Starting New at Golf

What is SNAG®?

SNAG® stands for "Starting New at Golf". It is a FUN game that is EASY to learn and can be played ANYWHERE.

SNAG® contains all the elements of golf but in a modified form. Falling somewhere between miniature golf and regulation golf, SNAG® allows for full shots, pitching, chipping, and putting. It is a proven learning & training tool for entry level golfers.

Any age group can play and it's perfect for inexpensive family fun! The game has its own simplified rules and terminology, SNAGology as we call it, that adds fun to the learning and playing experience. Play indoors or outdoors, at the beach, in the snow, on the grass, or asphalt... it’s portable, so you can make “The World Your Course”! 

SNAG® only has two clubs: the Launcher™ is used to launch, pitch, and chip the ball; like a putter, the Roller™ is used to roll the ball toward the target All shots other than rolling (putting) are played off of a mat and tee called the Launch Pad™. This ensures that the player will have an optimal lie every time.  The target, called a Flagsticky™, also differs from anything else in golf, as it is not a hole with a cup inside but rather an above-ground weighted cylinder covered with a hook material. The SNAG Ball™ is slightly smaller than a tennis ball and is covered with a loop material. Unlike golf, where you finish by putting your ball into the cup, in SNAG®, you finish by sticking your ball to the Flagsticky™. Because of the mobile Launch Pad™ and Flagsticky™, SNAG® is portable and playable just about anywhere.
