Free girls golf coaching

Sep 18, 2019 | Jenni Ashford

Girls golf is being given a leg-up at Exeter Golf and Country Club with the Pro Team offering free introductory sessions and a free four-week coaching course for girls aged between 8 and 14 years old.

After the excitement of the 90,000 spectators watching this week’s Solheim Cup, the spotlight is definitely on women’s golf. The huge crowds, possibly the biggest ever for women’s golf in the UK, were rewarded with genuine, spine-tingling sporting drama as the golf event unfolded.

Now is a golden opportunity for the female golf game to develop and grow.  While boy’s golf is thriving, girls golf needs a big push. Anyone who witnessed the winning putt on the last green at Solheim, and the ebbs and flows that preceded it, will be aware of the sport’s capacity to enthrall and entertain. It’s time to use this to build golf amongst younger girls too.

To celebrate the heroines of Europe’s success with more recognisable female golfers taking the limelight, Exeter Golf and Country Club are taking steps to encourage more young girls to get into golf. The club already has six girls playing regional golf for the Devon Golf team, but recognises that it is vital to drive this further for the future, both for Exeter and the county as a whole.

Darren Everett, Director of Golf said, “We want to inspire the next generation of female golfers and that’s why we are offering this amazing opportunity to girls between 8 and 14 years of age. This is the perfect age to get them hooked on golf, and hopefully playing for the county in no time!

Two FREE introductory taster sessions are taking place on Tuesday 22nd October and Saturday 26th October from 3pm – 4.30pm, followed by four one-hour group coaching sessions – also absolutely FREE to any budding golfing girls who sign up.

Led by Darren, his PGA Professional team will deliver some fun based sessions allowing all participants an opportunity to try golf. No experience is necessary and no equipment is required as this will be provided.

The taster sessions will be held at the Topsham Golf Academy on the following dates:

Tuesday 22nd October – 3 – 4.30pm
Saturday 26th October – 2 – 3.30pm

The four-week course takes place on Tuesdays from 5pm – 6pm and Saturdays from 2pm – 3pm, starting from Tuesday 5th November and Saturday 9th November.

Girls who want to book are welcome to bring friends for free – simply let us know when you book!
