MEGHAN MACLAREN TEES OFF AS NEW AMBASSADOR FOR GOLF FOUNDATION

THE GOLF FOUNDATION has appointed Megan MacLaren as an ambassador for the national golf charity, as she aims to inspire young people to take up golf.

MacLaren, currently fourth in the Ladies European Tour Order of Merit, already has four wins under her belt in her professional career, including two wins at the NSW Open in Australia.

Her first assignment in her new role was to hit the first official tee shot of the foundation’s national GolfSixes League series at Goodwood, which helps thousands of boys and girls to thrive playing team golf.

Over 250 golf clubs will feature in the new league, across England, Scotland and Wales, with more than 3,000 children and their families benefiting from the initiative.

“It was wonderful today to meet and chat with the young players and their parents,” said MacLaren, who hails from Northamptonshire.

“Many of them are new to golf but it was great to see families walking around together in the fresh air. It was also very refreshing to see competitive mixed golf at a young age so that girls and boys see this as a normal part of golf and life.

“I am really impressed with the active efforts by this charity to encourage more girls into golf and to give girls of all ages opportunities within the sport, even offering them leadership training.

“Boys and girls need a welcoming environment and good mentors in order to thrive together.”

The Golf Foundation supports young people to start, learn and stay in the game, and emphasises the importance of golf being fun, inspiring and accessible for all.
