This class is led by a current top Bellarmine University Women’s Golfer Coach Olivia and her team of ladies. All female coaches and participants create a unique, safe, and comfortable learning environment for young ladies. Studies have shown that when girls are in a “girl friendly” environment, they experience higher levels of engagement and participation, are more comfortable learning and developing skills, have heightened confidence in their ability for self-expression and communication, and are more likely to engage in group activities. It is a fun and exciting way to learn the game with friends and positive role models!
Since it's inception in 2018 this class has grown each year servicing over 300 young ladies in the area in that time. This class operates on Thursday evenings in the Spring, Summer, and Fall at Shawnee Golf Course. Continuing the growth of the class under Coach Olivia's leadership the session has been partnered with LPGA Girls Golf moving into 2021.
Founded in 1989 by a woman who dreamed of sharing her love for the game of golf with her two daughters, we've grown into a community of more than 90,000 girls across the globe who are learning and loving the game! Run in partnership between the LPGA Foundation and the USGA (United States Golf Association), LPGA*USGA Girls Golf (Girls Golf) is a non-profit 501-c3 junior golf program with sites in more than 500 communities across the country.
Girls Golf sites provide girls with quality golf instruction led by LPGA and PGA teaching professionals or certified coaches from The First Tee. Not only are they experts in taking girls from beginner to advanced golfers, but they also specialize in creating experiences that show girls just how much fun golf really is!
What could be better than that? Well, Girls Golf members learn more than just the game of golf. We help empower them with confidence and teach them valuable life skills. From Leadership skills to inspiring healthy living, we use the Five E's of Girls Golf to Empower, Enrich, Engage, Exercise, and Energize girls through the game of golf.
