A school in Buckinghamshire have taken it upon themselves to boost girls' golf after introducing a new after-school initiative designed to get their pupils involved in the game.
With 23 of the students from all-girls school, Thornton College, having been introduced to the sport for the first time this summer, when they acted as scoreboard carriers at Woburn Golf Club during the Ricoh Women’s British Open, the girls will now have the opportunity to try the game at an after-school club on the College’s new on-campus driving range.
Teaching Assistant and keen golfer Jo Scott were looking to get a few golfers involved when she asked the girls if they like to help out at the event which took place at the end of July.
With many of the year 11 students volunteering, the College are hoping this enthusiasm continues as they put on after-school golf lessons for the students.
Head Teacher Jo Storey is also working towards building a partnership with Woburn Golf Club which will enable the girls access to the club’s facilities.
