Girls Golf Rocks has inspired over 220 girls to start playing in Essex – and their numbers are set to grow even more this year.
Working with England Golf and the Golf Foundation, we are hoping to attract more girl golfers and we’re back with eight free taster sessions this April, followed by coaching courses and Girls Golf Rocks on Tour – a series of playing days to encourage new girl golfers to get out on the course and make new friends.
Have a go and see if Golf ‘rocks’ you – these girls loved it…
The newcomers at the taster sessions are supported by girl Ambassadors, whose encouragement for the newcomers helped to make the project such a success in 2017.
For information or to book your place please call the host club.

GIRLS ONLY BEGINNER COACHING COURSESGirls only group coaching classes will start in April and May at each of the golf clubs hosting taster sessions, and there will be the opportunity to receive GGR coaching through to the October 2018 school half-term holiday.
The classes will cost just £5 a week and will run for the school term. For girls signing up and completing a course, they get to keep a fitted 7-iron, to help them play and practise – so no need to buy any equipment up-front!
Please contact the club directly for more information or book online here.

So Let’s hear it from two of our Ambassadors…
Izzy Lush, from the Essex girls’ squad, is starting her fourth year as an Ambassador and said: “It’s been so beneficial to me as a student, it looks amazing on a CV as it’s given me so many amazing opportunities. It’s helped me grow and understand what I want to do when I get older. I love helping the girls and getting stuck in, you get so much out of it, like it makes you feel great about what you do and I’m proud of myself and the girls alongside me.”
Abigail March, 14, is a member at Colne Valley and she said: “I enjoy golf because it is challenging and you get to meet a lot of new people. I think other girls should play because it is a fun sport that you can make a lot of friends through it. I really enjoy being a Girls Golf Rocks ambassador because I enjoy helping girls get into golf”
