4-day intro to golf class.
The foundation will then allow the school to borrow the golf equipment for the next 2/3 weeks in order to complete actual unit that the children will be tested on. We would like to focus on target ages of elementary and middle school students in order to grow the game and strengthen the future of the high school teams in Columbia, Greene and Northern Dutchess Counties.
