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:
Participation, Clinic Fees, and Cancellations:
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.
Shirley Walker-Yeager is an LPGA Teaching Professional and a PGA Apprentice. She holds the position of Assistant Golf Professional at Azalea City. 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. I continue to work with Shirley on her game weekly. She adds a great component to the team and works great with the girls.
