Back by Popular Demand: Scottish Golf’s Virtual GolfSixes returns for a second week

Posted on 30/03/2020

Last week, we wanted to play our part in supporting children and families across the country after the closure of all schools and nurseries across Scotland.

Truth be told, we had no idea whether it would work or not but with over 350 Scottish Golf Virtual GolfSixes Challenge entries, we have been overwhelmed by the response!

Following the hugely successful first week, we are delighted to announce that the challenge will be running for a second week from Monday 30 March to Saturday 4 April.

What is the Scottish Golf Virtual GolfSixes Challenge? 

This week, we will have a new series of challenge and will reveal one assignment at 10am each day. You can submit your work by tagging @ScottishGolf on Twitter or by dropping us a message on Facebook with a picture of your completed masterpiece.

Our panel of expert judges will then pick the best submissions from each day as winners. 

Day 1 (Monday 30 March): Design your own golf related emoji.

Today, you have been tasked with designing your own golf related emoji. Get your child to design an eye-catching emoji that is related to golf – think about making it stand out from the crowd.

Our expert team of judges have given the following hints and tips on what might make for a great course logo:

  • Use any drawing tools you like – pens, pencils, crayons etc 
  • Make sure that your emoji is cool and golf related
  • Ensure your emoji is colourful 
  • Once you’ve created your logo, tag @ScottishGolf on Twitter or message us on Facebook to be in with a chance of winning some great goodies!

Day 2 (Tuesday 31 March): Create a freestanding paper or cardboard tower that holds your golf ball on it

Scotland has a long tradition of expertise, innovation and achievement in Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) – and it’s an integral part of our future economic and social development.

With this in mind, today we are tasking the future STEM heroes of Scotland with creating the tallest freestanding tower. And of course, we’ve included a golf twist!

Your child’s tower can be made out of paper or cardboard, must be freestanding and the final criteria is that it must be able to hold a golf ball.

Our expert team of judges have given the following hints and tips on what you will need to take part in today’s challenge:

  • Using either paper or cardboard, you need to create a freestanding tower capable of holding a golf ball
  • You might want to make your tower colourful so it stands out in the skyline around your golf club that you have been working on over the past two weeks
  • Once you’ve created your tower, don’t forget to tag @ScottishGolf on Twitter or message us on Facebook with a picture of your tower to be in with a chance of winning some great goodies!

Day 3 (Wednesday 1 April) Solve this brain tee-aser!

Today, we are challenging you to solve the puzzle pictured above. The rules are simple, the task not so much!

First, we would like you to grab a set of golf tees (or pencils if you do not have these) – you will need 16 in total. Next we want you to lay them out in the same way as the photo.

The next part of the puzzle is to remove only 4 tees/pencils to leave only 4 triangles that are all touching and the same size!

Parents, you can either send us a video of your child completing the task or a picture of the completed set of 4 triangles, it’s up to you! To submit your entry, simply tag @ScottishGolf on Twitter or message us with your completed puzzle on Facebook.

Day 4 (Thursday 2 April) Design your own golf outfit

Today you have been tasked with designing your own golf outfit. There are no dress codes and you can be as creative as you like! It’s time to get your child to design an eye-catching golf outfit that will catch the eye of other golfers on the course.

Our expert team of judges have given the following hints and tips on what might make for a great course logo:

  • Use any creative tools you like – pens, pencils, crayons etc 
  • Make sure that your uniform cool and golf related
  • Ensure your uniform is colourful  
  • Once you’ve created your logo, tag @ScottishGolf on Twitter or message us on Facebook to be in with a chance of winning some great goodies!

Day 5 (Friday 3 April) Create your own mini golf course!

It’s Friday and today we have something a little bit different for you and your children to get involved in.

Today, we are tasking you with setting up your own mini golf course – you can set up anywhere between 1 and 18 holes at home and we want to see some challenging holes that would test the best putters in the world.

Our expert team of judges have given the following hints and tips on what might make for a great course logo:

  • Use any creative tools you like to set up your mini golf course
  • Make sure that your holes are challenging!
  • You can set up anywhere between 1 and 18 holes 
  • Once you’ve created your logo, tag @ScottishGolf on Twitter or message us on Facebook to be in with a chance of winning some great goodies!
