LPGA*USGA Girls Golf – We all need to be involved – Penny Porter

Penny Porter head shotI am in the process of starting a chapter of for LPGA*USGA Girls Golf and I was shocked to find out that there are 85 Girls Golf Chapters in the MW Section and only 30 have a LPGA T&CP Member as the Site Director and one chapter has a retired LPGA Tour Member as a Director. That is 54 Sites that don’t have one of the best golf instructors in the country working with those girls! The retention percentage of girls who participate in our Girls Golf Programs is significant and those girls that stay in the game can use golf in so many aspects for years to come.

I was hesitant to start a chapter myself, but I decided to get it going and I am so thankful I did. I got a wonderful call from Louise Ball and she walked me through the steps and really reassured me that starting a chapter was so rewarding. So if you are thinking about starting a chapter, JUST DO IT! If you haven’t thought about starting one, please call one our members that is a Site Director and find out what you are missing.

  • Kelly Rothberg – Kentucky
