Sometimes It's Not About Golf!

LPGA-USGA Girls Golf programs offer instruction from golf professionals who are passionate about sharing the game they love with juniors…and they’re equally as passionate about having fun while they do!

It’s our philosophy that juniors should be introduced to the FUNdamentals of the game of golf. With this in mind, Girls Golf sites pride themselves on infusing fun and opportunities to be social into their programming to keep girls engaged and enjoying the game.  Often this means putting down the 7 iron and having a golf fashion show, or cutting the drills short to make time for a pizza party. After all, golf is a game right?! We take our job of making it fun seriously!

Golf instruction is often delivered through energizing activities and skill based games to foster development and could include anything from setting up golf obstacle courses, hosting golf outings that include parents and friends, going on group field trips and so much more.

Why Are “Girl-Friendly” Golf Programs So Important?

The game of golf offers girls a myriad of benefits and life skills that are inherent to the game, and is a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. This is why it is our mission to provide girls with the opportunity to fall in love with the game by offering the most “girl-friendly” environment as possible.

 

GIRLS GOLF DEFINES A “GIRL-FRIENDLY” ATMOSPHERE AS A PLACE THAT:

  • Offers gender specific programming and activities for girls
  • Includes social, non-golf opportunities and friendships
  • Provides positive female role models and mentors
  • Allows opportunities to give back through volunteering and serving as mentors
  • And inspires girls to live active and healthy lives.

 

STUDIES HAVE CONSISTENTLY SHOWN THAT WHEN GIRLS LEARN IN A 
“GIRL-FRIENDLY” ENVIRONMENT, THEY

  • Experience higher levels of engagement and participation
  • Are more comfortable learning and developing skills
  • Have heightened confidence in their abilities for self-expression and communication
  • Are more likely to engage in group activities.

What the Experts Say...

  • Research consistently shows that girls reap the biggest rewards when learning in all-girl environments – allowing them to feel more comfortable learning the game in a setting where they are free to be themselves.
  • Participating in sports is crucial for helping girls develop positive self-esteem and confidence.
  • On average, more than 40 percent of girls drop out of sports by the age of 14 years old.
  • Strong female mentors and peer role models inspire girls to develop higher expectations for themselves.
  • Girls are more focused on their performance than their appearance when in a girl-friendly environment.
