Sunday saw the first of the Girls love Golf days for 2014. Held at Creek 9, the mashie course at Rooseveldt Park Recreation Centre, 20 girls (from 3 feet to 5 feet tall!) turned up for the event. The girls were sent off in 3 balls. The more experienced girls went off unattended, while the girls who were new to a golf course were supervised by Andy Ostle’s team and myself. It was awesome to see the girls get so excited about the game. The girls played a 3 ball alliance 1 score to count and the day was concluded by snack packs and prize giving.
