Wow! The 2016 LPGA*USGA Girls Golf Day was a HUGE Success!

Saturday, September 3rd at Papago Golf Course the community, girls and families gathered to celebrate Girls Golf in a day long extravaganza unlike any other day in the history of Girls Golf. The City of Phoenix helped us in declaring it an official city day!

About 95 girls {ages 5-17} assembled for a FREE morning "These Girls Rock! Clinic" that was hosted by LPGA*USGA Girls Golf of Phoenix Partners: The First Tee of Phoenix, Vision 54's Coach, Kristine Reese, and Kay Cornelius. This elite crew of instructors led the girls through a fun workshop engaging them with a lesson centered on Confidence and Empowerment! They ended with goodies from the Girls Golf national team and Donuts from Rainbow Donuts {7th Street Location}.

 

After the clinic, the real celebration took place and Studio 8 Event Entertainment kept the crowd hyped and girls entertained during this fun social time. The agenda included a vendor expo, press gathering and we all welcomed a special guest.

"I am so grateful to have support from these partners, and the community to help make this day even bigger and better than 2015" says Cori Matheson, Director of Girls Golf of Phoenix.

 

Our special VIP guest for the day, Hannah O'Sullivan, visited with the crowd. O'Sullivan is the 3rd ranked armature golfer in the world and number ONE in the US! She lives here in AZ and offers a young, vibrant and mature take on making golf fun and dreaming BIG! She was able to chat with us all and present the official City of Phoenix Proclamation for a photo opportunity.

 

During the day attendees were also offered a huge merchandise sale and asked to participate in Raffle/Silent Auctions making for an excellent fundraising day for this busy non-profit.

The days activates concluded with an afternoon tournament for members of The Girls Golf of Phoenix. 85 Girls hit the links in the BIGGEST individual stroke play tournament round in the history of Girls Golf. Girls ages 3-17 played a challenging course and didn't let the 104+ heat stop them! Champion and low round winner, Kyla Wilde {age 13}, dominated the course with a two over par round of 74 {5800 yds.}. The tournament girls were fed by local food truck, Burgers Amore and awarded special prizes donated by Just4Golf.  

 

At sunset, the day concluded – a big breath and sigh from the crew at Papago Golf Couse, the 20+ amazing volunteers, the parents and girls. We cleaned up, packed up to conclude the busiest, biggest and BEST day for the LPGA*USGA Girls Golf of Phoenix.
