I love what you are doing for women's golf. Not enough can be done to up-sell the position of women in sport worldwide.
I am the Executive Public Relations Manager to my professional golfing husband, Nicky Litherland, here in the land of Oz.
We are currently organising fund raising events to get to the US.
I, too, play golf although not as well as I would like, nor as often. I commenced playing 2 years ago, fell pregnant with our first baby girl, played up until I was 7.5months before having to take a time out. I returned 5 months later, and shortly after fell pregnant again with our second baby girl. Again I played until 8mths pregnant before stopping and returning again 5mths later. Recently I upgraded equipment to that which was more suitable for my stronger swing style. My handicap has dropped radically since and things have really been improving. Both our baby girls will definitely be golfers :-)
Anyway girls, I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I am onboard with what you are doing and should you need any assistance let me know. I'd love to be a GolfBelle oneday :-)
I've liked your FB page and hope to connect with you all there.
Take it easy and take care all of you.

Just a note to introduce you to my golf related putting game, and find it a tentative place within your grey matter storage area.
Somewhat different to other charity fundraisers and events, I intend mine to be an ongoing event, in which participants compete for a considerble purse, and where there is no guarantee that the purse will be secured by a golf professional.
During events here, in which golfers and non-golfers have participated, the results were rather amazing. Whilst most are won by golfers, quite a few (I guestimate 40% of the games) have actually been won by people completely unfamiliar with golf.
The skill needed is purely putting - not mini-golf style tricky putts, but realistic golf putting.
The challenge is not the typical Million Dollar single stroke 60-150 foot putt, but real competitive putting over 6 or 18 holes.
Playing a game requires just two players, and a game takes around 12 minutes for a 6-hole round, or 30 minutes for an 18-hole round.
Games and challenges played here to date have been good fun for all involved - golfers as well as non-players of the real game.
I don't want to bore you with details at this time, but if there is someone who would like to take a careful look at what my game involves, please contact me and I will provide you all the answers available presently.
You may care to have a look at my temporary website - http://www.puttkew.co.za
Also let me wish you a great 2011 with this golfbelles initiative - it seems a fine concept. I guess I'd better find you a local participant here or the Kiwi's will outdo us.
Have a happy day
