The Programme Begins with SNAG
SNAG (Starting New at Golf) is an innovative “First Touch” golf teaching product, designed to promote golf at a beginner level through complete development by providing highly enjoyable and easily accessible equipment.
Sally has endorsed SNAG as the best way to teach golf to beginners of all ages. SNAG can be found at all Little Golf Trust activities.
A huge thank you to our sponsors of the Little Golf Trust, without whose support this programme would not be a success. We are proud to announce what we are now in partnership with the LPGA Foundation.
The NLC relies on funds from the proceeds of the National Lottery. The Lotteries Act guides the way in which NLC funding may be allocated. The intention of NLC funding is to make a difference to the lives of all South Africans, especially those more vulnerable and to improve the sustainability of the beneficiary organisations. Available funds are distributed to registered and qualifying non-profit organisations in the fields of charities; arts, culture and national heritage; and sport and recreation. By placing its emphasis on areas of greatest need and potential, the NLC contributes to South Africa’s development.
