Macc juniors win top trophy

Girls Golf Rocks at Prestbury

THE England Golf project –‘Girls Golf Rocks’ – is an initiative from England Golf with the project aiming to increase the numbers of girls participating in golf.

It has been trialled with success at several clubs in East Cheshire with success and Prestbury Golf Club’s PGA professional Mark Pilling, who is also a County Academy coach and a Cheshire playing legend, led a Girls Golf Rocks taster session at his club.

Mark said: “It was a great day and we had several Cheshire girls helping out on the day, including Prestbury’s England Girls star Bel Wardle, and they were able to provide plenty of help and inspiration.

“There were 11 new players taking part in the session and the large majority signed up for a ten-week coaching programme which includes going out on the golf course. “The girls will then be offered membership to the club which is hopefully the start of their journey into a new sport.”
