Introducing Golf & Glam To Las Vegas: Pro Golfer Seema Sadekar Launches Junior Golf Program For Girls
Published on Tue, May 14, 2013 (1:39 p.m.)LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – May 13, 2013 – Seema Sadekar, Las Vegas-based professional golfer currently playing on the LPGA Symetra Tour and the CN Canadian Women’s Tour, announces the launch of GOLF & GLAM, a junior golf program for girls.
Open to girls ages 18 and under, the three-hour GOLF & GLAM clinics will hone golf skills, as well as provide true golf fashion and lifestyle experiences to young females. The first hour consists of a Lemonade Tee-Party, golf stretches, and an introduction to the game of golf. Thereafter, two 45-minute tutorials will be dedicated to interactive long game and short game strategies. Between lesson stations, the girls will take part in a Popsicle Social Break, as well as a “GIFT-GLAM” session, during which the girls will receive gift bags and learn golf-related essentials – health, style and beauty tips for being under the sun, etiquette, and staying friendly and fashionable on the course. The participating girls will enjoy a group lunch and will receive a GOLF & GLAM Certificate of Completion.
“Play golf and sparkle,” says Sadekar, an advocate for style, fitness, fun and educating young women to find comfort and enjoyment through golf. “I have created this platform to give girls an opportunity to learn about golf and truly have fun playing it. My goal is to connect with young girls and women and to teach golf in such a way that they can enjoy and feel like they belong. The GOLF & GLAM approach makes golf sparkly, fashionable and fabulously accessible to girls. Our program is a lifestyle movement that will motivate young females to play golf without feeling forced to do it.”
Sadekar will lead each GOLF & GLAM clinic with instructional support by current and former LPGA professionals. With only 16 spots available per clinic, participants are assured individualized attention in both the golf and “glam” aspects of the program. Sadekar wants girls to learn how to express their personal senses of style though golf, helping them find golf fashion that suits their everyday style.
“I’m exhilarated to grow the game of golf in Las Vegas,” states Sadekar. “Our goal is to use our real life experiences as professionals and as former junior golfers to connect with our students. Through GOLF & GLAM, we are appealing to our participants’ interests first as young girls by implementing sparkly tees, gloves, beauty products, and lessons of pitching to colorful hoola-hoops as props. It’s that simple.”
GOLF & GLAM is inspired by Seema Sadekar’s personal golf style blog, SeemaStyle.com, which provides readers with tips on golf, fashion, beauty, and lifestyle to improve their game while finding personal connections with the world of golf. GOLF & GLAM’s first clinics will take place on Sunday, May 26, 2013 at Revere Golf Club and on Sunday, June 2, 2013 at DragonRidge Golf Club, both of which are located in Henderson, NV.
