Same Day, Same Time, Around the World, Golf Facilities Welcome Women to Golf
New York, NY — The inaugural International Women’s Golf Day (WGD) will be celebrated around the world on Tuesday, June 7, 2016.
Between the hours of 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm, this first-of-its-kind, global-growth-of-the-game event will welcome women and girls to golf facilities where they’ll be introduced to the game in a welcoming and spirited environment. The event also encourages existing female golf enthusiasts to attend and tee it up for nine holes of late-afternoon scramble-format golf.
International Women’s Golf Day was started by a group of golf-industry veterans working together to deliver an introductory golf experience to women and girls around the world. The four-hour experience consists of two hours of golf and two hours of socializing. From 4:00 to 6:00 pm the participant will have the option of two hours of lessons or an on-course, 9-hole experience. From 6:00-8:00 pm, attendees will participate in a celebratory gathering that will feature socializing, networking, speakers, information on more ways to play golf, and the chance to make connections through the game.

“We are inviting all golf facilities to participate in this event to engage and encourage women and girls to play golf,” said WGD Founder Elisa Gaudet. “Women’s Golf Day is an opportunity for golf facilities to host a women-welcoming event that works for women in their community as well as for their facility. There is no charge to the facility and lots of upside and community engagement for golf courses.”
