american golf this girl canTo celebrate National Golf Month, American Golf is teaming up with Sport England’s ‘This Girl Can’ campaign to give more women the chance to try out golf.

As part of its commitment to National Golf Month and increasing participation in the game, American Golf will be offering hundreds of free golf taster sessions across its nationwide network of stores throughout May.

Dan Gathercole, Head of Marketing at American Golf comments, “Picking up a golf club for the first time can be a daunting experience, so we’re offering girls and women the chance to come in store with their friends and get a taste for the game in a relaxed environment with our PGA professionals. Working with the team at This Girl Can has given us the chance to reach women who might never have even thought about golf and with the opportunities on offer for National Golf Month I hope we can help inspire the next generation of women golfers.”

In conjunction with ‘This Girl Can’, American Golf has put together an introduction to golf page on its website that aims to make trying out golf a little easier. From what to wear to how to hold a club, the page is packed with hints and tips that will give women a head start in the game.

With the basics in mind, it’s just one step away from a free taster session through National Golf Month
