A few of our favorite pictures from the 2019 Girls Golf season!
LPGA-USGA Girls Golf is a national program that uses golf instruction to empower young women with confidence and teach them valuable life skills. YWCA Bethlehem has been the local Girls Golf affiliate since 2003. We welcome girls ages 6 to 17 to join us for our 18th season in 2020.
