Girls Club



2017 ONLINE REGISTRATION IS LIVE

The Future Links Girls’ Club at The Golf Canada Calgary Centre is a proven program based on the premise that we can encourage more young girls to experience all of the positives and life skills the game of golf has to offer in a non-intimidating, positive, fun filled “girls only” learning environment. Our coaches and program coordinators have years of experience ensuring the girls will love the program and develop their skills and knowledge of the game at the same time. Girls will participate in weekly golf lessons, fun crafts and fundamental movement skill development exercises.

More About The Program
Not all girls are motivated by competition. Some don’t like it and others might like it if they felt more prepared. The Girls’ Club focuses on introducing girls to the game and developing their skills to be prepared and confident for social competition. While developing friendships and learning how to compete many of the girls will be happy to remain playing at this level while others will progress and desire to compete on a tougher scale. The important point is the Girls’ Club program prepares them and offers that choice.
 
Two time sessions are designed to provide the girls the opportunity to learn and develop alongside other girls their own age. Our weekly activities are fun and engaging while promoting skill development. The program also offers enough individual instruction to be well suited for all age and skill levels. Girls’ Clubs meets each week from May 6th – June 10th and then we encourage the girls to join us on the Range and Par 3 Course for our Friday Evening Play Nights. These evenings are a great opportunity for the girls to practice their skills and have the chance to try them out on the course!
 
Our Parent/Daughter Event is a fun family event held before the Wind-Up Summer Starts Barbeque. The tournament is a modified scramble format and includes many skill competitions so that all the girls have the opportunity to show their skills and win fun prizes! This format takes the pressure off head-to-head competition and places more emphasis on fun, enjoyment and celebrating the skills we have learned.
 
A number of theme days are held during the year such as our ‘Dad & Daughter’ day on Father’s Day as well Team Alberta and Vikes Varsity Day where the girls have a chance to spend some time in our clinic and play nights with members from the Team Alberta Girls and the University of Victoria Women’s Golf Teams.

Girls' Club is part of Future Links, Canada’s National Junior Golf Development Program designed to “Ensure the Future of Golf”. Conducted by Golf Canada in partnership with the PGA of Canada and Canada’s provincial golf associations, the program consists of multi-level instruction and rewards, clinics, camps, support materials and special programs to raise awareness of junior golf and address the issues of accessibility and affordability.

The Girls’ Club was developed to address the huge discrepancy between the numbers of young girls playing golf compared to the number of young boys. It aims not merely to attract girls to the game but also to help retain them longer.
