 I am also a new golfer and cannot emphasize enough how important stretching is for me.  I had a similar, albeit less sever from your description, rib injury after hitting a few fat shots on a mat. It was about a week before I got better.  About two months after that I went to the range and started swinging without stretching.  Before long I had another sore rib.  The pain never got above a 1-2, but it was always there.  Taking it easy seemed to work and I was back to...
 Oh I am having fun and enjoying the process.  I do want to get better (started five months ago).
Sadly, mine is legit.
Yesterday I shot a 107, which is pretty bad. I got sucked into honey do hell the day before and was pretty sore, especially my back, and just wasn't making good swings for the most part. My 3W off the tee was slicing like a driver and that is normally a straight shot for me. I also fatted a good number of shots, which makes sense due to my back. If I don't make a good body turn I hit way behind the ball, and something bad will happen.... Specifically, ther were three OB...
BOOM!   I wonder how Freddie is feeling right now.
 Yep.  Tree limbs are pretty long odds, in my short experience with this game.  I am playing 18 on Sunday. I hope to play smarter.
 Agree 100%, it was smooth terrain and clear to the green.  I just needed it to get it out there.  Plus it is August in Texas and if you get off the fairway the ground can be more like concrete sometimes....
CANNOT be overestimated.  I have been working on ball striking so much I figured it would be much easier when I started hitting the ball consistently better, and I am doing that now, but my score isn't changing much.   I was thinking about my crappy 9 hole outing the morning (shot a 59) and I realized that every bad "blow up" hole started with me taking a shot that I knew I should not have tried to make. For example, hitting under a canopy of trees to a green about 75...
All I know is I absolutely, positively HATE hitting off mats.  It seems every other time I do it I end up getting banged up from a funky swing.   Good grass, cold drinks, friendly staff, and clean facilities goes a long way.  Oh and decent range balls.
Sign them up for intensive before and after school coaching during the week and all day sessions on Saturday, get the best pro you can afford and have him or her hyper-analyze every aspect of their swing.  Demand progress each and every day, with little reinforcement other than "You'll thank me when you're 30."   I kid, I kid (no pun intended).   Keep it light, keep it fun, and if you are dealing with younger kids, keep the outings short- you don't want them getting...
