LPGA * USGA Girls Golf Program
2020 Fall program information
To ensure the program adheres to social distancing, class size guidelines and to allow new participants to experience Girls Golf, we will be splitting the Girls Golf Program into two groups, a 7-9 years old group, and a 9 -17 years old group.
The 7-9 years old group will meet on Mondays, while the 9-17 years old group will meet on Wednesdays
What do parents/guardians need to do?
- Families must take our Family Orientation. This is a required orientation and must be completed before the first class.
- Download the Girls Golf App, as this will be used for communications and additional information.
- After registering, stay tuned for emails from Coach Rebecca Martinez (email@example.com)
We need your help!
We are looking for additional volunteers to help with this amazing program. If you are a female golfer this is a perfect opportunity to help share your passion and knowledge with future generations of girl golfers. If you wish to volunteer, please contact Rebecca Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 925 446 6701 ext. 105.

We create experiences that help girls fall in love with the game
Golf is a transformative sport that inherently teaches valuable life lessons like honesty and perseverance…not to mention a good sense of humor! As one of the few sports that can be played for life, golf can also enrich lives and open doors for girls who want to play for fun, compete at the highest level, or to help advance their future careers.
With this in mind, we’ve made it our mission to provide girls with the best chance to fall in love with the game by creating girl-friendly environments to help them learn and thrive!
Fun is our hook, and, once we have the girls’ attention, we help teach them life skills all girls need like positive self-image, finding their voice, and learning to lead.
We’re glad you asked! Research consistently shows that girls reap the biggest rewards when learning in all-girl environments, which helps them feel more comfortable and gives them a space where they are free to be themselves.
Girls Golf sites make learning the game fun, social, and less-intimidating for girls who are just starting out, or want to play with other girls who share their interest in the game.
Our girl-friendly golf programs:
- Offer gender-specific programming and activities for girls
- Include social and non-golf opportunities to create lasting friendships
- Give girls positive, female role models and mentors
- Provide girls opportunities to lead and give back by volunteering as mentors
- And inspire girls to live active and healthy lives
Which in turn helps girls:
- Feel more comfortable learning and developing skills
- Have heightened confidence in their abilities
- ready to embrace self-expression and communication
- And feel more comfortable engaging in group activities
The First Tee of Contra Costa offers its Girls Only skills clinic on Sundays starting in June with 4 additional optional girls-only play days on weekdays. Combine the monthly Girls Golf classes with our weekly Spring, Summer and Fall co-ed sessions for more exposure to the game of golf and quality group instruction.
Special Gift for Each Girl
Each girl who signs up for our LPGA/USGA girls golf program will receive a special gift bag!
We’re not your typical junior golf program!
Founded 25 years ago by a woman who dreamed of sharing her love for the game of golf with her two daughters, we’ve grown into a community of more than 60,000 girls across the globe who are learning and loving the game! Run in partnership between the LPGA Foundation and the United States Golf Association (the governing body in golf), LPGA*USGA Girls Golf (Girls Golf) is a non-profit 501-c3 junior golf program with sites in more than 380 communities across the country.
Girls Golf sites provide girls with quality golf instruction led by LPGA and PGA teaching professionals or certified coaches from The First Tee. Not only are they experts in taking girls from beginner to advanced golfers, but they also specialize in creating experiences that show girls just how much fun golf really is!
What could be better than that? Well, Girls Golf members learn more than just the game of golf. We help empower them with confidence and teach them valuable life skills. From Leadership skills to inspiring healthy living, we use the Five E’s of Girls Golf to Empower, Enrich, Engage, Exercise, and Energize girls through the game of golf.
