West Palm Beach, Florida, United States: In response to the continued growth of its global network, Women’s Golf Day (WGD) has launched three new language versions of its website to reflect the diverse nature of its community and WGD’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
The site is now available in French, Spanish and Japanese. Foreign language content will be integrated into WGD’s social media activity in preparation for the June 1 event day.
The new functionality will enable more locations and women to participate in the global event.
Elisa Gaudet, Founder of Women’s Golf Day, said: “We are now in our sixth year and our community reaches all corners of the globe. Over 20% of our Facebook followers are French speakers, we have events on every continent and this year launched in Japan with our first course registered location, Hirao Country Club in Toyokawa, thus boosting our presence in Asia.
“It is the first step in our efforts to ensure that golfers around the world have the best WGD experience.”
Olivier Denis-Massé, Directeur Délégué of the Federation Français de Golfe, hopes the new language version will encourage more venues to sign up for the event.
He said: “The French Golf Federation is happy to support Women’s Golf Day in 2021. Growing the number of women who play golf is important for the future of the sport. Women’s Golf Day events can help to attract new women golfers, and it’s a fantastic opportunity for existing ones to help and guide their friends in their first steps in golf.”
On June 1, women and venues around the world will – where Covid restrictions allow – take to the fairways to celebrate Women’s Golf Day.
