Girls golf will be Rocking at Wrag Barn on Saturday when the club’s professionals run a free two-hour taster session.
The event is part of England Golf’s national scheme Girls Golf Rocks which is aimed at encouraging young women to take up the sport.
Saturday’s session takes place from 2.30pm-4.30pm at the Highworth-based course and there are still places up for grabs for anyone interested in taking part.
All equipment is provided and those taking part are just required to wear comfortable footwear.
The girls will get to use Wrag Barn’s fantastic facilities and will be given a full introduction to the game of golf.
Furthermore, for those who are interested in taking up the sport they can sign up to the Girls Golf Rocks scheme for just £14 which will see them receive a US Kids 7 iron for their size, six hourly sessions and entry to a Par 3 tournament at North Wilts Golf Club in June. They will also work towards their Junior Golf Passport during the scheme and receive lots of certificates and other goodies along the way.
Wrag Barn professional David Curl is delighted to be heading up the scheme and is looking forward to welcoming the next generation of women to the sport.
“Girls Golf Rocks is a national project where talented county golfers mentor younger girls and introduce them to all the benefits of the sport,” said Curl.
“Girls Golf Rocks is all about attracting beginners to have fun, learn a new sport, get active and play alongside friends – with no pressure.
“Wrag Barn wanted to participate in the Girls Golf Rocks scheme to introduce more girls to golf. We have great facilities to offer the girls for their sessions and a good group of current girl golfers to mentor the new girls on their future journey.
“Certainly since the introduction of Girls Golf Rocks, the participation of Girls into Golf has increased, which is fantastic.
“With more tour events on the Ladies Tour of English Girls and more availability of golf to schools from PGA professionals introducing Tri Golf and Get into Golf sessions it is certainly increasing participation for all and the female game is thriving.”
