Weather Delay at Merion, Junior Girls Golf Options & The Littlest Golfer Tees it Up at Burke Park, VA

While waiting for news on the weather delay at Merion golf club, I did some brief research on some junior girls golf options:

LPGA Girls-Golf of Valley Forge

The LPGA-USGA Girls Golf of Greater Newark, Inc. , also conducts  a Pitch and Putt League at Ash Brook Golf Course in Scotch Plains.
Girls involved in LPGA-USGA Girls Golf work with a PGA or LPGA Instructor to learn the basics in rules, etiquette, full swing, short game, and putting.  
The program helps develop self esteem;  provides opportunities and grant responsibilities to girls; provides an incentive to continue to progress and improve the game; creates a network in which girls feel comfortable in golf and teaches an appreciation and love for the game of  golf.
The Girls Golf program runs every Wednesday evening, from May 22nd – August 7th, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Galloping Hill. The Pitch and Putt League meets on Saturday mornings at 10 a.m. in June and July at Ash Brook.

“Our programs introduce girls to golf and make it fun,” said program director Beverly Harrison. “We’ve grown each year with more girls participating and with more volunteers.  This year we are also providing an introductory program for parents who can make good use of their time at the course while they are waiting for their children.

I was in Virginia last week seeing my specialist who is in charge of directing me through the bartonella & protomyxoa protocols and got the chance to spend some time with my nephews.

My hubbie and I took the 4 yr-old birthday boy to  Burke Park in Fairfax county. If you are ever in the region, CHECK IT OUT! BURKE LAKE PARK homepage

We hit the putting green (for 10 minutes of fun!), then a train ride, playground action, nature walk, ride on a carousel and kicking a beach ball around a field.
