We all love golf, but what we really love about it is that more women and girls are starting to show their skills on the green. They are said to be fastest growing segment of golfers according to the National Golf Foundation. There are many reasons as to why golf is such a wonderful sport for all people of many ages to play, but for girls it can be so much more.
Picking Up Pointers From a PGA Pro
Since the #KiaClassic kicked off this weekend we made our way out to our local golf club to get a few pointers to be a better golfer. Normally we swing clubs at Top Golf, so the girls were excited to step up their swing. Other than benefiting their high score, I was looking for todays lesson to possible spark an interest in something new.
3 Reasons Why Golf is Perfect for Girls
- One of the first reasons I would love to see my girls take to golf, is because of the level of concentration. These days kids and adults alike have a hard time staying focused. After today’s golf lesson I feel my girls could benefit from the next level of concentration.
- Second, it’s a game where you should enjoy losing and winning. Girls can look at golf as their get away from the stress of school, and anything else that might be bogging them down. It can be their safe haven.
- Lastly, golf is a sport not only guys are good at, but girls are just as well off. There are some amazing women golfers out there who your daughters, granddaughters, sisters and nieces look up to. Golf should be a sport that is cherished and played to have fun.

The Kia Classic has developed a reputation for attracting one of the most competitive fields in women’s golf, and this year is no different,” said Tim Chaney, vice president of marketing communications, Kia Motors America. “As a member of the Southern California community, we are honored to share this event with golf fans throughout the region, and very proud of the tournament’s focus on recognizing and giving back to the brave men and women who have elected to serve our country.
In addition to a portion of ticket proceeds being donated to Hire Heroes USA, a national non-profit organization that helps military veterans find civilian jobs, active duty military members and their families (with ID) will receive complimentary admission to the Kia Classic all week. There will also be a special Military Appreciation Day on Friday, March 25. Representatives from Hire Heroes USA will be on-hand throughout the tournament to provide information about the services the organization offers and how to get involved.
Throughout the tournament, a fleet of Kia vehicles will transport players and fans around the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort grounds, and the winner of the Kia Classic will walk away with a brand-new K900 luxury sedan – the Official Vehicle of the LPGA. And several of Kia’s award-winning models will be on display throughout the course, which overlooks the Batiquitos Lagoon.
Thankfully we have a wonderful relationship with Kia Motors America, and love everything they do in and out of our community. Our lessons today were overall educational, entertaining and execllent exercise. All four of us had a wonderful time with our PGA instuctor, Russel Orth. We are looking forward to our next lesson, and maybe full game on the golf course.
