Your membership with the CCJGA automatically gives you a FREE membership into the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf program. However, you must do two things:
The 2018 Girls Only Golf Season will consist of 10 “events” with a maximum of 20 girls per event and these are separate from the CCJGA season. The “events” will be outlined, organized and run by the individual host courses and their staff. You will register for the events by logging into your CCJGA BlueGolf account, clicking the Seminars Tab, and then choosing the event(s) you want to sign up for. (Registration is now open).
The CCJGA Committee will be in charge of setting the field (due to the maximum of 20 girls per event), collecting payments and getting the host course a list of participants. Questions about anything prior to the day of the event can be sent to Mike Serijan at my email.
These events will have a focus on fun and camaraderie, so the formats will be fun rather than competitive (no trophies). We would like a mix of older and younger girls with the older girls serving as mentors for the younger players.
WHY ARE “GIRL-FRIENDLY” GOLF PROGRAMS SO IMPORTANT?
The game of golf offers girls a myriad of benefits and life skills that are inherent to the game, and is a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. This is why it is our mission to provide girls with the opportunity to fall in love with the game by offering the most “girl-friendly” environment as possible. Research consistently shows that girls reap the biggest rewards when learning in all-girl environments – allowing them to feel more comfortable learning the game in a setting where they are free to be themselves. Strong female mentors and peer role models inspire girls to develop higher expectations for themselves.
