Girls Golf Rocks is back for 2021 and the sign-up process for beginner girls is now live and Wrag Barn is proud to part of the initiative.
The participation programme, run by England Golf and the Golf Foundation and led by PGA-qualified coaches, is specifically designed to promote the game as a fun and friendly experience for young girls new to the sport.
Although primarily aimed at participants in the 7-14 age bracket, Girls Golf Rocks is open to all girls aged 5-18.
With nearly 200 clubs spread over 35 counties taking part in 2021, there is a wide range of Girls Golf Rocks venues to choose from – and sign-up couldn’t be easier.
To join the fun at Wrag Barn, visit https://girlsgolfrocks.played.co/venues/wrag-barn-golf-club and follow the registration instructions.
Coaching will take place in two six-week blocks at various times between June and October at a cost of £35 per block.
After Covid-19 restrictions forced the cancellation of the 2020 programme, the initiative is back with renewed energy and optimism for 2021.
All golf clubs and facilities taking part this year have achieved the England Golf ‘SafeGolf’ accreditation, giving parents and guardians added peace of mind and allowing new recruits to enjoy themselves in a fun and secure environment.
The aim of Girls Golf Rocks is to boost participation numbers and address for the long-term the disparity in numbers between girls and boys playing the game. While qualified PGA professionals will lead the sessions, Girls Golf Rocks will also encourage current girl golf club members to act as peer role-models and assist in the delivery at each club by becoming programme ambassadors. In 2019, 166 girl ambassadors helped support the sessions and ensured it was the most successful campaign to date.
