Golf Program Started in Elementary PE

Students at Wilson Elementary learn how to play golf.

Elementary students in Ottumwa are learning a new sport in their physical education classes.

The Ottumwa Country Club, in cooperation with the district elementary PE department, is piloting a Golf in Schools program called S.N.A.G. (Start New at Golf). From December through March, elementary students in grades 2-5 will have several sessions with a golf professional, followed by additional instruction from their teacher. The club is providing equipment to the schools for this instruction.
