Bedfordshire Golf Club Secures 'Girls Golf Rocks' for 2020 
Girls’ Golf Rocks is back at Bedfordhsire Golf Club. Our application for funding and programme support in 2020 has been approved and just received back from Golf England. We're delighted to be able to support more girls to Get Into Golf! 
 
Girls' Golf Rocks gives girls the opportunity to try an exciting and sociable new sport. With the help of some of our existing girl players acting as ambassadors, Bedfordshire Golf Club, is offering a fantastic experience for girls to sample the game, meet new friends and enjoy a new sport. The 2020 programme comprises a FREE taster session followed by six weekly, group-coaching sessions at a highly discounted price. Participants will receive a 9 iron club and goodie bag. All instruction is delivered by our PGA qualified coaches on our outstanding practice facilities including our floodlit, undercover driving range. 
 
HOW IT WORKS 
The FREE taster session at Bedfordshire Golf Club from 5 – 7 pm, is targeted at girls aged 5-18 and will last 2 hours with refreshments included! Equipment is free to use on the day, all the girls need to do is turn up in comfy clothing and some flat soled shoes to enjoy the fun. 
 
After the taster event, the six-week coaching course is a chance for the girls to learn a bit more about golf and make new friends with other participants and our ambassadors. The final session will include a golfing experience on our own high quality, Par 3 golf course. This for a great price of just £35. 
The six-week coaching course sessions are scheduled for Wednesdays in May and June inclusive at 5-6pm. 
To book your place on the taster session call our Pro-Shop on 01234 822555 ext 3

Róisín 'Eagles' in Junior Golf 'Major' - November 2019 
 
This year over 22,000 junior golfers teed it up at 600 plus courses across the British Isles to earn the right to be one of 24 (12 boys & 12 girls) who qualified to play in the Justin Rose Telegraph Junior Golf Championship. The competition final was a 54 hole strokeplay tournament for under 18's played at the Quinta do Lago, Portugal. 
 
Twelve year old Róisín Scanlon, a Member at Bedfordshire Golf Club, became the youngest finalist in the 35 year history of the event and played against the UK's top juniors several years older than her. 
 
Róisín qualified for the final in Portugal on three under par thanks to her opening round of 72 in the English Girls under 14 Open Championships back in July. 
Róisín on course with Justin 
Just before the final in Portugal last week, the players had a surprise visit by Justin Rose who also put on a clinic. The highlight of the tournament for Róisín was when she made an up and down from behind a tree to make par in front of Justin Rose to receive a high-five. Then, on the Par 5, 18th she chipped in an Eagle in front of the supporters. After 3 rounds in the final in Portugal, Róisín finished a very creditable 10th place. 
 
Our congratulations to Róisín for performing so well against golfers so much older than her. 
 
Highlights of the event will be televised on Sky Sports over the Christmas period. 
Róisín, Justin and lots of silverware!

Congratulations to Roisin Scanlon who has qualified for the Justin Rose Telegraph Junior Golf Championships 2019 final, taking place from Monday 11th to Saturday 16th November 2019 – hosted by Quinta do Lago, Portugal. 
 
Roisin’s opening round of -3 at the English Girls Under 14 Open Amateur Championships placed her joint 7th on the national leaderboard, even though she has only just reached the age of 12! She will be joined by 11 other girls and 12 boys. Roisin will be the youngest player and one of youngest players ever to qualify for the finals. 
 
The top 12 in each of the boys’ and girls’ gross competitions will experience a taste of professional life not just through the 54-hole strokeplay finals, but also a media training session and TV coverage from Sky Sports and the first-class facilities and accommodation at the Portuguese resort. The competition will be televised on Sky Sports over the Christmas period. 
 
Our congratulations to her for qualifying and we wish her all the very best in the finals. 
'Golf Golf Rocks' - A Successful Programme - July 2019 
 
After a successful taster session at Bedfordshire Golf Club, we had 15 girls sign up for our 6 week GGR programme. 
 
Our Golf Professional Coaches Richard & Steve took the pupils through the various aspects of the game, which included: Putting, Chipping, Iron play & Woods. The last session included a few holes on our Academy course which the girls seemed to really enjoy. 
 
For the majority of the girls it was their first experience of golf, so our coaches kept things simple & made the sessions interactive & fun, with the pupils mainly working in pairs. Then, at the end of each session, they put the girls together in teams to ‘beat the pro’. 
 
In the final week of the programme, we offered an Improvers' Course to all the girls and we're delighted to say that 9 of them have signed up to it - that's a 60% conversion rate. Well done indeed to Richard and Steve for making the sessions so much fun. 
 
We now look forward to seeing their progress and hopefully, over this additional 4 week period, to seeing most of them progress into membership & all the game has to offer. 
 
This would provide a good boost for our growing Junior Section which has been so well developed by our Junior Organising Team of Taneisha & Anthony Scanlon along with our Pro's Richard Banks & Steve Connolly.

Roisin Wins European Title - June 2019 
 
Roisin Scanlon a member of the Bedfordshire Golf Club returned to Royal Musselburgh Golf Club, Scotland to participate in the USkids European Championships where she finished in second place last year. 
 
Roisin played in the 11-year-old age category. Scottish weather was not kind this year with high winds and heavy rain. After 2 solid rounds of -2 & +1, Roisin was 1 shot off the lead behind Lavanya Gupta of India and Juliette Demeaux of France. The 3-time world champion Isabella Dovhey of USA was a further 1 shot back. On the final round, the lead changed many times but only Roisin and Isabella (2018 champion) shot under par. Both Isabella and Roisin finished on 2 under par which resulted in a sudden death playoff. After 5 play-off holes through wet greens, Roisin kept her nerve and became age 11 Girls USkids European Champion for 2019. Our congratulations go to her for an amazing performance. 
 
Roisin was then selected along with Constanze-Louise Keferstein from Germany to play in the European Van Horn Cup which was played on Gullane No.3 golf course. The Van Horn Cup is a one-day best ball tournament which is contested between the top players from Western Europe against the top players from the rest of the world in age groups 11 - 18. Roisin and Constanze-Louise shot -5 but was not enough to beat the international pair.

Roisin Takes on the Stars in TeeToCup Challenge - April 2019 
 
Recently, Bedfordshire Golf Club's brightest young star Roisin Scanlon was invited to be part of Sir Clive Woodward’s golf team for the next year in the TeeToCup Challenge. They will be playing various matches against Naga Munchetty’s (BBC Breakfast) in Team Clive vs. Team Naga. 
 
The whole aim of the challenge is to see which team can reduce their handicap the most. They use TeeToCup software to share experiences and learning and support each other weekly. The teams are made up of various media and sporting legends, so for Roisin to be involved is a great honour. Each team is made up of 6 players and over the next 9 months will be sharing their experiences and learning through TeeToCup with the support of Trackman, Taylormade and Adidas. 
The teams, including Sir Clive Woodward, Naga Munchetty and our very own Roisin Scanlon 
The first match took place on Sunday 24th at Lambourne Golf Club and was fiercely contested with Sir Clive Woodward and Roisin dovetailing quite nicely with Roisin shooting just 4 over on the back nine. But Naga Munchetty and her husband fought to the end resulting in an honourable draw. 
 
 
Roisin really enjoyed the experience and is looking forward to their next match. 
Roisin with Sir Clive and Naga
