Firstly I would like to thank Taskers UK, on behalf of the SLCGA, for their continued efforts to support our county juniors and new youngsters into golf.
The money will enable us to continue our training squads for girls of all ages in conjunction with 3 Hammers Golf Academy. This year we are taking 14 juniors to Anglesey to play and be coached by the 3 Hammers Pro’s, playing for a trophy donated by the family of Sue Turner.
The funding will also allow us to help certain players who need financial support. There are many new initiatives to encourage girls into golf and your funding will help us to participate in these.
After benefiting from your funding, our girls have once again had a good year. Morgan Thomas and Hannah Golding are in the U16 West Midlands training squads. Hannah Golding was recently on the Sky Masterclass with Nick Dougherty and Charlie Hull and played in the Pro Am with Nicholas Colsearts at the British Masters. Morgan Thomas won the Midland Girls Championship breaking the Ruddington Grange ladies’ course record shooting 3 under.
With the aid of your funding we will continue to develop junior golf in Staffordshire and hope to have another successful year in 2018
