Golfing opportunity for girls



Girls golf (

Local girls are being encouraged to take up golf as part of a programme by Hampshire Ladies County Golf Association. (

Aimed at girls between 6 and 18 years of age, the focus of the weekly sessions is on having fun, and meeting other likeminded girls, while learning to play the game in a sociable environment.

East Horton Golf Club in Fair Oak will be a part of this exciting programme and will deliver a 6 week ‘Get into Golf’ course starting on 25th March 2017.  After the initial six week course girls can continue to develop their golf skills at five further monthly sessions held at one of the County Academy Centres.

Cabinet Lead for Leisure Cllr Alan Broadhurst said; ‘This is a great opportunity for local young girls to ‘have a go’ at golf and we may identify a potential ‘Women’s British Open’ champion of the future.’

It costs just £20 per person to take part in this programme, which includes the six week ‘Get into Golf course’ and attendance at the five monthly sessions held throughout the year.

The Hampshire Ladies Golf Association is joining up with golf clubs and facilities across Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Channel Islands to offer these six week starter courses that will be delivered by a PGA qualified coach. Casual dress is encouraged and all equipment will be supplied.
