BOURNE is getting active, partly thanks to a new scheme that will see school pupils as well as members of the community taking part in a fun form of golf.

SNAG golf falls somewhere between miniature golf and regulation golf, allowing for full shots, pitching, chipping and putting.

Now coach Darren Game is set to get many members of the community playing through Bourne Westfield Primary Academy’s community project, Bourne Active.

Darren said: “SNAG golf was chosen as the activity because it can be enjoyed by anybody and can be set up and used anywhere.

Sports teachers in Bourne will be taught to play and coach SNAG golf and training will then be rolled out to Year 6 pupils in the area, with a golf festival planned at Bourne Grammar School to ease the transition to big school.

Sessions will also be run at the Willoughby School in Bourne, at local care homes, with help from Bourne Westfield Primary Academy Year 6 pupils, and at local scout and guiding groups.

There will also be SNAG golf sessions on Tuesdays during the summer holidays, also funded by the project, to be held at Bourne Westfield, and open to all children in the community.
