Girls’ golf is about to get rocking in Norfolk with the launch of a campaign to inspire new players. Girls Golf Rocks is all about attracting beginners to have fun, learn a new sport, get active and play alongside friends – with no pressure. Girl golfers from county squads will act as ambassadors, sharing their enjoyment and inspiring other girls, aged five to 18. The campaign tees off with free taster sessions, supported by the county girls, at the four clubs taking part: Royal Norwich Golf Club and Barnham Broom Golf Club on Saturday 2nd April; Dereham Golf Club on Sunday 3rd April; Marriott Sprowston Manor Hotel & Country Club on Sunday 10th April.

They consolidate the previous year’s results which had indicated that the downward trend was slowing. The results give cause for optimism that the focus on creating more players, more members and stronger clubs is having a positive impact.
