BLUE HILL — Middle school students at the Blue Hill Consolidated School are getting introduced to golf this month.

Local golf professional Noah Tapley, who is a consolidated school alum, is teaching a user-friendly form of the sport developed by the SNAG Golf Co.

SNAG stands for “starting new at golf.”

Two PGA Tour professionals, Terry Anton and Wally Armstrong, spent nearly a decade developing the program, which was launched in 2002.
