CEO and Founder of GirlGolf Inc. Claire Yu ’25 Featured by News12 Connecticut

RCDS junior Claire Yu is the CEO and Founder of GirlGolf Inc., a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide girls from underserved communities with an opportunity to learn how to play golf.

In March, News12 Connecticut featured Clair’s work organizing the GirlGolf drive at the Cos Cob Library in Greenwich, which collected over 100 new and gently-used golf clubs and 20 bags for middle school girls (watch Claire’s interview here). 

On May 20, GirlGolf will hold a Golf Extravaganza at the E. Gaynor Brennan Golf Course in Stamford for middle school girls, ages 10-15. The event will include distribution of the clubs and bags  collected from the drive, as well as a beginner lesson from a trained professional and on-course playing.

At RCDS, Claire is co-captain of RCDS Girls’ Varsity Golf. Last year, she led the team, as a 2023 co-captain, to the NYSAIS Championship title, shooting the lowest score of the championship. 

An inspiring intersection of athletics and service!
