Empowering girls to dream BIG...
LPGA*USGA Girls Golf is the only national junior golf program that specializes in providing girl-friendly environments for juniors to learn the game of golf. As a Girls Golf Site Director since 2003, I help prepare girls ages 6 – 17 for a lifetime of enjoyment of the game while also inspiring them to feel confident and live active and healthy lives through The Five E’s of Girls Golf (Empower, Enrich, Engage, Energize, and Exercise).

Girls Golf at Tallwood

2018 Clinic Schedule
All Girls Golf Clinics are 75 minutes. We start with a 30 minute craft followed by 45 minutes of instruction/games/contests. Why include a craft in a golf clinic? It serves to break the ice with newcomers and adds a social element to what is typically an individual sport. Other than safety, the most important ingredient to a successful youth sport experience is fun. All of my Girls Golf Clinics are designed to make the experience of learning golf fun.

LPGA Leadership Academy
One of our Girls Golf members, Meghna Mazumdar, shares her experiences with the LPGA Leadership Academy...
The LPGA Leadership Academy uses golf as a vehicle to provide a framework for young women to develop their confidence, communication, and leadership skills.
Dream Big!!!
Meghna inspires us all with her extraordinary journey...
In the fall of 2017, Meghna was chosen to represent the First Tee of Connecticut at the First Tee's Leadership Academy. As part of this experience, she was asked to speak about the core value of honesty. The week culminated with Meghna receiving the National Outstanding First Tee Participant Award and a $20,000 college scholarship. Way to go Meghna!  I am so very proud of you and thankful for your service as an E Leader with my Girls Golf site, inspiring other young girls to strive for excellence.
