This is a program designed to introduce new women golfers to the game and keep them in the game. Key relationships are established between the women who play regularly at a specific golf course and the PGA or LPGA Professional at that same course. Since 2006 the program has graduated over 1,400 students.
Through this relationship, the golf teaching professional and the experienced women golfers (Mentors) work together to create an environment where women with little or no experience can come out and learn everything from how the game is played, to swing and playing basics, to establishing relationships within the golf community that will help them feel comfortable navigating the golf course on their own. The program fee is $195 for all six sessions. If you have golf clubs go ahead and bring them but if not don't worry, you'll be able to borrow some. All you need to bring with you is your enthusiasm to learn the game of golf!
