Women and Girls in Golf Week 2021

Women and Girls in Golf Week 2021

23/07/2021

The PGA is supporting ‘Women and Girls in Golf Week’ – an online campaign promoting female participation at all levels and challenging negative perceptions about the game.

This year’s campaign runs from 16-22th August and is once again timed to coincide with the staging of the AIG Women’s Open at Carnoustie Golf Links when the eyes of the world are firmly focused on the women’s game.

The week aims to unite the golf industry and celebrate the successes of women and girls both on and off the course.

As well as involving media outlets in the promotion of the women’s game, there is the chance for PGA Members and the golfing public – both male and female – to join in the online fun.

There are three ways to get involved:

  • During Women and Girls in Golf Week use the #WhyIGolf in posts on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and remember to tag in England Golf.
  • Individuals can share their #WhyIGolf stories now for an opportunity to be featured in England Golf’s national videos or on the England Golf website.
  • Clubs and facilities can also deliver activities during the week – England Golf has created a range of assets.

There are seven themes for the week – one for each day of the campaign – and these cover all areas of the game and the golf industry. There are Careers (Monday), Volunteering (Tuesday), Health (Wednesday), Competing (Thursday), Role Models, (Friday), Newbies (Saturday) and Join the club (Sunday).

Lauren Spray – women and girls in golf manager at England Golf – said: “Playing the game, helping out at club, working in the golf industry – there are so many roles in the game for women and girls to enjoy and we aim to highlight these to a wide and growing audience.”
