The pupils are on their way now, this is the second level and is a natural progression in terms of content and general golf knowledge. The Orange Level completes the basic levels of the programmes giving a broad introduction to some of the essential information the new player needs.

The Red and Orange teaching sessions are perfect for using with traditional golf or any soft-golf equipment. the preferred 1st touch equipment is SNAG (Start New at Golf), simply because, in our opinion, it's far more advanced than anything else on the market and a coach can actually teach the swing fundamentals with it.

These two levels can be coached by any UKSCC Level 1 Coach or equivalent, full support and SNAG training is available.

Once again, there are some more simple puzzles and a quiz for the pupils to have a go at. This increases their levels of golf knowledge and help the coach understand just how much information they are retaining.

 

 

 

Each week, there's a skills challenge to help focus the pupils mind on each shot. This also gets them used to treating each stroke individually and helps them grasp the understanding that every shot is important. The level is completed when the quiz is marked and all challenges completed, the pupil then receives their well earned certificate of achievement with a simple pass, merit or much coveted distinction.
