Snag Golf will once again be at­tend­ing the NZ PGA Open at The Hills in Queen­stown later this month. Lo­cated at the 19th hole, SNAG with all it’s bright coloured tar­gets, vel­cro balls and over­sized clubs will be pro­vid­ing in­ter­ac­tive and fun ac­tiv­i­ties for the whole fam­ily to play. Not only will you be able to play on the SNAG Golf Course and SNAG Driv­ing Range but they will be run­ning a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties through­out the day like a SNAG Hole in one com­pe­ti­tion, The SNAG Long­est Drive and of course the best score for the day on the SNAG Golf Course. You will be asked for a gold coin do­na­tion to play which will go di­rectly to­wards sup­port­ing Cure Kids which is one of the tour­na­ment char­i­ties. SNAG Golf is a mod­i­fied ver­sion of golf that in­tro­duces begin­ners to the game in a way that is fun, eas­ier to learn and can be played al­most any­where. SNAG’s mis­sion is to give ev­ery kiwi kid the op­por­tu­nity to play golf and they are off to a great start, with over 5000 chil­dren in schools this year al­ready booked to re­ceive the SNAG Pro­gramme. So come on Cen­tral Otago, get down and give SNAG a go, then you can say " Yeah, I played at The Hills". From scarcely be­ing known about, to hav­ing Sir Bob Charles on board as Pa­tron, and now a pres­ence at the NZPGA for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year, the jour­ney of SNAG golf in New Zealand is only just be­gin­ning. With two passionate ‘like-minded peo­ple’ be­hind the busi­ness in David Thompson and Todd Statham and a sim­ple phi­los­o­phy of pro­mot­ing golf to the younger gen­er­a­tion New Zealan­ders, us­ing mod­i­fied more ap­pro­pri­ate equip­ment that can be set up and used in many en­vi­rons, SNAG Golf is not only easy to learn, it is also easy to teach, and FUN to play! SNAG con­tains all the el­e­ments of golf but in a mod­i­fied form and has been devel­oped through years of re­search and field ex­pe­ri­ence. SNAG is a player friendly, first touch devel­op­ment pro­gramme de­signed for all. It in­cor­po­rates de­vel­op­men­tally ap­pro­pri­ate equip­ment that will al­low golf to be learned and played in non­tra­di­tional venues, such as on a soc­cer field, in a gym, or on the beach. The pro­gramme builds on strong fun­da­men­tals of the dif­fer­ent strokes and swings and de­vel­ops play­ing abil­ity quickly and ef­fec­tively. SNAG can be taught and played al­most any­where with im­me­di­ate, pos­i­tive re­sults. This im­me­di­ate success keeps begin­ners want­ing to be in­volved with golf. Ex­pect to hear more about Snag Golf in the fu­ture! And to read about a CHAMP who had their be­gin­nings in this sport! SNAG® Golf (‘Start­ing New At Golf’), a proven first touch player devel­op­ment pro­gram de­signed for new learn­ers of all ages, was the win­ner of the In­ter­na­tional Net­work of Golf (ING) 29th In­dus­try Hon­ours Awards at the PGA Mer­chan­dise Show held in Or­lando, USA last week. SNAG Golf cap­tured the Player Devel­op­ment Award, and was cho­sen over the PGA’s Tee It For­ward and PGA Pro­fes­sional Rick Grayson. Called by some the "Academy Awards of the Golf In­dus­try," the ING In­dus­try Hon­ours pro­gram recog­niSes out­stand­ing achieve­ment in the golf busi­ness.
