GolfParc @ Horsham
Neil Plimmer, PGA Professional
GolfParc can be used in ANY environment. I have used it in school halls, playgrounds and fields, leisure centres, the driving range and on and around our putting green. It has allowed me to set up an environment that enables children and adults to play the game of golf. Importantly it is adaptable to the ability of the player. I can make holes longer, shorter, bigger, smaller, easier and harder thus enabling them to enjoy the experience more than they might on a 'real' golf course that more often than not is too long and too difficult! The response from children and adults has always been 'wow' The design and colour of the equipment creates an impact that enables engagement in the learning environment. Feedback from participants is always positive and I firmly believe that Golf Parc not only increases enjoyment and learning but also retention of participants.
Students and GolfParc
Neil Plimmer is using the GolfParc in a 6 week programme with students from a local college as part of their BTec in Sport. Using a games based approach the students have responded really well with the sessions. Following on from the great response from the students who attended the sessions as Horsham Golf Club Neil is now in talks with the college to take the GolfParc equipment on campus to offer a ‘Play Golf’ experience.
At the Club
Neil Plimmer puts the GolfParc to great use at his club. Just by placing some of the equipment on and around the practice area, it completely transforms the environment into a much more engaging place to be for both juniors and adults.
Neil also uses the equipment in his Junior Golf programme which helps young golfers achieve a broad range of skills, beyond simply swinging a club.
Out and About
Neil has taken the equipment into Schools, community centres and universities to help promote the work that he’s doing in junior golf and at his Golf Club.
