Girls Golf Rocks is all about giving girls the opportunity to try a new sport. With the help of the Bedfordshire county girl players acting as ambassadors, 4 clubs within the County offered a fantastic experience for girls to sample the game, meet new friends and enjoy a new sport.
There were 4 FREE taster days at Leighton Buzzard, Beadlow Manor, Tilsworth and The Bedford Golf Clubs back in April. The taster events were targeted at girls aged 5-18 and lasted up to 2 hours with refreshments included! Equipment was free to use on the day, all the girls needed to do was turn up in comfy clothing and some flat soled shoes to enjoy the fun. This year we had 72 girls attend the taster events!
After the taster event a 5 week coaching course was scheduled. This was a chance for the girls to learn a bit more about golf, to make new friends with the ambassadors and receive instruction from a PGA qualified coach. They also received a custom fitted 7 iron from US Kids all for only £14!
Included in the price and once the 5 week coaching course was completed, the girls were invited to a par 3 festival of golf. This is where all the girls come together to put their new skills in action and share their experiences of Girls Golf Rocks! !
The Par 3 event was held jointly with Buckinghamshire. The event was held at Abbey Hill G.C, near Milton Keynes. The girls were split into 5 teams of 4 and enjoyed a Texas Scramble format over 9 holes. It was great to see the girls working together as a team and putting their new skills into practice on a golf course. Take a look below at some of the girls in action!
Come and join the fun and learn to play golf in a way that ROCKS!
