Designed by PGA of America Golf Professionals to teach the game of golf to students of all ages, the goal is to highlight the positive benefits, both physically and mentally, that golf provides. The foundation provides all equipment necessary and a PGA Professional to aid the program, keeping it free of cost for participants. There are typically five sessions, each covering a different aspect of the game to the students. Since 2018, PGA REACH Philadelphia partnered with the Golf Association of Philadelphia have provided the program to over 65 schools in the region. 

Bob Hennefer, PGA, will be the lead instructor working with the schools.

I’m thrilled to be able to offer Golf in Schools in the Cherry Hill Elementary Schools,” says Hennefer. “Having grown up here, and now all three of my children going through the Elementary School system as well, it means a lot. It will be a great program, that all elementary school students in Cherry Hill will benefit from and enjoy!”
