Girls’ Golf is Rocking into 2018

Girls Golf Rocks is back for 2018 – with great plans to involve even more girls and spread the recruitment project further across the country.

This year it’s running in 21 counties with Berkshire, Northumberland, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Sussex and Warwickshire joining the campaign.

Girls Golf Rocks will also be backed by Facebook advertising to help spread the message that golf is fun, friendly and great for girls.

Last year over 860 girls attended Girls Golf Rocks taster sessions and 730 enjoyed it so much they went on to take a coaching course with PGA professionals. The newcomers are supported by girls from county squads who act as ambassadors.

This year, Girls Golf Rocks will also be going ‘On Tour’ in eight counties. They’ll be running golf days with fun competitions to encourage new players to get out on the course and enjoy themselves with friends.

The Tour was successfully trialled in Essex this summer and will also run in 2018 in Buckinghamshire, Cheshire, Dorset, Durham, Gloucestershire, Norfolk and Nottinghamshire.

The other counties involved in Girls Golf Rocks in 2018 are Bedfordshire, Cumbria, Kent, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Wiltshire and Yorkshire.

Girls Golf Rocks is a joint project from England Golf and the Golf Foundation and aims to increase the number of girl players from an average of just two per club.

The sessions are open to all girls, regardless of whether or not they have an impairment, to try golf in a fun and supportive environment.
