Black Girls Golf
Black Girls Golf is the largest and fastest growing golf community for African American women and girls with nearly 3,000 members in 33 states and Canada. We provide a fun and welcoming environment for women to learn, practice and play golf.
I love helping women get the information and tools they need to learn their way around the golf course. We are womencentric and it's very important to us that everyone is having fun and is comfortable.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
All of our new students are welcomed with an email and instructions for what to do when they arrive at the golf course. Most of our clinics are groups clinics, so it's fun and interactive.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been playing golf more than 20 years and have been on the outside looking in. I know the intimidation, fear, and anxiety that creeps in for women on the golf course. I work with the best teaching professionals who understand that women have unique needs.
How did you get started teaching?
I started Black Girls Golf after experiencing first hand how uncomfortable the golf course can be. I wanted to create a safe space for women to learn the technical skills associated with the game, but also the confidence and assertiveness necessary to play at a certain level.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with students as young as 8 years old up to 60+. We do not discriminate based on age or race. However, we do protect the environment for women by not allowing men to participate in our classes.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
We plan beginner only events to give new golfers a feel for the golf course. We have helpers who are experienced female golfers who help them around the course for 4 holes. It's always so rewarding for me to see their growth in the game AND they're having fun.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Be sure the instructor has worked with beginners and with women. Women learn a little differently than men and our physical make up required an instructor who understands that.
