Beginner Women’s Clinics Registration Now Open
The NSGA will be in your area conducting women’s clinics with PGA teaching professionals. Our sessions will give beginners a better understanding of the basics of full swing and short game mechanics. These 1.5 hour sessions are designed to help the new golfer get into the game with expert instruction.
The clinics will also include light refreshments and a 9-hole voucher for golf to take your skills to the course. Morning and afternoon sessions are available and golf clubs can be provided. So take that next step in taking up the game!
Registration is open on a first come first serve basis and each clinic will be a maximum of 16 ladies in each group (32 per location, 16 per session).
The NSGA is looking forward to seeing you at our clinics.

Jaguar Land Rover Halifax raises over $2000 for Junior Program!
Jaguar Land Rover Halifax is one of NSGA’s main sponsors during the championship season. They are the title sponsor for the NSGA Junior Provincial Championship, as well as a green in regulation game at each of our Championships.
If you played in one of our events, you may have noticed a Land Rover Halifax’s very own John Gwynne-Timothy, parked with his Land Rover on a Par 3. He volunteers his time to record every shot that lands on the green, and for every shot that does, Jaguar Land Rover Halifax donates $10 to Junior Golf programs and initiatives in Nova Scotia.
At the Women’s Amateur/Senior at Clare Golf and County Club, 35% of the competitors hit the green raising $200. Our second event took place at Digby Pines for our Junior Championship and 55% of our competitors hit the green, raising $590. John then followed us to our Men’s Amateur hosted by Avon Valley Golf and Country Club where he sat on Hole 8 and recorded 34% of the participants hit the green, raising $560.
The NSGA and John then went to the Men’s Mid-Amateur hosted by Paragon Golf and Country Club. John recorded 22% of the field hit their tee shot onto the green and raised $300. At our Women’s Two-Ball hosted by Abercrombie, John sat on Hole 10 recorded 26% of the competitors hit the green and raised $380.
With 5 events in the books, our participants have raised just over $2000 for Junior Golf in Nova Scotia. A huge thank you goes to John and Jaguar Land Rover Halifax for all the support and putting this on at our events. We appreciate what you are doing for the game and a reminder to all of our competitors to keep hitting the greens on those Par 3’s!
