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 LPGA Amateurs Fairfield County chapter (EWGA) who supports the program through generous contributions.

Our site began in 2001 with 20 girls.  Our numbers have grown each year and in 2018 we had over 120 girls involved.

Our program runs from April through September at Tashua Knolls Golf Course in Trumbull, CT.  Director of Golf, Bobby Brown and his 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 meet “rain or shine” thanks to Tashua's new Miklus Junior Golf facility.

We split our group into Aces (7-8 yrs), Pars (9-10 yrs.), Birdies (11-12 yrs.) and Eagles (13-17 yrs.) groups so the girls get quality time with the golf instructors and plenty of time on the practice range, putting green and the golf course.  During the spring, the groups meet on average three weeks on Tuesdays from 5:30-7pm for golf clinics.  From June through August, Aces and Pars groups meet every other Tuesday while the Birdies and Eagles groups go out on the Glen course every Wednesday evening.  In September we hold a 9-hole golf tournament for the girls and their adult partners.
