Golf Isn't Just For Boys!

If you thought golf was just for boys, think again!

Barton-on-Sea Junior Section member, 11 year old Ellen (Ellie) Mans, is on a one girl crusade to prove that girls can enjoy the game and be just as successful at golf as boys.

Ellie first tried golf at the age of 6 with her brother Jack and joined Barton in 2015 as a Junior Member at the age of 9. She rapidly made a name for herself in the Junior Section winning the Lady Captain’s award for the Most Improved Player in her first year of membership. That early promise has proved to be no flash in the pan, and under the tutelage of Head Professional Peter Rodgers, Ellie has continued to improve and develop her game, achieving many notable successes both inside and outside of the club.

Her early promise was quickly recognised by the County, and Ellen first played for the Hampshire Girls Team in 2015 at 10 years of age.

2016 saw Ellen twice listed on the Daily Telegraph BMW Junior Leaderboard, following her wins at the Ferndown Junior Open and Brokenhurst Manor Junior Open. She was also the Handicap Champion at the Hampshire Girls Southern Regional Championships at the Army Golf Club, which was her first 36 hole win, plus the IAPS U11 Girls National Champion.

Continuing to impress, at the tender age of 11 years of age she has been included in the 2017 Hampshire Girls U18 Performance Group where she is the youngest of the three “rookies” in the squad.

So there you have it, Ellen Mans is proof that girls can enjoy the game and be every bit as successful at it as the boys.

If you are a girl and interested in taking up golf, Barton-on-Sea Golf Club is always looking to recruit keen young players to its Junior Section and the many advantages and benefits that membership brings.

Why not give it a go? Ellie would love for you to join her in playing the game she loves.

You too can prove that “Golf Isn't Just For Boys!”
