No Girls Golf Program Near You?
The number of LPGA-USGA Girls Golf locations across the U.S. is growing every day. If there is no Girls Golf site near you, consider reaching out to your local LPGA or PGA golf professional and urging him or her to get one started in your community. It’s easy to start a program, and a number of resources are available, including financial, to help create and run a fun and successful program.
We also urge you to contact us! We may be able to provide additional support to get a program up and running.
Interested in starting an LPGA-USGA Girls Golf site of your own?
You don't need to be an LPGA or PGA golf professional to run a Girls Golf program. Many of our programs are coordinated by parents or community leaders who are simply passionate about getting girls hooked on the game golf!

Junior Golf Resources
A number of resources are available to parents who are interested in getting their daughters learning and enjoying the game of golf.
Here are just a few recommendations to help you get your junior interested:
Contact your local LPGA or PGA Teaching Professional
LPGA and PGA members are certified golf professionals and experts in teaching junior golfers. Your local Pro may already have a junior golf program established at their facility and can help introduce your child to the game through group or private instruction.
