Girls Golf Revolution
Eric MacCluen has set out to make golf more accessible to girls in our area. Eric's goal of raising funds and beginning a organization that would change the course for girls in golf is quickly becoming reality. In February 2014, Girls Golf Revolution (GGR) was established as a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization with an enthusiastic group of parents as well as community leaders who came together to create a board of directors and infrastructure for the foundation. Promoting the game of golf to girls through free clinics, school gym classes, and similar activities is just the beginning of the opportunities being introduced by the Girls Golf Revolution. To learn more about this foundation you can read the complete article "Charting a New Course for Girls in Chester County" published in The Women's Journal; please click here

How do I sign up?
- You will need to click on the "Book Now" button to the right and set up an account with Smarter Lessons if your child does not already have one. Please set up the account in your child's name as only their name should appear on the class list and not another family member. If you have more than one child attending you must create an account for each of them.
- You will then be able to access the online schedule through smarter lessons and register for each class you wish to attend. You must sign up to show up! So, please make sure each student is on the list for each class they will attend as we will not permit class size to exceed the 12 student limit.
- Finally, if you cannot attend a class you have registered for please make sure you go online and cancel so that someone else may possibly attend.
We Need your Help:
There is no fee for this program. Girls Golf Revolution is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization that is determined to offer great programs for girls as well as make every attempt to keep our costs down. You can help support our efforts by hopefully helping us in one or more ways.
- If you would like to donate money or time to our cause, it is always greatly appreciated.
- We would hope that the girls and parents would possibly help in a future event.
- Our next event is an auction on October 25th at Applecross C.C. We definitely need any help we can get with prizes, setup, cleanup, etc.
Eric MacCluen would like to extend a warm Thank You to all of those who have made this new and game changing
adventure come to fruition and to all of you who continue to support our cause.
