The Golf Foundation is a national charity that creates life changing opportunities for young people. With a strong focus on teaching transferable life skills through its golf programmes, the Foundation has shared 6 ideas to help families make the most of the ‘lock down’ and restriction to home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Adapted from the Foundation’s new Unleash your Drive life skills workshop, these steps all encourage family involvement, in fun games which promote creativity, reflection and confidence – always practising golf, while learning some valuable skills that are transferable to everyday life.

You will also see the hashtag #GolfatHome on social media created by The R&A, in which video clips and pictures are welcome of your great home practice scenarios.

The Golf Foundation supports the Sport England #StayInWorkOut movement – there are some great ideas for fun activities at www.stayinworkout.org

For all PGA Coaches, teachers and junior volunteers: if you would like to join an online training workshop on learning more about how to apply the mental toughness principles described in this article, please contact the Golf Foundation at: marketing@golf-foundation.org

Stay safe, enjoy your golf at home: when we can get back to the fairways later on there will be no stopping us!
