Greensboro, NC. –(September 3, 2010) – LPGA/USGA Girls Golf of Greensboro, a program of the Triad Youth Golf Foundation, held their fall free introductory clinic on August 28. The clinic was held at Bur-Mil Park with 6 members of the UNCG Women’s Golf Team.
“It is exciting to see young girls start at such a young age. I think it is important to have young golfers see where the game of golf can take them, and inspire them to one day play in college. We would love to continue our involvement in the program on a routine basis,” says Emily Marron, UNCG Women’s Head Coach. Players of the UNCG Women’s Golf Team demonstrated all areas of the game including irons, driving and putting during the free clinic.
The session was attended by 14 young female golfers that are a part of the Girls Only Living FORE Fun (G.O.L.F.F.) program. Designed to provide a more social, fun introduction into golf, the G.O.L.F.F. program combines social activities, fun games, and golf clinics to enrich girls’ lives.
Site director, Kathleen Strandberg, runs both Winston Salem and Greensboro chapters of the G.O.L.F.F. program. A former North Carolina State Women’s Golfer, Strandberg brings passion and expertise to teach young girls.
