The Rocky Mountain Section PGA Foundation administers the LPGAóUSGA Girls Golf program in Boise, Idaho. The Girls Golf Club is a developmental junior golf program that encourages girls ages 7-17 to learn to play golf, build friendships and sample competition in a non-threatening environment. The only national initiative of its kind, Girls Golf is administered through a partnership between the LPGA Foundation and the USGA, both non-profit 501c charitable organizations. Through Girls Golf, young girls learn more than just the game of golf, they experience the 5 E's of Girls Golf: Empower, Enrich, Engage, Exercise and Energize.
The program offers a progressive learning system on the golf course starting with 3 holes and progressing to 9. At each event the girls receive group instruction touching on the basics of the game including putting, short game, full swing, rules and etiquette. The next step is experiencing play on the golf course.
The LPGA USGA Girls Golf program provides girls with access to the game and friendly competition while showing them that golf is a fun and healthy lifetime sport!
Membership dues are $25 and the fee for each event is $8 including an after play snack. The program runs from June 2 through August 25th.
