Womens Golf Programs
Lorette Roberts, High Performance Development Manager, joined Women’s Golf Australia in March 2001. Lorette will be involved in developing a support network that will bring together information from a number of sources on systems and protocols such as nutrition, strength development, conditioning, posture, sports vision, psychology, and personal and career management.
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.
