"The almostGOLF ball has been a perfect item for our after school golf programs as well as junior golf days.  It allows us to offer programs in small confined areas, where in the past would have been impossible.  The almostGOLF ball is a great tool for creating unique golfer development programs."

Jeff Jones: Junior Golf Success Program

I have had a chance to use the almostGOLF ball for the last 10 weeks of my junior golf camp and the response from the players and the professional staff has been phenomenal. The durability and playability are great and the ball is sure to be at the top of our list of products we recommend for all of our junior golfers.  As a recipient of a PGA Growth of the Game grant, we will be using the ball in a number of local schools for our First Step to the 1st Tee Program.

BRINGING GOLF TO SCHOOLS AND CORPORATE CAMPUSES: Scott Kmiec, Executive director of the New Jersey PGA discusses how the almostGolf ball has opened up a whole new world of proactive golf education by allowing PGA Professionals to reach out and take golf instruction off the course and to hundreds of schools and corporate campuses across the state. This new level of convenience has made it possible to expose golf to thousands of new golfers who would normally not have been able to try the great game of golf.

Felix Rabanal: PGA Grow The Game Coordinator

The use of the almostGOLF ball has allowed us to reach inner city school kids in a way we never expected. It has opened our eyes to a new doorway for introducing the game of golf.  The kids in our 23 youth center programs around Albuquerque, NM are more interested in learning golf than kids who are exposed to golf courses and traditional programs. The programs built around the almostGOLF ball have had significant impact in growing the game and serving city youth center programs.

CREATING TRANSITIONS TO THE GOLF COURSE: In 2005 we first met Phil Mickelson Sr, at the PGA show in Orlando FL and talked about his San Diego Junior Golf Programs. In 2007 he was gracious enough to come to one of our shoots and tell us about how he uses the almostGolf ball to migrate his junior students from his in-school golf programs to the golf course as well as how this ball could have saved a lot of broken windows back when his son was learning to be a champion golfer in their legendary backyard.

CAROLYN BARNETT HOWE

 

GROWING IN-SCHOOL GOLF PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT WISCONSIN: Carolyn and her husband Steve were one of the earliest PGA pros to begin taking the almostGolf ball into schools. To date they are in over 30 schools with dramatic results. Carolyn has proven that by eliminating all the traditional barriers to entry of time, money and travel, and bringing the fun of golf to the students is the fastest, least expensive and most tractionable way to grow the game of golf. Just one example is where they had one school where they couldn't get a single girl to come out and try golf. Today, in just four years, they have 60 girls in the program.

ALEX GALVAN

 

CROSS PURPOSING ON-CAMPUS PLAYING FIELDS TO EXPAND GOLF PROGRAMS: As Alex Galvan started his junior golf summer camps on the campus of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, he needed more than his 30x40 yard short game area with synthetic green. Thanks to the almostGolf ball he was able to use the adjacent softball field as a driving range/course. By cross purposing the playing field, they were able to expand their program from half a day to a full day program and the kids really responded.
