The LPGA*USGA Girls Golf of Fairfield County
The LPGA (Ladies’ Professional Golf Association) started the program in 1989 to introduce girls 7-17 years old to the game of golf. The LPGA and USGA partner to offer grant funds to sites around the country annually. Our local partner is the Executive Women’s Golf Association of Fairfield County (EWGA) who supports the program through matching contributions.
Our site began in 2001 with 20 girls. Our numbers have grown each year and in 2016 we had 170+ girls involved in the program. Register here for the Instructional Program @ Tashua Knolls - $95
Our program runs from April through September at Tashua Knolls Golf Course in Trumbull, CT. Director of Golf, Bobby Brown, Head Golf Professional, Jon Janik, and their group of golf instructors teach our girls the mechanics of the golf swing using Tashua’s wonderful practice facility. Our girls receive instruction on golf equipment as well as rules & etiquette of the game.
We split our group into Aces (7-8), Pars (9-10), Birdies (11-13) and Eagles (14-17) groups so the girls get quality time with the golf professionals and plenty of time on the practice range, putting green and the golf course. During the spring and summer, the girls' groups have scheduled golf clinics that meet rain or shine. In September we hold a 9-hole golf tournament for the girls and their adult partners.
