1 Lesson Plan for Teaching a Leisure Activity Lesson Title/Topic: Basic of Golf Jennifer, Mason & Megan Learning Objectives/Outcomes Duration: 9-10:30 By participating fully in this activity, student will be able to: Identify 4 different types of golf clubs: Irons, Wedges and Putters Identify a golf ball and know what the dimples in the golf ball are used for ü Reduces drag ü Allows the ball to be more aerodynamic Identify a Tee and know what it is used for Identify basic components of golf Supplies/Equipment Pictures of: Irons golf club Wedge golf club Putter golf club Wood Club Golf ball ü ü ü A tee is a stand used to support a stationary ball so that the player can strike it The tee is normally used for the first stroke of each hole, this is known as the tee shot Teeing gives consideration advantage to a drive shot Tee Introduction/Warm Up Introduce ourselves Have the students introduce themselves Ice breaker game - Human Knot : Students stand in circle in the center of the room. Each student will reach out with their right arm and ink hands with another person from across the circle. Students will now reach into the circle with their left arm and link hands with a different person from across the circle. Students are now responsible for untangling themselves without releasing hands. Initiative - - Sides : One of the three leaders (Jennifer, Mason or Megan) will call out an No supplies are needed

2 either/or (hamburger or hotdog) combination. The students will stand to the left or right side of the room depending on which either/or the student picked. Summary of Tasks/Action After the introduction/warm up and the icebreaker game, students should be well acquainted with one another. Identify four different types of golf clubs 1. Introduce the Iron golf club and explain its purpose ü An iron is a type of club used in the sport of golf to propel the ball towards the hole. Irons typically have shorter shafts and smaller clubheads than the woods, the head is made of solid iron or steel, and the head's primary feature is a large, flat, angled face, usually scored with grooves. Irons are used in a wide variety of situations, typically from the teeing ground on shorter holes, from the fairway or rough as the player approaches the green, and to extract the ball from hazards, such as bunkers or even shallow water hazards. 2. Introduce the wedge golf club and explain its purpose ü A wedge is a subset of the iron family of golf clubs designed for special use situations. As a class, wedges have the highest lofts, the shortest shafts, and the heaviest clubheads of the irons. These features generally aid the player in making accurate short- distance Iron club Wedge club Putter Wood Golf ball Tee

3 "lob" shots, to get the ball onto the green or out of a hazard or other tricky spot. In addition, wedges are designed with modified soles that aid the player in moving the clubhead through soft lies, such as sand, mud, and thick grass, to extract a ball that is embedded or even buried. 3. Introduce the putter and explain its purpose ü A putter is a club used in the sport of golf to make relatively short and low- speed strokes with the intention of rolling the ball into the hole from a short distance away. It is differentiated from the other clubs (typically irons and woods) by a clubhead with a very flat, low- profile, low- loft striking face, and by other features which are only allowed on putters, such as bent shafts, non- circular grips, and positional guides. ü Putters are generally used from very close distances to the cup, generally on the putting green, though certain courses have fringes and roughs near the green which are also suitable for putting. An essential to all golfers 4. Introduce the wood golf club and explain its purpose ü A wood is a type of club used in the sport of golf. Woods have longer shafts and larger, rounder heads than other club types, and are used to hit the ball longer distances than other types.

4 5. Quiz the students on the different types of golf clubs (hold up a club and ask the group which one it is and what is purpose is: the student to first raise their hand answers the question) ü What golf club would be used to hit long distances? (wood) ü When is a tee used? (first stroke of each hole) ü Which club is used for short distances? (Putter) ü What family is a wedge in? (Iron family) ü Which club usually has a shorter shafts and smaller clubheads? (Iron club) Identify a golf ball and know what the dimples in the golf ball are used for 6. Introduce a regular small white golf ball to the students 7. Ask the students if they know why the ball has small dimples or ruts on its surface 8. Explain to them why the golf ball has dimples (to make it travel through the air faster) Identify a tee and know what it is used for 1. Explain to the students what a tee is used for and the proper way to place it into the ground Identify basic components of Golf Tee Box The tee box, or teeing ground, marks the place where the hole begins. This area has a flat surface to allow golfers a clean tee shot. Most golf courses have more than one set of tee boxes on each hole, marking the beginning point for golfers of varying ability levels. The golfer should tee his ball between two markers located at each tee box. You can place your tee and ball up

5 to two club lengths behind the markers, but not in front of them. Fairway Each fairway measures approximately 30 to 50 yards across and stretches between the tee box and the green. The closely mowed grass makes hitting the ball from the fairway easier than from other areas of the course, so the goal generally is to place the ball in the fairway with your tee shot. Green The green holds the hole. The grass on the green is cut short to allow the ball to roll easily when a golfer is putting. The green has slightly longer grass on its edges, generally referred to as the fringe. Golfers must learn to "read" the green, because the condition of the grass and the contour of the green impacts how the ball will roll toward the hole. For example, if the green is firm and dry, the ball rolls quickly, but on a wet green the ball rolls slower. Rough The rough lines the fairways. It has longer grass than the fairway or green, creating an area from which it is more difficult to hit a ball. Some courses keep the grass at different lengths in different areas of the rough to make play more unpredictable and challenging. Hazards Hazards make play more difficult. Golf courses have two types of hazards: bunkers and water. Bunkers are holes in the ground filled with sand that typically line the fairway or surround the putting green. Water hazards include lakes, ponds, rivers, creeks and even the ocean at coastal courses. When a water hazard sits between the tee box and green, it has yellow stakes around it. If it lines the perimeter of the hole but does not come between the tee box

6 and the green, it has red stakes. Have all student s line up and ask them to identify their name by answering the following question ü You are a small creek what is your name? (Hazard) ü All the holes are located on you what is your name? (Green) ü You are the area in which the grass increase in length, what is your name? (Rough) ü When you are firm and dry, the ball rolls quickly on you, what is your name? (green) ü You stretch between the tee box and the green, what is your name? (Fairway) ü You are the place where the hole begins, what is your name? (Tee box) ü You create an area from which it is more difficult to hit a ball, what is your name? (Rough) ü The main goal of golf is to always place the ball in you, what is your name? (Fairway) ü You are a flat surface to allow golfers a clean tee shot, what is your name? (Tee box) ü You are a hole in the ground filled with sand, what is your name? (Bunker, Hazard) ü You have slightly longer grass on its edges, generally referred to as the fringe, what is your name? (Green)

7 Wrap- up/reflect - Closure Short, verbal, group quiz on the three different types of clubs and what they re used for, why a golf ball has dimples and what is a tee used for Ask students if learning the basics of golf was enjoyable for them Ask what they can do with golf now in their life Ask how they will apply the basics of golf to their everyday life What aspects of golf can be used in everyday life? Adaptations (For Students With Disabilities): For students with cognitive disabilities: show pictures, repetitive information, step- by- step learning process, speak loud and clear when explaining information Safety Considerations Go over directions clearly before taking out any equipment Make sure no student is left out Be sure to proctor the students if and when he or she is holding a golf ball, club or tee Do not let students out of eye sight with a golf ball, club or tee
