In addition to introducing and building golf skills, the program’s curriculum includes a seamless health and wellness component and also teaches students values such as sportsmanship, honesty, integrity, respect, confidence and courtesy. The new schools join 40 that implemented the program eight years ago. This effort is made possible through a collaboration with The First Tee of Greater San Antonio.
