TEACHING LIFE-SKILLS WITH GOLF

DiG is a platform to grow the golf industry in developing nations.

We start with our teaching program in schools or civic centers, based on having fun learning the basics of golf using SNAG equipment. (Starting New At Golf or “SNAG” is endorsed by Jack Nicklaus and used in over 9000 schools by the 1st Tee…

We add a little fun with DiG Frisbee and DiG Soccer to show how much fun this game can be, all while learning the rules of the game.

Then, we build a 6-hole short-course for training, and later, a 18-hole golf course and recreation center.

The DiG Club

For those interested in progressing more with our programs, we enroll them into our DiG Club which utilizes golf caps with different colors for achievement levels. The ultimate is our Black cap, similar to a black belt in martial arts. This program instills more life-skills like goal setting, leadership, and perseverance.

THE DiG COURSE

Why teach golf to youth if there is no access to a golf course in their area?

After we establish our training program, we organize support to build a specially designed 6-hole “training course” that is short and ready for DiG Soccer, DiG Frisbee, and of course golf.

This short course has multiple tee boxes for all levels of play from young to old, beginners to advanced, and a separate green for DiG Soccer and DiG Frisbee. (grass cut higher to slow down the soccer ball)

Then when demand and funding available, we build an 18-hole regulation course and clubhouse / recreation center for even more community support. This infrastructure provides revenue for sustainability and creates the need for employment in all aspects of golf and course management and recreation.
