We are excited to launch SLGA Golf Girls, a brand new series of fun coach and play days.
Following the success of the SLGA Golf Girls programme in April, we are excited to announce the dates for follow up sessions in June.
Led by SLGA girls Development Coach, PGA Professional Ian Muir, the free programme will run at seven locations around Scotland in June. Girls will have the opportunity to receive some coaching from Ian followed by a fun team skills challenge with lots of prizes.
The focus for each day will be to have fun, help the girls to meet and make new friends and increase confidence!
This is an exciting opportunity for girls to meet other young golfers, have a great day out and improve their game! Who knows, this could be their first step on the road to playing for Scotland.

See what some of Scotland’s top professional players think about our new coach and play days...
Pamela Pretswell, Ladies’ European Tour Player and graduate of the Scottish Golf Academy.
Pamela said: “I was very nervous when I played in my first events when I was younger - I didn't know anyone, but I quickly made some good friends and was made to feel very welcome at tournaments and training days. I became friends with Kylie Walker at one of my first tournaments and ten years later we are good friends and playing on the LET together. Playing golf allows you meet so many people and also gives you the opportunity to travel to and see so many different places which is great fun and exciting. Playing golf has given me a lot of self-confidence and I have made a lot of good friends from all round the world through golf.”
Sally Watson, Ladies’ European Tour Player.
Sally said: "I always found playing in new events or going to training days for the first time to be both slightly scary (not knowing anyone) and exciting at the same time but I always came away feeling good about myself for overcoming my fear and more times than not I would meet some great people. These experiences often push us to go outside of our comfort zone but this helps us develop as people and gives us the opportunity to make new friends and build our self-confidence as we take on new challenges."
Gemma Dryburgh, 2014 Curtis Cup Player and SLGA Squad Player
