Girls Golf Rock
Girls Golf Rocks is all about attracting beginners to have fun, learn a new sport, get active and play alongside friends – with no pressure. Girl golfers from county squads will act as ambassadors to share their enjoyment and inspire other girls, aged five to 18.
The campaign comes to Norfolk and Searles in 2018
We are offering a free taster session on 15th April, supported by the squad players. This will be followed by five-week structured coaching programmes provided by PGA professional Ray Stocker, with the county girl players mentoring the newcomers. All the girls who complete the coaching programme will be fitted with a free seven iron to help them continue to play.
The finale will be a fun par three competition on 1st May when new young golfers can enjoy playing alongside their mentors.
Girls Golf Rocks is a joint project run by England Golf and the Golf Foundation with the support of county associations and sports partnerships.
Lauren Spray, the England Golf Women & Girls’ Participation Manager, said: “Girls Golf Rocks sets out to focus on the fun, social and friendship aspects of golf rather than just the playing and coaching side and we’ve had brilliant success.
Alex Saunders of Bristol and Clifton Golf Club is one of the new ambassadors in Gloucestershire. The 20-year-old said: "I have loved playing golf since the age of 11 and during that time I have met some amazing people and made some incredible friends. Golf is really fun sport and I’m so glad I play."
