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.
