TIP OF THE MONTH
Generating new players can seem like a huge feat. For many non-golfers, the barrier for keeping
them from the game is that it is too intimidating… and too hard. A way to make learning the funda-
mentals of golf fun and easy for beginners is to use a non-traditional approach to teaching through
non-traditional equipment. The SNAG (Starting New At Golf) equipment is specifically designed to
make the first steps easier for new players. Hitting an oversized, soft golf ball with a large plastic
club head makes learning swing fundamentals easier and more fun. Also, an added benefit of using
SNAG equipment with your new players is that it is 100% portable: no need to put your brand new golfers on the range next to
your scratch membership. Taking new players to a secure, private area on the course and teaching them the game can be much
more welcoming and fun to ensure they continue to develop their love for the game, and return as your customer. For more
