It’s been quite a start to 2020 for Zoe as she received her third US Kids Top 50 Coaching award at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida.
July is a busy month in any Golfer’s calendar and especially this year for Zoe whose activities range from teaching at Lurgan’s Golf Academy, running summer camps, shooting videos for the Belfast Telegraph and teaching at the Swingzone at The Open Championship in Portrush.
When PGA Professionals, Michelle Holmes and Zoe Allen met Kenyan PGA Professional Emanuel Kasio, they were impressed with Emanuel’s achievements in introducing Golf to children in Kenya. Emanuel, one of six US Kids Master Teachers based outside USA, has ambitious plans to run US Kids tournaments in Kenya and introduce Golf to neighbouring Uganda and Rwanda.
Zoë is off to U.S.A. where she will visit the prestigious Michelle Holmes School of Golf, Chesapeake, Virginia, before travelling to Pinehurst, North Carolina, where she has been appointed as a Tournament Director at the U.S. Kids World Championships.
Following her experience as a Tournament Director at the 2017 European and World Championships, Zoe was invited to be Tournament Director at Longniddry Golf Club for the 2018 US Kids Golf European Championships. A total of six courses will host the event held near Muirfield, East Lothian, Scotland in the last week of May. Fresh from organising the U.S. Kids North of Ireland Spring Tour in Ireland, Zoe describes her experience at the Championships.
Zoe has had a great start to 2019 as she has just been named a US Kids Top 50 Coach for the second year running.
One week into my trip to the Michelle Holmes School of Golf and having a great time so far!
Zoe’s calendar for 2018 is filling up fast!
