ACTIVITY 2: UNLOCK THE LEVELS

1) GASP for proper set up

2) Look at your target and line up the shot – if the green slopes down to the pin make sure you hit the ball softer

3) Swing back and follow through the ball

“Unlock the Levels” is one of our favorite putting activities. The objective is simple: complete the five progressive putts to win. You must complete each level in order and cannot progress to the next level until you achieve each putt.

Start at level 1 and work your way up until level 5. See who can finish in the least amount of strokes and vary the distances to make it more or less challenging.

ACTIVITY 3: NAME THE PARTS OF THE COURSE

ACTIVITY 4: STEAM TIME

  Science: Click here to discover how the different areas of a hole impact how the ball moves.
   
  Technology: Imagine and draw a futuristic piece of equipment that can help you play golf. A few of our ideas are rocket powered clubs, laser guided balls, and self-driving carts.
   
  Engineering: Design your own golf hole using the ten items listed above. Think about what shape you want your hole to be, how long it is, and how the penalty areas will make it challenging.
   
  Art: Draw a picture of a golf scene and color it.  Two of our favorites are the view from a tee box before we drive and seeing the ball in the cup after finishing a hole. Click here for a coloring template.
   
  Math: Add up the score card below to find your total round score. BONUS QUESTION – did you come under or over par?

Golf etiquette is about respect for the course, other players, and the rules of the game.

Two ways to demonstrate sportsmanship when playing golf are:

1) Give encouragement to others

2) Be quiet and still when others take a shot

Can you list two ways you can practice sportsmanship at home?

 

ACTIVITY 5: SUDOKU WORKSHEET
