If golf is going to grow—which we all should hope it does—the game will have to find new and better ways to attract women. Enter International Women’s Golf Day, which will be celebrated for the first time on Tuesday, June 7.
On that day, from 4-8 p.m. wherever you happen to be, a worldwide collection of courses, clubs, driving ranges, practice centers, and retail outlets will welcome women and girls to golf. And it isn’t only for new golfers; existing female enthusiasts are encouraged to attend the festivities and enjoy a selection of golf-related activities including a nine-hole scramble, socializing, networking, listening to speakers, and discovering more ways to get into the game. Facilities around the U.S. have signed on, as have clubs and courses in Ireland, Puerto Rico, Canada, England, and South Africa.
For a full list of participating facilities and more information on how to get involved, check out the website. And if you are a woman looking to get into golf or play more golf, or you know an interested woman, this is the day to get started. Organizers hope to make IWGD an annual event.
