The beauty of Tri-Golf is that it can be played anywhere in large groups. Festivals can be organised at any sports centre or large indoor venue. Bringing together teams of pupils from a number of schools festivals can also be used to enhance the Tri-Golf programmes taking place in the individual schools.
A typical festival will involve teams of ten children from around ten different schools or, on a smaller scale, five classes from five schools. A teacher/parent can set up ten putting, chipping and hitting challenges in a sportshall (circuit-style) and the teams of children work their way from station to station. With normally a leader in charge of each station, the activities are centrally timed and team points are awarded, all recorded on each team’s scorecard.
The activities are designed so that a large number of children can be accommodated in a small space and every child is able to participate in every event.
