THE LADIES GOLF CLUB SPONSORS GIRLS GOLF
The Ladies Golf Club is proud to sponsor the Girls Golf Program. In 2016 we were the first in Canada to join this LPGA program for young girls. The Ladies Golf Club has committed to continue our sponsorship if funds are available. Over thirty participants took advantage of this opportunity the first year and we have seen continued growth since then. This program will ensure that future generations of young girls will become avid golfers. It is designed to familiarize the girls with the golf course, equipment, etiquette and some instruction. Fun and socializing is also a major component if the days’ activities.
According to the LPGA, “It’s our philosophy that everyone should learn the FUNdamentals of the game of 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 pirate-themed golf competition. Yep, that’s right…pirates! Creativity is Queen when it comes to Girls Golf and we’re not afraid to think outside the box.” (From website www.girlsgolf.org)
