The end of the 2013 season is almost here. Many of you will already be thinking about your golf plans for 2014. I have attached the 2014 diary to this web page to help you plan which events you would like to enter. I will add many of these dates to the official DCLGA fixture list early next year.
I would like to congratulate all the girls that have reduced their handicaps this year; there have been some significant improvements. Well done!
There are several support systems in place to help girls wanting to improve individual golfing skills.
DCLGA Coaching over the winter months is already taking place at Wynyard Leadbetter Academy and at Hartlepool Golf Club. There will be an assessment for younger girls in the New Year at Headlam Hall. This will take place on Saturday March 15th 2014 - the coaches will be Pat Smillie and Steve Carpenter. There will be six, 3 hour coaching sessions over the Spring and Summer months for the girls chosen. Please email me and let me know if you are interested in attending this assessment.
The Durham County Golf Partnership also provides coaching support. All information on these coaching dates can be found on the Durham County Golf Partnership website.
There is an extensive programme of competitions, many of which are listed on the attachment below. We are very grateful to England Golf, the Durham County Junior Golfing Society, the Durham County Golf Partnership and Durham Clubs for organising competitions which girls are eligible to enter. There are plenty of opportunities for girls to play golf in Durham
Please contact me if you have queries regarding junior golf for girls in Durham.
I look forward to seeing all of you once again in 2014 and watching your progress. Hopefully we will once again be able to welcome many new girls .
