NORWALK — The SCGA Junior Golf Foundation has announced the opening of its LPGA-USGA Girls Golf of Southeast L.A. chapter, which opened Dec. 8 at the Don Knabe Golf Course.
The kick-off event marked the start of golf programming at the Norwalk golf course that is focused on introducing girls to golf and keeping them engaged with the sport through a supportive atmosphere.
The Southeast L.A. chapter is one of more than 400 LPGA-USA Girls Golf sites across the country.
The chapter will host monthly programming on the first Friday of every month for girls of all ages and abilities.
“I’m so excited to introduce girls from this community to the game of golf and keep them involved in the sport by providing them with a community that is about more than just playing the game,” said Jennifer Seislove, SCGA Junior Golf Foundation Director of Operations and Development. “This program will allow girls to connect through social and mentoring activities while providing the opportunity to improve their game to whatever extent they have an interest.”
LPGA-USGA Girls Golf is the only national junior golf program that specializes in providing female-friendly environments to teach girls the game of golf and life skills. The program focuses on teaching girls the “Five E’s,” which are: enrich, energize, empower, engage and exercise.
