OGGF Launches Girls Golf Clinics Series

Living in Northeast Ohio, we have to work a little harder at keeping our passion for golf alive year-round. But with the growing number of local indoor facilities, the opportunities are expanding—and so is the Ohio Girls Golf Foundation (OGGF).

To help girls gear up for the season, this nonprofit organization has added winter clinics to go along with its annual lineup of spring clinics to help girls learn, compete and succeed. Girls ages 8 to 18 years old, from beginner to advanced, can get an early start on their golf game at these winter and spring clinics, held at various locations throughout the state.

The instructional clinics conducted by PGA and LPGA instructors are geared to inform, educate and expand girls’ knowledge in all aspects of golf, from full swing to short game to putting. Deadline to sign up is one week prior to clinic start date.

Winter Clinics will be held at the following locations from 9 to 10 a.m., except Judd’s Golf Sim, which is 1 to 2 p.m. Cost is $20 per session.

4700 Everhard Road NW in Canton

Girls who participate in these Winter Clinics, as well as Spring Clinics scheduled in April and May at outdoor golf ranges, will have an opportunity to continue working on their skills through individual or smaller group private lessons, as part of OGGF’s Ongoing Instruction Program, which is partially funded by the Foundation.

The foundation’s mission is to encourage, sponsor and support the game of golf for girls by providing college scholarships, golf training programs, and financial assistance to attend designated golf tournaments. Since the Foundation was established in 1994, more than 1,000 girls have attended our clinics and we have awarded more than 140 scholarships.
