Name of Best Practice: Golf Unit Culminating Event Field Trip

Rationale/Purpose of Event: To give students the opportunity to practice their golf skills in a real world setting--at a local golf course, driving range, and miniature golf course.

Suggested Grade Level: 6-12

Materials Needed: Golf clubs and balls, transportation to the golf facility

Golf Unit Culminating Event Field Trip

At the end of our golf unit, we take our 8th graders to our local driving range, which also has miniature golf and a par 3 course.

Group A is comprised of students who have mastered the basic skills and rules of golf. They play the par 3 course.

Group B is comprised of the remaining students. They split their time between the driving range, where they work on hitting real golf balls, and the miniature golf, where they work on putting form.
