GIRLS’ golf is about to get rocking in Worcestershire with the launch of an inspirational campaign to attract new players.
Girls Golf Rocks offers free tasters, followed by coaching courses for girls aged five to 18. The aim is to have fun, learn a new sport, get active and play alongside friends.
There will be four clubs involved in Girls Golf Rocks in Worcestershire for 2019. They will all offer free tasters, followed by six one-hour coaching sessions over six weeks.
Redditch Golf Club is one of the host clubs and its taster session will take place on Wednesday, May 22 between 6-8pm before the coaching is held from Wednesday, June 5 between 5.30-6.30pm. Bookings can be made by visiting www.girlsgolfrocks.org/worcestershire.
At the taster sessions the newcomers will 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.
Equipment will be provided and there will be plenty of time to chat and make new friends over refreshments. Girls can wear what they like as long as it is comfortable and keeps them warm. Trainers are fine.
Girls who enjoy the taster can go on to join a beginner coaching group. They will join a group of other girls and learn the basics during six weekly, one-hour sessions.
They will 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.
They will also receive a golf club and goody bag including a Girls Golf Rocks branded polo shirt and water bottle to help them continue to play golf.
