Girls getting into the swing of golf

GIRLS Golf Rocks will be back for 2019 – with great plans to involve even more girls and spread the recruitment programme further across the country.

Worcestershire is one of five counties joining the successful programme for 2019 – alongside Cornwall, Hampshire, Lancashire and Lincolnshire – taking the total to 26 including Warwickshire.

Clubs in these counties will offer free taster sessions, starting in May, followed by coaching courses with PGA professionals. Club and county girl players will again be trained as ambassadors to inspire the new girls coming into the game.

In 2018 more than 1,650 girls attended Girls Golf Rocks taster sessions and 1,200 enjoyed it so much they went on to take coaching courses with PGA professionals.

Girls Golf Rocks is a joint programme from England Golf and the Golf Foundation, supported by the women’s county associations. It aims to increase the number of girl players from an average of just two per club.
