Enmore Park Golf Club hosted the Somerset Girls Championship on Sunday, which saw 24 players from eight golf clubs taking part, half playing 36 holes while the other half played 18.

At the end of the championship, the winner was Abigail Whittock from Saltford Golf Club.

This event is a great showcase for inspiring girl golfers to develop their golfing skills and participate in county competitions.

EPGC incorporates a wide range of planned activities to encourage both boys and girls to take up golf.

They offer fun day sessions held in the Easter and summer school holidays, plus regular Saturday morning coaching sessions for young people of all ages.

The club successfully bid for funding from Somerset Ladies Golf Association to promote girls' golf, and the club's PGA Professional, Harry Brown, designed a partnership programme with a local primary school to enable many pupils to try out the sport.

Harry and assistant golf professional Alex Elwick then hosted four taster golf sessions for year 5 and 6 pupils in the school field at St Mary's in Bridgwater.

In total, 120 children, including 30 girls, attended the sessions.

Following this, the youngsters were invited back to Enmore for a further coaching session, which was attended by 23 pupils, five of whom were girls.

With more space and equipment available, they could hit long shots, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

After the session, everyone was given information on Enmore's Saturday morning coaching sessions and a voucher for their first free session.

Three girls and four boys have signed up for the upcoming sessions.

EPGC will extend its partnership during the coming seasons to encourage more young people to get into golf.

Enmore Park Junior Summer School will take place this year on Wednesdays: August 7, 14, and 21, 2024, between 10am and 4pm.
