Following the success of The Big Swing 2011 where 551 children descended on Canford
Magna Golf Academy to take part in a Countywide Tri-Golf Festival, we have now released
the date for The Big Swing 2012.
Canford Park will again host the event, where the target has been set to beat last
year’s total of 551 Year 3/4 children from schools all across the county to take
part in what will be another fantastic day for School Sport in Dorset.
The top 4 teams from this event will be eligible to take part in a county final in
at the School Olympics day to coincide with the Olympic Torch arrival.
In the lead up to the event, PGA Professional Darren Stratman is available to organise
taster sessions for Year 3/4 children to give them an introduction to the basics
and chance to play a few of the 8 games that take place at The Big Swing.
Entry forms have now been released so if you would like to get your school involved
and get your taster sessions organised please contact Darren on 07717 152330 or email:
For all other enquiries or if you would like to sponsor the event please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event has been made possible by The Golf Foundation as part of their ‘Golf
Roots’ initiative, however for us to be able to give the children a day to remember
we need your support.
We hope your school can join us for what is set to be a great day!
