Girls looking to play golf this fall have an opportunity to do so in the fourth season Girls Go Golfing Fall Girls' Golf Series running in September and October.

"This nine-event series for girls in 4th-12th grades will feature a variety of skill levels," said director Lydia Siipola, the recently retired Hunterdon Central High School girls' golf coach. "The goal is to provide an avenue and incentive for players to hone their skills.  Girls Gone Golfing is all about encouraging friendly competition in the spirit of the game. It is open to girls from throughout and beyond Hunterdon County."

Girls will play up to nine holes each day, entering a minimum of two events.The competitive atmosphere will feature a variety of formats similar to the Solheim, Ryder, Curtis or Walker Cup.

"We are fortunate that the USGA is located a stone's throw from Hunterdon County," noted Siipola," My idea is that parents and participants take the trip to Far Hills to play the Pynes Putting Course and visit Golf House and the Museum during the summer to get psyched for golf in the fall." The total cost of the series is $30, to be paid at the first event with a maximum of 24 girls participating.

"Hunterdon County has a plethora of golf courses and facilities where juniors can ask their parents to take them to improve upon their golf skills, said Siipola. "GGG wants the participants and their parents to spend some quality time playing golf' games whilst they practice putting and chipping and all those other shots that are close to the green. "Just like organized soccer or softball leagues, GGG gives participants a reliable and consistent schedule of events. The events provide the incentive for players to improve their short game skills on their own and with the help of a local golf professional."

The series will begin at Heron Glen on Tuesday, Sept. 6 with the first tee time of 4:00 p.m. All questions and registration will be handled electronically at: jsiip@comcast.net

The other events will be held as follows: Thursday, Sept. 8 at Beaver Brook 4 p.m.; Tuesday, Sept. 13 at High Bridge Hills  at 4:00 p.m.; Thursday, Sept. 15 at Beaver Brook at 4 p.m.; Tuesday, Sept. 20 High Bridge Hills at 4 p.m.; Thursday, Sept. 22 at Heron Glen at 4 p.m.; Thursday, Oct. 4  at Stanton Ridge; Thursday, Oct. 6 at Copper Hill Country Club at 4 p.m. and Tuesday, Oct 11 at Raritan Valley Country Club in Somerset County.
