Local golf instructor Valerie Beebe and Jennifer Greggain are offering a program for children this fall, one they believe is unique. Working as a pilot project out of the Cheam Leisure Centre,  the program is dubbed SNAG, short for Starting New at Golf.

Beebe describes it as a fun filled and affordable way for children to learn the game indoors. When good weather shows up, they can transfer their learned skills to a small outdoors course.

“We aim to teach valuable life lessons including self confidence, integrity, and respect,” she added. “The children will hopefully make new friendships and learn that golf is a timeless physical activity.”

Get more information on the new program by emailing Beebe at valerie.2000@shaw.ca.

Cheam Centre program coordinator Codie Hindle can be reached by email at chindle@aquaticpro.com.
