Girls Golf Rocks
Girls Golf Rocks encourages girls to learn and play golf in a fun and friendly way that rocks!
It’s for girls aged 5-18 and it’s going to get bigger and better in 2019.
Girls Golf Rocks will run in 26 counties across England this year, offering free taster sessions, girls-only coaching courses and the chance to get out and play.
In 2018, we involved 21 counties and over 1600 girls enjoyed a taste of golf, with many going on to coaching sessions.
The new counties for 2019 are: Cornwall, Hampshire, Lancashire, Lincolnshire and Worcestershire.
They join Berkshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cumbria, Cheshire, Durham, Dorset, Essex, Gloucestershire, Kent, Leicestershire, Norfolk, Northumberland, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Staffordshire, Surrey, Sussex, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Yorkshire.
You will be able to view 2019 dates and book your place from April.
In the meantime, here’s what will be on offer.
Free Taster Session
A great way to find out if golf is the game for you.
You’ll 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 you. Any equipment you need will be provided. You’ll also have plenty of time to chat and make new friends over refreshments.
You can wear what you like as long as it’s comfy and keeps you warm. Trainers are fine for footwear.
If you enjoy yourself then you can come and join us for girls-only group coaching.
Beginner Coaching Groups
You’ll join a group of other girls and learn the basics during six weekly, one-hour sessions. You’ll 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.
You will also receive a US Kids iron and goodie pack to help you continue to play golf.
Girls Golf Rocks is a joint programme run by England Golf and the Golf Foundation with the support of county associations.
