ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue has proclaimed Saturday as "Girls Golf Day" in Georgia. Some local girl scouts lined up to to tee off and learn a little golf etiquette  at First Tee of Albany.

One girl scout who's never golfed before said she looks forward to learning more about the game.

"I can learn a bunch of things about golf because I don't know that much about golf, but I think its a fun sport because I have the opportunity to meet people and learn more golf etiquette."

The Georgia Golf foundation and First Tee offered free golf clinics for scouts in seven cities around Georgia.
