Girls Golf Club


We Are The Answer To The Questions

The question to girl golfers: Why don’t you play more golf?

The answer: Because I don’t have anyone to play with.

The Question to the parents: Why is she not practicing more?

The answer: I don’t feel comfortable dropping her off at the course and I am busy.

These seem to be the biggest obstacles to girls practicing and playing more golf, and I understand your concerns. So I have decided to start a golf club just for girls.


The Mobile Girls Golf Club                                     

2014 was the most successful year of The Mobile Girls Golf Club. We had 42 plus girls, ages 6-17 yrs old, participate in the program. The Mobile Girls Golf Club was designed to provide a fun, safe environment for girls to learn, practice, and play golf with other girls. The club consists of weekly clinics and practice days, and also monthly playing opportunities. All clinics and practice days will be taught by me or by Shirley Yeager. This is a one of a kind program. I have never heard of another program like it. 

Girls will register for the appropriate clinic or practice day according to their age. The program is done on an a la cart registration plan. Meaning you sign up for the event you want to attend. This makes it easy for you to work around busy schedules. We do however encourage the girls to participate as often as possible.

Due to the increased participation, we will split the girls into 4 age groups:

  • Girls ages 6-7 yrs old will be taught by Shirley and can attend one clinic a week, clinics are limited to 6 girls
  • Girls age 8-10 will be taught by me and can attend one clinic a week, clinics are limited to 6 girls
  • Girls ages 11-13 can attend a clinic, taught by me, and practice day, handled by Shirley, each week plus any play days
  • Girls ages 14-18 can attend a clinic, taught by me, and a practice day, handled by me and Shirley, plus any play days


Participation, Clinic Fees, and Cancellations:

  • There is an Annual Participation fee of $30 per girl or family (if sisters are participating just pay one $30 fee)
  • Each clinic and practice day will cost $20 and registration must be done online
  • If a clinic is limited to a set number of girls it is a first come, first in, situation
  • We will offer enough clinics each week to accommodate all girls, but register early if you want a certain day and time
  • We encourage registration to be made at least 3 days in advance, so we know the number attending and can make plans
  • Cancellation within a 24 hour period, or a no-show, will result in the loss of clinic fee, no exceptions
  • We know things come up at the last minute, or girls can get sick, but we can not fill vacated spots in that short a period of time
  • This is a change from the past, but due to high participation numbers we will enforce the cancellation policy

Parents are not permitted to attend clinics practice days, or play days. I know you like to watch, but this is a club for girls. They are more relaxed and have more fun when you are not there. You can watch from inside the clubhouse, or from the back patio, but not form the range or short game area.

Private Lessons:
  • Shirley: $20/half hour or two girls for an hour at $20 per girl
  • Michael: $60/hour or two girls for $75/hour
  • all private lessons will be scheduled with the instructor and payment is to be made to that instructor

Prior to Azalea City, Shirley was a member of the golf staff at Magnolia Grove. I met Shirley when she attended a Nike Junior Golf Camp I held at Spring Hill, and she was a member of the Theodore HS girl’s golf team.
