GIRLS’ golf will be rocking again in Cheshire when the successful campaign to inspire new young players returns next month.

.Girls Golf Rocks is all about attracting beginners to have fun, learn a new sport, get active and play alongside friends.

Free girls’ taster sessions will be on offer at eight clubs, followed by group coaching courses with PGA professionals, supported by young ambassadors from the county squads.

The taster sessions are at:

Hartford Golf Club on Saturday 22 April, 1-3pm

Eaton Golf Club on Saturday 22 April, 1-3pm

Romiley Golf Club on Sunday 23 April, 10-11am

Alderley Edge Golf Club on Sunday 23 April, 2-3pm

Caldy Golf Club on Sunday 30 April, 10am-12noon

Ringway Golf Club on Sunday 30 April, 1-2pm

Prenton Golf Club on Sunday 30 April, 2-4pm

Following the tasters, the clubs will each offer a five-week coaching course with PGA professionals, when the ambassadors will be on hand to encourage the newcomers. All the girls completing the coaching courses will be given a US Kids Golf 7-iron to help them start playing.

Then, the new players will be invited to a fun day with the ambassadors featuring multi-skills challenges and the chance to play on a golf course.

Girls Golf Rocks is a national campaign, run jointly by England Golf and the Golf Foundation, and it aims to increase the number of girl golfers from an average of just two full members per club.

It ran in Cheshire for the first time last year and was very successful with 175 girls attending the tasters and 148 going on to taking coaching courses.

Abby Baumber, the Cheshire County junior organiser, said: “The continued success of Girls Golf Rocks in Cheshire is testament of the hard work, enthusiasm and dedication of all of those involved. It’s fantastic to see so many girls starting their journey in golf, having fun and making friends along the way!

Girls Golf Rocks started in 2015 with a trial in Essex. Ambassadors and new players from the county are now featured in a Girls Golf Rocks video, which captures all that’s special about the programme. Bella Jay, 14, sums it up when she says: “Golf has done so much for me, I love it. You should come and join us and see how much fun it is.”
