Irish Ladies Golf Union and RandA to invest 

30,000 euros in development of club girls' golf 

The Irish Ladies Golf Union is delighted to announce that coaching grants will be awarded to up to 100 clubs through the 2016 ILGU Club Coaching Grant Programme.  
This initiative sees the ILGU, supported by the RandA, invest almost €30,000 in the development of girls' golf within clubs.  The purpose of these grants is to subsidise a girls’ only coaching programme within clubs.  
The ILGU, through eachdistrict junior development committee, will provide advice and support to clubs through the process of planning and delivering coaching, in addition to suggesting activities and events which clubs can offer to further encourage girls’ participation in a coaching programme at their club.
Grants, which will range from €200/£165 - €350/£275 per club, based on the number of girls participating in the clubs’ coaching programme, will also be subject to a number of contributing factors such as number of junior female members registered, number of active girls, compliance with the ILGU Junior Policy, previous record of delivering club coaching under terms of the grant and history of communication with ILGU Junior Development Committee (JDC) members.
