The local chapter of the LPGA/USGA Girls Golf Club of Bluffton is starting its eighth year and is excited to announce that they are conducting a number of clinics at The First Tee of the Low Country.  The facility is located at the Boys and Girls Club of Hilton Head.  Both organizations have the same goals for juniors.  Together they will provide girls with quality golf instruction.

     The girls will learn so much more than the game of golf.  They will be exposed to the 5 "E's" of Girls Golf:  Empower, Enrich, Engage, Energize and Exercise.  The First Tee's mission to provide educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through golf go hand-in-hand with LPGA Girls Golf philosophy.  Above all the girls will have fun and build new relationships.

     Our local chapter is co-directed by Dr. Jean Harris and Krista Dunton, both LPGA Teachers of the Year.  The program also utilizes local LPGA and PGA professionals who volunteer their expertise to give the girls great instruction.

     Volunteers are needed to help the golf professionals.  They can also use help in the areas of motor skill stations, crafts, character and value sessions.  Contact us at our email address listed below.

     Girls Golf is open to all girls ages 7-17.  Girls need no prior golf knowledge and golf equipment is supplied for those who don't have golf clubs.  Girls who possess previous knowledge and skill will be able to advance their skills and have opportunities to play.  There will be a skills assessment so that the girls will be placed in the proper level of instruction.

     The program begins in January 2018 with bi-monthly meetings on Sundays, from 3-5:00, through May.  Events will be held at various golf facilities in the low country including Rose Hill, Pinecrest, Berkeley Hall, Colleton River, and the Boys and Girls Club of Hilton Head.  There will also be a field trip to the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate and the Heritage PGA event at Harbour Town.

   The fee for the five month program is $135 per girl.  Scholarships are available based on need.  For more information and to register, please contact LPGA Girls Golf of Bluffton at  girlsgolfbluffton@gmail.com.  The deadline for registration is January 26th. You can also call Dr. Jean at (843) 540-1456.
