Our Mission

1. FUN - Though scores are kept, winning is definitely secondary to enjoying the raucous fun atmosphere at GIGL Jamborees. And while GIGL Plus is substantially more competitive than the other GIGL leagues, having fun is still a main priority.

2. TEAM - The fun increases when the girls are on a team from their town playing with other girls they have gotten to know. In addition, increasing the focus on team will decrease the self-centeredness that is endemic with golf.

3. GIRLS ONLY - Many girls find it much more fun and less intimidating when there are no boys involved. GIGL is the only all girls, youth, town based team golf league in New England.

4. PLAY/COMPETE - Though there is instruction with the GIGL Jamborees and GIGL Pink, there is always team tournament or a team round because if it is a goal to get more girls to play golf then it only makes sense to let them play golf.

5. LEARNING - No experience is necessary to play at the big GIGL Jamborees, and we have some type of clinic before each tournament because the fun increases the better they get.  The clinics are run by GIGL Experts such as HOFs Pat Bradley & Kay McMahon, and LPGA Stars Brittany Altomare, Megan Khang, Michele Bell, Pamela Kerrigan Johnson and Naree Song.

6. LOW COST - The GIGL Jamboree green's fees are only $10. GIGL Pink & GIGL Purple sessions are also only $10.  And a 36 hole GIGL Plus tournament only costs $34!!  GIGL does not make any money from any of our events. No one associated with GIGL receives any compensation.  We provide clubs, tees and balls for free for any girl who needs them.

7. NO MAJOR COMMITMENT - We realize that kids (and parents) are currently overloaded time-wise with many other sports an activities. With GIGL there is no requirement to go to ever team practice, lesson or tournament. A girl can attend whichever GIGL events she can, and pays for only those events.

8. EXPANSION - Though GIGL is currently based in Norton, Mass. girls come from all over New England.  It would be nice if they didn't have to.  Plans are in the works for new GIGLs in Rhode Island, Vermont, and Western Mass. Long term plan is to get GIGLs coast to coast.

9. SELF-ESTEEM - A plethora of studies have shown that a girls self-esteem rises substantially when she is a member of a team. Unfortunately, many girls are not physically aggressive enough excel at most team sports.  Golf, however, does not require such aggressiveness, but there are no all girls youth golf team - until now.

10. STRUCTURE - Until GIGL the only ways for girls to learn to play golf were to go to a clinic/camp or get lessons.  GIGL, however, uses the familiar and successful structure that works for every other sport.  Young girls can join a GIGL Pink team where they'll get coaching and learn to play competitive (well, slightly competitive) rounds of 3 holes of alternate shot, par-3 golf.  When they turn ten then can then move up to GIGL Purple where they'll play 9 holes of stroke play par-3 golf, And then eventually they can join GIGL Plus and play on full length golf courses with a team.
