The golf authorities in England have launched a new grant scheme aimed at attracting more girls and women to play the game.
The English Women’s Golf Association has been opened up to include provision for welcoming new women players of all ages to start golf. The scheme has the express aim of creating more female players in England and ensuring they stay in the game. This simpler grant for reaching a wider age group of new golfers will be accessed through the England Golf County Golf Partnership structure.
In 2009, every one of 35 County Golf Associations in England ran girls’ golf coaching thanks to the EWGA grants. Coaching activity was directed at junior club members and girls at the early stages of playing the game.
