Girls Golf Rocks comes to Antrobus

Girls Golf Rocks, the campaign which has attracted over 120 Cheshire girls to try golf since it started in 2016, is coming to Antrobus Golf Club in June.

Girls Golf Rocks is all about having fun, learning a new sport, getting active and playing alongside friends – with no pressure.

Antrobus, near Northwich, is joining seven other Cheshire clubs to offer Girls Golf Rocks and will start the action with a free taster session at 4pm on Saturday 9th June. Girls will be introduced to golf in a fun and friendly environment by Head Professional Robin Carroll and his assistant Andy Buchanan. To find out more and book visit www.girlsgolfrocks.org

Following the taster session, the girls will be offered two six-week coaching courses at a cost of £30 per course. Girls who sign up to the first block will receive a free 7 iron from US Kids that they can take away and practice with between lessons.

At the end of the second course the girls will be invited to join other girls from across the county at a Girls Golf Rocks on Tour event being held at Lymm Golf Club on 23rd September.

The event is open to all girl golfers across the county, whether or not they’ve been involved with Girls Golf Rocks, and is designed to encourage beginners and improvers to play more often.

Robin Carroll said “We are delighted to be able to offer Girls Golf Rocks at Antrobus this summer and are looking forward to welcoming new girls to our club at the taster session on 9th June. The session will be fun and informal and we hope that the girls will enjoy their taste of golf and choose to take part in the coaching programme to follow’.

Alison Lysons, England Golf’s Club Support Officer in West Cheshire, said: “We’ve had a great response since we first launched Girls Golf Rocks in Cheshire. I’m delighted that Antrobus Golf Club is joining the programme and I look forward to working with the team there to introduce more new girls to the game of golf.”

Girls Golf Rocks is run by England Golf and the Golf Foundation in 21 counties. It aims to increase the number of girl golfers from an average of just two full members per club and it’s having a great impact.

When Girls Golf Rocks ran in 15 counties last year over 850 girls had a go and more than 730 enjoyed it so much they went on to take coaching courses.
