Making the transition to the golf course.
For the next eight weeks SBCUSD students will be making the transition from playground golfers to OGs (On-course Golfers). The CAPS GOLF program will meet twice a week at Shandin Hills GC giving the kids a chance to find their golf games.
Ben Hogan famously said that “the secret is in the dirt.” Though he never explained what that exactly meant, most believe he was referring to practice. The more you practice, the better you get. In order to figure out how to hit a golf ball consistently, you have to hit a lot of golf balls.
This summer CAPS GOLF students will have the opportunity to hit as many as they want.
Complete young golfers.
Free golf comes with responsibilities. CAPS GOLF students know that golf is a game of honor and they have to hold themselves to a higher standard of behavior at the golf course.
This summer students will spend the time between golf swings learning more about the quirks and customs of playing golf. They will learn the rules—or at least the imortant ones—and golf etiquette. By the time they return to school next August, they will know how to work their way around the golf course. The goal is to help them develop into complete young golfers capable of playing comfortably on any course and with any other golfer in the country.
