We’re thrilled to share some exciting moments from the recent Women Golfers Give Back Annual Golf Tournament which took place on June 19, 2023, at the picturesque Whitemarsh Country Club. Kate Marsden, a talented 14-year-old golfer, had the incredible opportunity to attend the event and has graciously shared her experiences with us. Below are some questions forwarded to her via email with her responses. Let’s dive into her journey!
How long were you at the event?
I attended both the morning and afternoon sessions. Each lasted about four hours. It was a full day of golfing, fun, and learning!
Did you meet anyone with whom you might consider a mentor?
While I met several incredible mentors during the event, I connected particularly well with two experienced golfers, Erin Martin and Courtney Curcio. They shared similar playing styles and spent time discussing various techniques and strategies with me. I am excited about the possibility of Erin or Courtney becoming a mentor in the future!
What did you learn?
I learned about various aspects of the game, including refining my swing technique, improving my putting skills, and understanding the importance of mental focus during a round of golf. Moreover, I gained insights into the etiquette and sportsmanship that embody the spirit of the game.
From your perspective, is there anything that you would add to the event?
While the event was already fantastic, I would suggest incorporating more interactive workshops and small-group activities. These additions would allow participants to engage further with mentors and fellow golfers, creating a more immersive learning environment.
Is there any additional insight about the event that you would offer that might encourage a peer to participate in the future?
I would definitely encourage peers to participate in future Women Golfers Give Back events. The opportunity to connect with inspiring mentors, forge new friendships, and play on a beautiful golf course is an experience like no other. It’s a chance to nurture your love for golf and grow as a golfer, both technically and personally.
