Northern Counties Girls' Golf Association
The aim of NCGGA is to provide opportunities for girls to raise their game after the Clubgolf stage by introducing more coaching opportunities at their local club and short 3/6/9 hole competitions at other clubs so that you can meet girls from all over the County. Every year we nominate a girl to play in the Junior Inter-divisional match which is a joint team consisting of girls from Northern, Perth & Kinross, Aberdeenshire and Angus.
This year there are Junior fixtures throught the season including Fortrose and Rosemarkie, Carrbridge, Bonar Bridge & Ardgay, Boat of Garten and Torvean. Take a look at the Fixtures page for more info. The fixture entry fees are £5 (£8 for the Adult/Girls Foursome at Fortrose and Rosemarkie) and are 18 and 9 hole depending on handicap. At the McDermott Trophy event at Torvean girls with a maximum handicap of 36 are encouraged to attend. For more info, contact Junior Organiser, Jenny Milne.
We realise that many of you have just completed the ClubGolf coaching programme, or are currently in the middle of receiving coaching - take a look at the Girl's Coaching page and the Player Pathway to see what opportunities are available to you. So, now we want you to get out there on the course and enjoy playing whether it’s only 3, 6 or 9 holes by meeting up with other girls in clubs across Northern Counties who are doing exactly the same as you. Don't forget to take out your membership - the form for this year can be downloaded here.
