Women’s Day Golf scheduled for June 6th

Women’s Golf Day (WGD) is a one-day, global golf initiative, launched in 2016 and scheduled to take place this year on June 6th, enables women all over the world to participate in a four-hour golf event no matter their experience. Players new to the game take two hours of lessons while those who already know the game, play nine holes. The rest of the time is spent networking, socializing, and learning more about locally available golf options. The format is a fun and highly inclusive environment fueled by global community involvement.

This four-hour, one-day event introduces thousands of new golfers to the sport while transcending language, culture, religion, and race. On this single day, women from Australia to Hawaii and every time zone in between will celebrate golf.

Women’s Golf Day creates critical mass through a collaborative effort and allows women nearly anywhere to go to a golf course or retail location and enjoy a few hours of golf and networking, with a chance to learn more about ways to get engage with the sport.

The idea was created based on data and research showing the importance of women as economic influencers and the vital role women can play in growing the golf industry, while influencing and increasing participation among themselves and children.

Golf courses, retail golf stores, driving ranges and golf entertainment facilities serve as venues. Events may be public or private, complimentary or fee-based, at the discretion of each location.

As well they decide if they want to charge fees or have the event be complimentary. This freedom enables private clubs to participate without compromising their operating structure.
