Start New at Golf (SNAG)

Snag Golf target

Westmeath Sports Partnership facilitates a Start New at Golf Programme (SNAG) for adults with intellectual disabilities.

This programme  effectively and simply teaches the game of golf to people of all ages and ability levels.

The SNAG Programme is implemented by Murphy Sweeney Golf School. The course is a beginners golf programme, that contains all the elements of golf, but in a modified form, creating a positive introduction to the sport through the implementation of a fun, safe and structured programme.

The programme works towards enhancing participants balance, hand-eye coordination and strength while learning the skills of a new sport.

Below you will see some pictures from people who enjoyed SNAG in Athlone in 2019.
