Golfing Girl Guides
EGTF Professional, Deborah Smith
It has been over a year since I was learning to become an EGTF Professional and what a year it has been. I am happy to say I am earning money teaching at schools/Golf Club at Sudbury and recently (after 9 months knocking on doors) I was invited to join 1400 Girl Guides for their Sporting Activity gathering in Black Land Farm, East Grinstead, over the May bank holiday.
Over the 3 days, at 30 minute sessions each, I introduced 578 Girl Guides to games and activities, to introduce them to the game of golf. What a wonderful experience for the girls from the ages of 7 – 12 years, some with learning difficulties and from all walks of life. I was able to bring to them a sport which they would never have imagined they would ever try. It was a great success and I have been asked to teach certain regions in the South East and in smaller numbers, more techniques and also to set up a mini 3 par course so that they get the feel of a real golf course.
I cannot thank Bill and Pauline enough for all their help and support.
