20 Posts for 20 Years Series – Post #17

Every Tuesday afternoon, during our eight programming months of the year, 24 girls gather at East Potomac Golf Courses for their Girls ONLY PLAYer class. These 24 girls gather to learn that Little Girls can have Big Dreams. These 24 girls practice their games in a space with girls who are uniquely themselves. These 24 girls are LPGA-USGA Girls Golf participants at The First Tee of Greater Washington, DC.

Over the past few years the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf program here at The First Tee of Greater Washington, DC has grown tremendously. We started in 2012 with just 8 girls and now serve over 200.

Each month the Girls Golf Gals, as we like to call them, have an opportunity or two to attend events where they can meet other girls who play golf. This year alone, they have ice skated, learned from women on local collegiate teams, gone to classes, Luau’d at Mini Golf, fished in and toured the Anacostia River, and celebrated International Women’s Day.

Over the last twenty years, we have served young women who have gone onto achieve those Big Dreams and we cannot wait for what the next twenty plus have in store for our Girls Golf Gals.
