A SESSION will take place at Droitwich’s Gaudet Luce Golf Club next Saturday to get more girls into the sport.
Girls Golf Rocks between 1pm and 2pm will feature a free taster session, followed by coaching courses for girls aged between five and 18.
The courses will consist of six one-hour coaching sessions.
The aim is to get girls to have fun, learn a new sport, get active an play alongside friends.
At the taster sessions the newcomers will get together with other beginner girls to relax and play fun games.
PGA professional coaches will lead the activities and Girls Golf Rocks Ambassadors from local clubs and the county girls’ squad will be on hand to help and encourage.
Equipment will be provided and there will be plenty of time to chat and make new friends over refreshments.
Girls can wear what they like as long as it’s comfy and keeps them warm. Trainers are fine for footwear.
Girls who enjoy the taster can go on to join a beginner coaching group.
They will join a group of other girls and learn the basics during six weekly, one-hour sessions.
They will also have the chance to get out on the golf course on the sixth week and play in a team alongside the Girls Golf Rocks ambassadors.
They will also receive a golf club and goody bag including a Girls Golf Rocks branded polo shirt and water bottle to help them continue to play golf.
Jenny Hartley, Worcestershire & Herefordshire County Junior Chair, said: “We are very excited that Girls Golf Rocks is coming to Worcestershire this year and the County Junior Committee is delighted to be involved. It is an excellent way to promote the wonderful game of golf.
“Encouraging new girls into the project will be young golfing Ambassadors who, through their own experiences, will show the many opportunities there are for girls to enjoy golf.
“Making new friends, learning new skills, and, above all, having fun are all benefits of golf club membership and we look forward to growing the game in Worcestershire through Girls Golf Rocks.”
Girls Golf Rocks is run jointly by England Golf and the Golf Foundation and it’s bigger and better than ever in 2019.
Worcestershire is one of 26 counties taking part this year. That’s up by five on 2018 when over 1600 girls enjoyed a taste of golf, with many going on to coaching sessions.
