EMPOWERING AND INSPIRING GIRLS THROUGH GOLF
We’re all about the FUNDAMENTALS of golf. We pride ourselves on infusing fun and opportunities to be social into their programming to keep girls engaged and enjoying the game. Often this means putting down the 7 iron and having a golf fashion show, or cutting the drills short to make time for a pizza party. After all, golf is a game right?! We take our job of making it fun seriously!
Membership is free, registration is still required to participate in the program. Once registration is complete girls will receive a membership kit (equipped with Girls Golf logoed accessories). Contact Site Director, AnnaLeis Dibert, for more information.
WE CREATE EXPERIENCES THAT HELP GIRLS FALL IN LOVE WITH THE GAME.
Our Girls Only opportunities make learning the game fun, social, and less-intimidating for girls who are just starting out, or want to play with other girls who share their interest in the game.
5 REASONS SPORTS EMPOWER GIRLS FOR LIFE
1. GIRLS BUILD CONFIDENCE:
Girls who play sports have greater levels of self-esteem, self-image and are less likely to use illicit drugs. Confidence comes through developing a sense of teamwork and learning how to set and achieve goals. Golf is the perfect platform for girls because anyone can play!
2. GIRLS FORM FRIENDSHIPS:
Golf is a fantastic way for girls to build lasting relationships with others while experiencing competition in a fun, supportive environment.
3. GIRLS DEVELOP A STRONG WORK ETHIC:
Athletics require work – especially in a game like golf. One study reported 82% of women in executive-level jobs who played organized sports in middle, high or post-secondary school reported that sports helped them with leadership skills, teamwork, discipline and perseverance.
4. GIRLS STRENGTHEN PERSEVERANCE:
And, of course by being involved with sports, girls learn how to keep playing when nothing seems to go right. To succeed in golf, players must continue through bad breaks and their own mistakes, while learning from past experiences – just like in life.
5. GIRLS HAVE ACCESS TO COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS:
Did you know that female college golf scholarships are unused each year? For many girls, the chance to fund or subsidize education is one of golf’s greatest benefits.
SOMETIMES IT’S NOT ABOUT GOLF!
A typical Girls Golf event could include anything from hitting marshmallows out of a bunker, taking a field trip to a professional golf tournament, or hosting a pirate-themed golf competition.
