Player development scheme SNAG Golf has signed an agreement to partner with the American Camp Association.

SNAG (Starting New at Golf) is a modified form of the game designed for beginners, and is the skills acquisition programme used by the World Golf Foundation's First Tee scheme. It uses modified equipment allowing golf to be taught at non-traditional venues, such as sports fields, gyms and beaches.

SNAG equipment will be offered at all ACA facilities across the United States, and five per cent of all sales of SNAG equipment on the ACA website will support 'Send a Child to Camp' – a programme designed to raise money to send underprivileged children to camp – and 'Explore 30', a camp reading programme promoting 30 minutes of reading each day.

“We admire the ACA’s commitment to bringing the game of golf to thousands of young people who attend camps every summer and we look forward to a long term partnership, tapping an audience of future golfers,” said Terry Anton, CEO and owner of SNAG Golf.

SNAG will reach more than five million children and adults at approximately 2,700 ACA camps throughout the US each year.
