LPGA * USGA Girls Golf Program
2020 program information
The 2020 Girls Golf Program will start on Wednesday, July 15, 2020 at Diablo Creek Golf Course
To ensure the program adheres to social distancing and class size guidelines, we will be splitting the Girls Golf Program into two groups, a 9 years and up group (Group #1), and a 7-8 years old group (Group 2).
Both groups will be meeting on the same day; however, the class times for each group will be different. Group #2 will meet from 3:00 – 4:00 pm. Group #1 will meet from 4:15-5:15PM) Both groups will have an opportunity to come together (while maintaining social distancing of course) during Play Days.
What do parents/guardians need to do?
- Before the first meeting next week, 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.
- Stay tuned for an email from Coach Rebecca Martinez (email@example.com)
On Wednesday, July 15, 2020, and Wednesday, July 22nd, 2020 classes will meet at Diablo Creek Golf Course (4050 Port Chicago Highway, Concord, CA, 94520). We are working on confirming on-course dates, and the additional meeting dates will be announced soon, but are very likely remaining on Wednesday afternoons. The Girls Golf Program will run for 10 weeks as originally planned.

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.
