‘It’s clear that women’s golf is an untapped market in this country compared to the rest of Europe. National Golf Month presents a real opportunity for clubs, centres and pros to exploit this participation gap and come up with new and engaging ways to grow the sport.”

Why try golf?

Golf can be played by everyone, irrespective of age, gender or ability and is one of the few sports in which men and women can compete alongside each other.  As well as being a fun way to spend a few hours in the open air, it will help keep you fit and healthy – a walk around the course will easily accumulate the 10,000 steps that all of us are supposed to walk every day – and a typical round of golf will burn off at least 500 calories, without the need to work-up a sweat.

How pros, clubs and centres can get involved

By encouraging as many women as possible to visit your club or centre to experience the best of what our sport can offer, you can play a part in growing our sport and growing your business.

The importance of attracting more women into golf

It is essential for the economic health and reputation of the sport that we encourage even more women to get onto the nation’s golf courses and driving ranges.  This is the reason why we have decided to focus this year’s National Golf Month on encouraging women who are new to the game to try the sport and persuading lapsed female players to revisit their local course, club or centre.
