Par Level: A less intensive and fun based introduction to golf through physical activities, golf instruction and progressive on-course activities to include SNAG Golf, FootGolf and regular golf. This is the best option for younger golfers or those who are newer to the game and want to learn with friends.

They will be supervised on the course but in more of a coaching atmosphere than at the Par level.
