Motala Golf Club and Smedsby School have taken part in a pilot program by the Scandinavian Turfgrass and Environment Research Foundation (STERF). The project has been focusing on “a multifunctional golf course's educational use in society”. During the fall of 2017 and spring 2018, students and teachers from grades 1-6 made regular visits to the golf course.

The purpose of their visits was to conduct classes, out of the classroom and in nature, to stimulate learning and provide new experiences. Motala Golf club provided a safe area away from the golfers where teachers could conduct lessons and explore the environment
