The purpose of our foundation is to make the game of golf more accessible to individuals with disabilities. We not only work with those that have physical disabilities, but also those suffering from PTSD and TBI’s. Our intended goal is to help them enjoy the game of golf with confidence.
Providing opportunities for people with disabilities to become involved in the game of golf offers them tremendous physical and mental benefits not just by helping them learn or relearn how to hit the ball, but also by involving them in the social aspects of the game.
We are working to not only raise awareness, but to be able to reach as many individuals as we can who want to play golf but have been unable. We want everyone to be able to share in our passion and love for the game of golf.
Our Program Includes the use of SNAG Equipment
Given what we're trying to accomplish with our program, we would have chosen another name for our equipment other than 'SNAG'. Once you realize that SNAG is an acronym for 'Starting New At Golf' it makes sense.
The SNAG® Golf System contains age appropriate equipment and programming to effectively teach the game of golf to people of all ages and ability levels. SNAG® Golf offers the versatility to learn and play in almost any environment you choose.
SNAG® contains all the elements of golf but in a modified form. The game has its own simplified rules and terminology that adds fun to the learning and playing experience. Falling somewhere between miniature golf and regulation golf, SNAG® allows for full shots, pitching, chipping, and putting. The SNAG Ball™ has a limited distance, with the average player launching it a maximum of 50 yards. SNAG® is also a training program for beginners' fun. It's a comprehensive system that has been developed through years of research and field experience. The key is in simplifying the instruction so that it can be an effective transition into the game of golf.
SNAG® Golf is all about having FUN while learning the basics of golf. SNAG® Golf is a player friendly, first touch development program designed for both children and adults. It incorporates developmentally appropriate equipment that will allow golf to be learned and played in non-traditional venues, such as on a soccer field, in a gym, or on the beach. The program 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 new learners wanting to be further involved with golf. SNAG has developed an effective learning system with a manual and curriculum for new learners of all ages.
SNAGs flexibility and equipment has allowed us to introduce the game of golf to just about anyone. It makes the game easy to learn and the transition from SNAG to the range has been so much easier.
