Stable of Stars
During 2000 Women’s Golf Australia introduced the ‘Stable of Stars’ program to golf clubs throughout Australia. Members of WGA’s three national squads (senior, development and scholarship holders) have been given the responsibility to act as ambassadors for Women’s Golf Australia and the sport of women’s golf.

Whether you play like a professional, want to improve your handicap or have no idea what a bogey is, Play-A-Round is for women golfers of all ages and abilities. It has been designed specifically for women who enjoy golf socially and those who want to learn.
The Girls’ Golf Club (GGC) is a developmental golf program essentially designed for girls 8-17 years of age. The guidelines for the Girls’ Golf Club of Australia are based on the United State’s Ladies Professional Golfers Association Foundation Girls’ Golf Club which began in Phoenix, Arizona in 1989. It was formed specifically to create a network in which girls learn to play golf, build friendships and sample competition in a non-threatening environment.
Women’s Golf Australia has adopted the modified golf program – Wilson Go-Go Golf – as its introduction to the game of golf in schools. Using specially designed equipment, Wilson Go-Go Golf provides a series of skill activities and modified games aimed at developing the physical, coordination and social skills of students.


Sarah Kemp In Front at Australian Stroke Play (+ Round 3 Draw):
8-Feb-05
New South Wales’ Sarah Kemp produced the best round of the day, and for the tournament so far, to take one shot lead at the halfway mark of the Australian Stroke Play at Spring Valley Golf Club, Victoria.

2005 Australian Stroke Play Championship – Scores After Round 2

2005 Australian Stroke Play – Round 3 Draw

Kemp, the 2003 Australian Stroke Play champion, posted a two-under par 72 in wet conditions to finish the second day on a overall total of 149.  Kemp has a one shot advantage over first round leader Sarah Oh, while Victoria’s Emma Bennett and New South Wales’ Helen Oh share third position on 151, after rounds of 73 and 74 respectively.

Last year’s champion Misun Cho is ready to pounce with two rounds to play, currently sitting in outright fifth place, only three strokes from the lead.  Cho was one of just five golfers to achieve a second round score of par or better, on a day when persistent rain replaced blustery wind as the player’s enemy.

More favourable conditions are anticipated for the final two days for the championship, hopefully setting the scene for low scores and a close finish to the 2005 Australian Stroke Play at Spring Valley Golf Club.


HOW TO ELEVATE YOUR GOLF GAME WITH AN ELECTRIC GOLF BUGGY

Golf requires a lot more strength and energy than people give it credit for. Traditionally, golfers had to carry their own golf bags which had all their golf clubs in them. This is at least 40 or 50 pounds of weight getting carried around under the sun on a wide-open field all day.

As time went on, caddies and buggies were used to make golfing less strenuous for the players. Caddies are basically helpers who carry around the golf bags of other players. However, not every golf player can afford to hire a caddie. Many golf players prefer to move their own golf bag around. This is where a Electric golf buggy can be helpful.

Also called a golf cart, an electric golf buggy is a small electric-powered vehicle which is made for driving on the green of a golf course. Not only does it save you the trouble of walking long distances during a game, but it provides you with an easy way to transport your golf bag. As a result, you can conserve all your energy, strength, and, stamina for the game itself. You won’t overexert yourself carrying heavy bags on your back while walking for miles throughout the day. Any experienced golf player knows that exhaustion and tiredness can throw you off your game.

For this reason, all the best golf players in the world us an electric golf buggy to elevate their golf game. If you are an amateur golf player who wants to get as good as the professionals, then start by renting yourself an electric golf buggy the next time you play golf.

Virtually all golf courses allow guests and members to rent out golf buggies. So, there is no need to make any big purchases. Simply go to your local golf facility and pay the rental charge for the day. Then you can carry your golf equipment all over the green with your electric golf buggy and play to the best of your abilities.
