GOLF XTREME

Golf Xtreme is the golf game and programme for secondary schools that is similar to the golf you see Tiger Woods play, but is actually a completely new game for young teenagers.

Mark delivers Golf Xtreme in such a way that it combines some of the best parts of the traditional sport – hitting balls a long way at different and interesting targets – with various scoring systems created specifically for the group, team games encouraging individual participation and fitness, and vital safety considerations for everyone involved. Golf Xtreme is designed with the 11 to 15 year old in mind – the boy and girl who’s outgrown Tri-Golf.

After many years of experience coaching in schools, Mark has recognised that the young teenager can be difficult to please. Mark is convinced that Golf Xtreme will excite this pupil, lay the foundations of a good golf technique, and keep him/her active and enthused. The overall result is one of the most exciting additions to the school sports scene for a long time.

Equipment

Golf Xtreme equipment has been designed to look and perform like a traditional golf club but is much lighter and child friendly, along with reduced flight balls to ensure maximum safety on school sites with surrounding property and limited space. Marks delivery of the programme is through games and activities that help develop the skills of young people in a fun structure.
