Speakers Program 2022

Our speakers program allows our players to learn from golf organizations and players in the community what is happening, learning new skills and rules and what is available to them as they get older.

Three or four times during the season, we schedule Speakers/Mentors who present information on all aspects of the golf industry. The 20 minute presentation is followed by the regular clinic, begins promptly at 6PM. The speaker remains for the entire clinic to interface with the girls. Please visit the "Schedule page" to view Speaker/Mentor dates.
