Indian Wells Golf Resort has come up with a unique and fun solution that also will help spark more interest in the game. SNAG (Starting New at Golf) is now being offered for team-building events, juniors, and as a way for non-golfers to participate in events without play- ing the course. "We're trying to grow the game and I think it's going to reduce barriers," said Joe Williams, Director of Golf at Indian Wells Golf Resort. "For our resort clientele, we thought it would fit extremely well – especially since we get a lot of beginners and corpo- rate outings." The equipment, which can be set up quickly, is comprised of colorful giant-headed clubs and oversized tennis ball-like golf balls that make it easy for beginners to quickly find suc- cess hitting the ball. The idea of bringing the SNAG equipment occurred at a sales conference where SNAG was featured at an in- troductory dinner event. The SNAG system explains the game much differently than golf pros explain the game, Williams said. SNAG refers to clubs associ- ated with their function – putters are called rollers and irons are launchers. "That makes sense to a beginning golfer," Williams says. "You're going to launch the ball into the air or roll it to the hole." Williams plans to incorpo- rate the SNAG equipment for juniors and corporate events with his teaching staff avail- able for lessons. "Our entire staff is onboard with it," says Williams. "We're going to use it for junior clinics and corporate events and also our regular lessons."
