Florida, United States: Further evidence is emerging of a rise in the number of females taking up the game.
Mirroring trends in other parts of the world, more females across Asia are reported to be trying their hand at golf.
Although the Executive Women’s Golf Association (EWGA) does not yet have a foothold in Asia, the organisation’s drive to invite women to discover golf is paying off in America.
This year, 2,000 women have joined this golf community for women to get engaged, learn to play and have fun.
With EWGA Chapters located in more than 120 cities throughout the United States as well as in international locations including Bermuda, Canada, Italy and South Africa, the organisation is dedicated to inviting and welcoming women of all skill levels into the sport to enjoy all that the game has to offer.
“For the second year in a row, 2,000 new members have joined our Association to experience what golf is all about and to have fun,” said Pam Swensen, EWGA’s Chief Executive Officer.
“This is exciting for our organisation and the industry to be able to invite women to the game and help them get comfortable playing. We are constantly striving to provide meaningful, organised golf experiences and business connections that open doors and give women tools to be successful on and off the course.”
With more than 3,500 events annually, EWGA members have access to many grass-roots connections to play golf, elevate their game, competitive play, golf travel as well as a built in community of thousands of women who share similar interests.
Conveniently organised activities to meet a busy women’s schedule are key to EWGA’s success.
