Par for the course

. January 29, 2013.

New at golf? Well, there’s a program for you. It’s called SNAG (clever acronym, no?) G-Ball, and Ann Arbor is one of only 15 agencies in the US chosen to pilot the program. The National Recreation and Park Association awarded the Huron Hills Golf Course a $12,000 grant to kick-start the program, which was created by NRPA.

G-Ball, basically T-Ball for golfers, is a learning game targeted toward young children. It uses modified equipment to allow faster learning, better technique, and more fun. “A goal of Huron Hills Golf Course is to teach children the game of golf, and the SNAG program fits perfectly with this mission,” said Colin Smith, the Parks and Recreation Services Manager for Ann Arbor.

Huron Hills Golf Course will be the exclusive Midwest location offering SNAG G-Ball this July. For more information, contact Colin Smith at 734-794-6000 or
