The LPGA -USGA Girls Golf chapters of Southeast LA and San Fernando Valley came together with love and empowerment on the brain for their February activities to celebrate their love for themselves, each other and the game they play.

At each chapter’s Galentine’s Day celebration there was a mix of golf activities and Galentine’s fun. Girls decorated valentines bags, wrote valentines to themselves and the girls around them and participated in golf games.

“Today is all about self-love and loving each other,” said SELA site director and instructor Teresa Thornton.

Here, girls show off their Galentine’s Day fun and share what they love about golf.
